  2. Delete

    Delete the User’s Home Directory
    – If you want to remove both the FTP account and files, check the Delete the User’s Home Directory option.
    Checking this option will remove the FTP account and all the files in the FTP account’s home directory (or folder).
    – If you want to remove the FTP account only, then leave the option unchecked.

    If you’re not sure what to do, then we strongly recommend you to
    uncheck Delete the User’s Home Directory.

    Use the Delete the User’s Home Directory with extreme caution. 
    If you select this option, the data included in the user’s FTP folder will be removed and will be unrecoverable.

    Click the Delete button.
