    ok so im using Serv-U FTP. i have an account for my friends, and i share 2 folders, one is in drive D: and one is in drive E:

    they all use simple Internet Explorer as their FTP client. if i set their home directory as D:, they can't get to E:, and vice versa. I'm not sure what to do. help?

    thanks!

    Try creating a shortcut to the one and placing it in the home folder of the other.

    Home = D:
    Shortcut to E: in the D:

    I'm bored so I'll walk you through it. I had the same problem. Here's what I did:

    First make a directory that you will set as the home directory. I made a folder in C:/FTP/Users

    Now go into Settings and click Add. In Physical Path put the actual directory you want them to be able to access. Next Map Physical path to the home directory (C:Ftp/Users). Finally make a name for it (whatever you want).

    Make sure you give the users acess to the home directory AND the Physical Path you made in the Settings. That should be it. You can add as many directories you want in the settings/Dir Acess.
