can't access directory in FTP directory

By wburdine ·
I was stupid in opening up my FTP site on my Win2k server to anyone, not to mention allowing the packets through the firewall. I was having problems with FTP access from my house so I opened both IIS write permission and the Firewall for testing purposes. Then I forgot to get back to them. In the mean time, from the logs I kept I found that many people tested the access to the FTP directory and I now have directories in there that I can't access. I have taken ownership of them as admin, butevery time I try to access them from the GUI or CL the task freezes. This means I can't delete them either. Help a DumbA$$...thanks

can't access directory in FTP directory

Have you tried stopping the IIS FTP service and then taking ownership, and after that try to remove them. Else past that, I would go into safemode, command prompt only, and **** those directories away manually. Just my 2 cents.

I already attempted that route.... sorry I did not mention it in my original posting. Common sense for a SysAdmin would be to shut down the services, take ownership, then attempt to repair, access, or delete the problem.
