Windows 2008 FTP

I have a Windows 2008 FTP server.  I have created a test user, given the user full rights  to the "ftproot" directory under NTFS.  I have also granted the user read and write access under the FTP settings.  The user can FTP into the server, download a file, however he is unable to upload files into this directory.  The error message I get is "Access denied".  

Thanks in advance.

    I am happy to report that I figured it out.  I created a folder using the name of the FTP user and assigned the appropriate rights, and voila.  Thanks.
