We suggest creating a new directory/folder specifically for this.
Next, make sure to check all the checkboxes on the right of the list once you have selected your directory.
Click OK - you can now close out of FileZilla, though its helpful to leave it running to see any error massages that come up, for example, if you enter an incorrect username and password...
