    FTP user isolation is a site property, not a server property. It can be turned on or off for each FTP site.
    There are three modes for FTP User Isolation. Each mode enables different levels of isolation and authentication.

    If you want users to be able to access their own directories,

    Use
    useradd username -d pathtofiles
    where "-d pathtofiles" will specify that their home directory will be wherever you want their files to go

    If you are running a webserver with default apache settings, you'll want their files to go onto
    /var/www/html/foldername/

    You can configure FTP User Isolation with IIS Manager

    When your FTP server is set to isolate users, all user home directories are located in a two-level directory structure in the FTP site directory (as configured on the FTP home directory property page). The FTP site directory can either reside on the local machine or on a network share.

    Note - You must be a member of the Administrators group on the local computer to perform the following procedure (or procedures), or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority.

    As a security best practice, log on to your computer using an account that is not in the Administrators group, and then use the Run as command to run IIS Manager as an administrator. From the command prompt, type runas /user:administrative_accountname "mmc %systemroot%\system32\inetsrv\iis.msc".
