I have a device that has an in built FTP client which I'm using to get data from the FTP server but the client is unable to get the data from the FTP server. I have setup my home directory correctly that has the file to be fetched from
FTP1.JPG

but when the client makes the connection to the FTP server to get the data it fails

Command from Client

copy ftp://test:test123@10.100.0.54/C/backup/20198.bak backup
% Error happened. Failed to change directory (C/backup/20198.bak)

FileZilla Server exposes a virtual path structure only. The directory you configure as Home directory is /. The backup application needs to transfer to or from / (the root), a path C/backup doesn't exist in the server.

Physical path C:\Backup = Home directory = Virtual path /

Would this be the correct syntax copy ftp://test:test123@10.100.0.54/C/20198.bak backup

Take out the C/, it doesn't exist. Drive letters aren't exposed, only what you share.

If the file is directly under C:\backup ( / ), use

ftp://test:test123@10.100.0.54/20198.bak
