  • Hello Chris965,

    Please explain a bit about the following questions for better analyzation:
    1. Before the complete system restore, what issue did you meet?
    2. What is the whole error message of ‘invalid folder’?

    Do you mean that the you receive the error message when you try to add the ftp by adding a network location in Windows Explorer?

    Please take the following steps to troubleshooting:
    1. Open Internet Explorer and try to connect to the FTP by add the address in the Internet Explorer address bar
    2. Open Windows Explorer and check if we can connect to the FTP by typing ftp address in address bar.

    Please check the regedit key in the following thread about This FTP site cannot be viewed in Windows Explorer.

  • Hi,

    Have you tried Menu-> "View this site in Windows Explorer"

    Or, what if you add the ftp site in (my)Computer as a network location?

    Where is the server located, and does it shows any errors in the log
