I have just set up FTP service on Windows XP on a stand alone computer. I  am using Windows XP command prompt to do a ftp into the local host.

My default FTP folder is C:\Inetpub\ftproot and I can 'put'  and 'delete' a file. I can also mkdir but I cannot delete the directory that I created. I also cannot put the file into the directory that I created. Any ideas?
