FTUserImpersonation use the current logged user, NOT the mslogon user.

FTUserImpersonation=1
FT only works when somebody is logged.
FT permission are local user
FT can copy/delete files with the permission of the desktop user
FT can acces shared folders

FTUserImpersonation=0
FT does not require a logon
FT is being done as "local system"
FT has full access, you can copy/delete files as you where administrator
FT has no access to network shares and special "current user folders"


Just know what you are doing before setting
FTUserImpersonation=0
