I want to limit an account to a home directory. I am unaware how to do so. Once I connect it displays root access to the drive and I dont want that.

Mac mini, OS X Server

    sftp should bring up the login directory for the specified user.   (It should not normally be the root directory, unless you're logging in as root or a user configured to use /)  By default, you can cd and move around where ever you have the permissions to access; it's an ssh session into the host.
