I am currently running a Windows 2008 r2 Standard and configured a user isolation ftp site using ii7.
The user isolation is working great but I need a more user friendly way to drag and drop files from my website.
I was wondering how to configure an administrator who could access all the isolation folders when I sign on to my ftp site.
Thanks in advance.

Have you set up the admin as a user for ftp?

I'm sorry maybe I did not explain correctly. I need to type in a specific user name and password(administrator) that will show all folders and files for every isolated user.

Do you mean a configuration where the administrator's home folder is the parent folder to each user's home folder so the directory structure looks like this:
admin_root_folder
   |-> userA_root_folder
   |      |-> some_file
   |-> userB_root_folder
   |      |-> other_file
   |-> userC_root_folder
           |-> file1_belonging_to_userC
           |-> file2_belonging_to_userC

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Yes well put!
Then the admin can add and delete files as needed.
