Other Websend Features

Create/Delete Folders

In addition to uploading and downloading files, you can also use WebSend to create and delete folders on both your FTP site and on your local PC. To create a new folder on the FTP site, highlight the three dots (...) at the top of the file list in your root directory. Click on Make Dir, then enter a name for the new folder and click OK. The new folder name will appear in the right pane of the WebSend window preceded by a small square. To create a new subfolder within an existing folder on your FTP site, double-click on the appropriate existing folder name, highlight the three dots at the top of the file list, and create a new folder as described above.

To create a new folder on the root drive of your local PC, in the left pane of the WebSend window highlight the three dots (...) at the top of the list of files and folders, then click on Make Dir, enter a folder name and click OK. To create a new subfolder inside an existing folder on your PC, double-click on the appropriate folder in the left pane of the WebSend window, highlight the three dots (...) at the top of the file list, and create a new folder as described above.

To delete a folder on either your local PC or on your FTP site, simply highlight the folder name and click on Delete. You cannot delete a folder if it contains files or subfolders. You must delete any files or subfolders first before you can delete a folder.


Delete Files

To delete files from a folder on either your PC or your FTP site, simply highlight the filename and click on Delete. As a safety measure, you can only delete one file at a time.


Cut/Paste

The WebSend program allows you to move a file from folder to folder on either your PC or your FTP site using Cut and Paste. On the FTP site, you can use this feature to move a file from the root directory to a subfolder, or from one subfolder to another, or from a subfolder to the root directory. Simply highlight the name of the file you wish to move and click on Cut, then navigate to the subfolder or root directory where you want to move the file to and click on Paste. (To move back up to the next folder level, double-click on the three dots (...) which are located at the top of every list of files and folders.) When you Cut a file, the filename will still appear in the file list until you navigate out of that folder; the next time you open that folder the file list will be updated to show that you have moved the file.

Please note that the Cut and Paste feature can only be used to move files around on the FTP site or on your local PC, but not to move files from one to the other. Use Upload and Download to move files from your PC to the FTP site or vice versa.


Timing Out

Most FTP sites are configured to automatically disconnect users after a few minutes of inactivity. If you attempt to upload or download a file after a period of inactivity and nothing happens, simply click on Disconnect, then click on Connect again to log back in to the FTP site.
