The user has full read and write access to the FTP site but it can’t rename the file.

Edit the FTP share for that user to have “append” rights to the FTP location.

Edit the users default permissions of READ and WRITE on files on the directory to allow “APPEND”, which now allows the rename of the file to occur.
