Operations with Directories

Making Directories

You may create a directory on the FTP server or on one of your local drives. Use this option to create a new folder in the directory that is being displayed in the active panel. The remote option is only available if a server connection is active. Your user permissions must include the right to create directories.

To create a directory:

  1. Navigate through either the local or remote directories to locate a directory of your interest where you wish to create a new one.

  2. From within the Server menu, choose the New Folder item. The edit field will appear with the default folder name highlighted.

    Also, you can create a remote directory by pressing the right mouse button on the empty space inside the Remote files tab and choose New Folder in the drop-down menu.

  3. Enter a new name for the folder in the field, using standard Microsoft Windows' techniques.

Removing Directories

You may remove a directory on the FTP server or on one of your local drives. You can delete a file directory only if it is empty. Removing a directory on the FTP server is only available if a server connection is active. Your user permissions must include the right to remove directories.

To remove a directory:

  1. Navigate through either the local or remote directories to locate a directory of your interest.

  2. Select the directory or folder you wish to remove.

  3. From within the Server menu, choose the Remove Folder item. The highlighted directory will be removed without any confirmation (if empty).

Copying Directories

You may copy a directory from your PC onto the FTP server, or from the FTP server to your local drives. The remote option is only available if a server connection is active. Your user permissions must include the right to create directories.

You can copy a full sub-tree structure (all files with all subdirectories) or the first-level files only.

To copy a directory:

  1. Navigate through either the local or remote directories to locate a directory of your interest.

  2. Verify that the transfer options be configured appropriately.

  3. From within the Server menu, choose the Copy Directory item. A dialog box will appear on your screen prompting you to specify a destination directory and a mode of operation.

  4. Specify the destination directory if it differs from the current one.

  5. Check the Include Subdirectories check box if you need. If checked, this check box enables copying the selected directory sub-tree and all files from all subdirectories. Otherwise, only the selected directory and its files will be copied.

  6. Click the Copy button to begin copying, or Cancel to cancel the operation.
