Use FTP Hidden Segments to define the list of URL segments for which the FTP service will deny access and will not display in directory listings. For example, to prevent access to the Bin directory of your Web application, you could add the Bin directory as a hidden segment for your FTP site. When an FTP client logs in to your FTP site, the Bin folder will not be displayed in directory listings. If the FTP client attempts to change to the Bin folder, the FTP service will return an access denied error message to the FTP client.
