Windows 2008 FTP - Access denied

I have a Windows 2008 server that's running FTP service.  I can login to the
ftp site as the Administrator but then when I try to download a file it tells
me "access denied".  

I checked the NTFS security on the folder and the file and I have Full
permissions.

Hi

Check the permissions on the IIS ftp folder and confirm if you are trying to ftp from the command prompt or using a FTP client with the "administrator" account.

if you are using the ie explorer to browse the FTP site it generally does it by logging as anonymous user.

can you double check the instruction from the below link about building a ftp website.

The link you have is for Windows 2003, not 2008.  

I figured it out though.  It was a NTFS permissions issue on the folder and the file itself.

I know the link was for 2003 but shouldn't be much different.
Glad you resolved it.
