Basic tasks

Working with files

To download files right-click them and select “Download” from the contextual menu.

If you select multiple files or a folder, the selected files will be included in one Zip archive.

To download multiple files and folders from different locations at the same time, right-click one of the files or folders and select the “Add to cart” option, under “Download”. Once the download cart is open, you can add more items to it by drag&drop.

To upload files simply use the “NEW” button and then select “File upload” to start selecting files from your computer.

When using modern browsers, just drag files or folders from your computer’s file explorer to the browser, dropping them over the file list area. They will start transferring right away from your computer to the server.

You can simply take a screenshot of your desktop or an app using the “Print Screen” keyboard button and then paste it to Web File Share (using the usual keyboard combo). The screenshot will be uploaded and you will receive a web link to it from Web File Share.

Using Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge you can upload folders by using the “Folder upload” option available under the “NEW” button, or by drag&drop.

You can upload folders also by zipping the folder on your computer, uploading the zip archive and unzip the archive on the server once it is uploaded. This will reproduce the entire folder structure on the server.

  1. Right-click the file and select “Rename” from the contextual menu.

To copy one or multiple files to another folder follow these steps:

  1. Select one file, or multiple files by holding the CTRL key pressed.
  2. Click the “Copy” option from the contextual menu.
  3. Right-click the target folder from the left tree menu and select “Paste copied files”.
  4. The files list will automatically reload to show the changes.

To Zip one or multiple files follow these steps:
