How do I use the file manager?

The File Manager lets you browse, create, and move folders and documents for your domain. Choose “File Manager” from the Domain Menu.

The “Show Folder Sizes” checkbox is not checked by default, but you can check this and click “Save” if you wish to see the contents. You can click on any folder to see its contents.

You can create a file by clicking the Create File icon - this will then bring up an editor within which you can create your file content, and then save it as a file type of your choice.  Once done, click “Save”, and then click “Back” to return to the main File Manager menu. You will see the file there, along with details about the last modified date, and its size.

Creating folders
You can create folders here as well. Simply click the Create New Folder icon then choose the folder name, and click the check mark button.

Renaming folders/files
To rename a folder/file, simply click the Rename Folder icon, then click the check mark button to save.

Editing files
To edit a file, simply click it in the list. It will then open in an editor and you can change it as necessary. Click “Save” to resave it.

Deleting folders/files
To delete files or folders, check the box next to them, then click the Delete icon.

Moving Folders/Files
 To move a file, check the box next to the item you want to move. Then either use the file browser icon next to the Destination Folder text box to choose where you want to move the file to, or simply type it in the text box. Now click the Move icon to move it to the selected destination.  You can then go to the destination folder, and see the file/folder has been moved there. 

Copying Folders/Files
 The Copy icon works exactly the same as the Move button, except that a copy of the file(s)/folder(s) are made in the Destination Folder whilst keeping the original file(s)/folder(s) in the same place.
