Error while starting confluence 5.4

I upgraded confluence from 4.0 to 5.4 and now getting an error while trying to start confluence on tomcat localhost.

First it starts with a warning :

WARN [main] [atlassian.comgif.cml.AbstractDom4jXmlCofigurationPersister] saveDocumentAtomically Unable to move D:\data\confluence\confluence.cfg.xml172486425157717352tmp to D:\data\confluence\confluence.cfg.cml. Falling back to non-atomic overwrite.

Then tomcat keeps trying for liek 10 mins then error out and logs the below logs

When you ran the upgrade was the Confluence service running or was it stopped?

Does the user account that is running the confluence service have privliages into the D drive listed above?
