WSUS not downloading approved updates

I recently moved our WSUS off HyperV over to VMware using VMware convertor.  I approved some new updates and noticed the download was stuck at 0.00MB of 120MB.  Event ID 10032 “The server is failing to download some updates.”

Turns out, the D: drive containing WSUS items lost its NETWORK SERVICE permissions so I had to add that user, with ReadOnly permissions back to the root of D: and after i rebooted WSUS started downloading the new updates as normal.
