    Keep getting error when I am trying to load files.
    Fetch could not create the folder because the FTP server sent an unexpected response. Check the Fetch Transcript window for more information. Server responded: "Create directory operation failed."

    Hi,

    I would show that transcript to the FTP server administrator, specifically the lines:

    MKD CORPORATE
    550 Create directory operation failed.

    They might need to check the FTP server logs to figure out why that command is failing.

    Thanks,
