I am running the FTP Server service on a Windows 2008 server.  When it was set up I only needed one user.  Now multiple users will need access to the FTP Server.  How do i create ftp folders (home directories) and only allow specific users to access them?

I have the security restrictions setup correctly.  Is there a way each user can be automatically put in their home directory when they make an FTP connection?

are you using IIS to create your FTP site and configure users authorizations?

Isolate Users Mode
The Isolate usersmode determines a unique home directory for each user derived from the user name. The home directory of the user is treated as a root directory for the user, and the user cannot navigate or access the physical file system outside of the root directory. If users need access to dedicated shared folders, then you can establish a virtual directory.
