We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

This is most like a permissions error.

1. Make sure E:\ahmed exsists and it is a local drive.

2. Make sure you do not have any other FTP services running on the port specified in IIS Management.

3. Make sure the permissions on the directory are not messed up. To test this, grant EVERYONE Access to the
    directory first to see it is appends properly. Verify the account the "FTP Service" is starting with and ensure
    that account has read/write permission. Typically, NETWORK SERVICES ,LOCAL SYSTEM etc.

4. Restart "World Wide Web Publishing Service" from the services.msc MMC Console.

5. Last restort, reboot the server.
