FTP Isolation Access

hello fellow EE community
ok so i have ftp isolation up and running on a ftp server this is the scenario;iis 8.
i have 2 ftp admin accounts that have access to the default ftp root directory; ftpadmin1 and ftpadmin2
i have 2 ftp user accounts called user1 and user2
each ftp user account only has access to their prospective directory.
what i want to know is if its possible that ftpadmin1 only has access to user1's directory and not to user2, vice versa?

i solved this:
you need to create the physical "LocalUser" directory in the ftproot directory. then  place all the user directories inside there,give individual admin rights to each user folder based on the ftp account name. create a ftpusers group and place all needed user accounts under this group. within iis make sure under "FTP Directory Browsing" you have "Virtual Directories" is checked on under the Directory Listing options. under the FTP Authorization make sure you "allow" the ftpusers group read and write.  ftp user isolation has to be enabled and username directory has to be selected. this will give each user their isolated ftp directory...now what i needed to do was get ftp access to some of the other users ftp directory via ftp. what you do is create virtual directories for the other user folders you need to access.

if FTP admin is having default on local machine or domain admin previllages then he'll have to full rights over the folders ...

if it's a only ftp admin you can change the permissions on the folder level i be leave...

all the best

all accounts are local, no domain driven accounts are being used.
