530 User cannot log in, home directory inaccessible. FTP In IIS 7.5

When you setup an FTP server in IIS 7.5, you can set it so that the FTP URL points to a dirrectent folder for each user login. If you setup an FTP user, you may get the following error when they try to connect to the FTP server:

530 User cannot log in, home directory inaccessible.

To fix this, make sure that the user has a directory setup in the FTP folder location. This directory should have the same name as the user account – note that the user account name is not the same as the user account login name 😉

The user must also have the appropriate permission to access the folder.
