    This morning I noticed that when I FTP into any account that I can see the folder path all the way back to the root.

    What I mean is /root/home/account/public_html/

    I checked several other FTP accounts and although files are not visible in the /root/ the folders most certainly are.

    Any idea why this would happen?

    Logging into regular FTP as user, or as root or reseller logging in as user via SFTP?

    No Resellers, just standard hosting/user via SFTP
