FTP with External Hard Drive


Today I formatted a 250GB external hard drive in ext3, and mounted it under /home/share/External_Drive_250GB. I have the setgid bit so that all files/folders below share automatically fall under the group "share", and the permissions look like this:
Code:
drwxrws--- 6 root      share      4096 2012-04-13 00:18 ./
drwxr-xr-x 9 root      root       4096 2012-04-12 23:02 ../
drwxrws--- 2 shimdidly share      4096 2012-04-13 00:18 External_Drive_250GB/
drwxrws--- 2 shimdidly share      4096 2012-04-08 23:48 funny pictures/
drwxrws--- 2 har1      share      4096 2012-04-13 00:18 ian/
-rw-rw---- 1 shakira   share     26932 2012-04-12 23:06 PHP Cheat Sheet.odt
Clearly, Shimdidly has more than enough permission to move files into External_Drive_250GB, right? In SSH, yes. In FTP, partially. I can move files from my local machine directly into the external hard drive, but not files on the server to the external drive. Here's the funny thing, I can move files to and from any other folder through FTP, including "funny pictures", yet for some reason, FTP won't let me move files from the server to external drive. Strangest thing.

I'm using:
Ubuntu Server 11-10
vsftpd
Filezilla
