What is the File Manager?

What is the File Manager?

The File Manager is used to transfer files and folders between your PC (local) and FTP Server (remote), or between two local folders.  File Manager displays the local and remote folder contents in an explorer-style interface and supports all standard file operations (copy, delete, rename and more).

Using File Manager to transfer files

You can open a File Manager window for your Quick Connect or Automated profile by right clicking on the profile and selecting Open File Manager.  While opening a File Manager, Auto FTP Manager will establish a connection in a new tab.  When the connection is established, you can start transferring files and folders.  Auto FTP Manager provides you with the powerful capability of opening more than one File Manager simultaneously.

File Manager Title

Title will display name of your PC User or FTP server, depending on the selected connection type.  If you have selected a PC folder location the title will display the name of your PC User.

File Manager Tabs

Easily know the File Manager status with the help of status band:

The Toolbar provides easy navigation options like Back, Forward, and Up.  It also contains frequently used file control operations like cut, copy, paste and more. 

Transfer Panel

The Transfer Panel provides a simple and easy way to transfer file from the left side to right side or vice versa.

Compare Folders: Click on the Compare folders button to automatically highlight the folders that are not present in both the sides of File Manager.

Status Bar

The Status Bar will display the number of files and folders present in the folder and the number of items selected.

List view

List View displays the files and folders present in the folder.  These will be listed similar to the way they are in Windows Explorer.  If no files and folders are present then the list view will be blank along with a banner message.
