    How to configure FTP User Isolation in IIS 7?
    1. In IIS Manager, Expand the Sites tree and select the website of interest.



    2. On the Features view, you will see icons for all of the FTP features. Double-click the FTP User Isolation icon.
    3. You will find different 5 options there:


      Do not isolate users. Start users in:

      FTP root directory

      If you enable this option, all FTP sessions will start in the root directory for the FTP site.

      User name directory

      If you enable this option, all FTP sessions will start in the physical or virtual directory with the same name of the currently logged on user if such folder exists. In case there is no such folder, FTP session will start in the root directory for the FTP site.

      Isolate users. Restrict users to the following directory:

      User name directory (disable global virtual directories)

      This option will isolate FTP user sessions to the physical or virtual directory with the same name of the FTP user account. The user are allowed to see only their FTP root location. Therefore, they are restricted from navigating higher up the physical or virtual directory tree. Any global virtual directories created will be ignored.

      User name physical directory (enable global virtual directories)

      This option will specifies that you want to isolate FTP user sessions to the physical directory with the same name of the FTP user account. The users are restricted to only its own FTP root directory and cannot navigate to higher up the physical directory tree. Any global virtual directories created will apply to all users.

      FTP home directory configured in Active Directory

      This option will isolate FTP user sessions to the home directory configured in the Active Directory account settings for each FTP user.
