Folder upload/download

Post by impact »

It would be very useful to have the ability to upload/download folders. I think it's a must have feature for a FTP server and we receive many requests about it from our users.

Are you planning to implement this feature?

Thank you

Previously you can use Java applet plugins to download/upload folders, but now web browser doesn't support Java applet any more, and there is no other method to implement it (maybe Google Chrome supports uploading one folder).

It's a pity because as I said before I think it's a "must have" feature and I know the other FTP servers can do that.

Thanks anyway

If you mean the FTP/SFTP protocol, then you can download/upload a folder with FTP client software. If you mean the web client (HTTP protocol), then other server software can't download a folder too.

I don't know if there are servers that allow to download a folder as is but I know for sure that there are server that permit to download a folder automatically zipping it, may be this could be a suggestion
But anyway I didn't want to make a flame but only that it's a pity a wonderful product like wing FTP couldn't have a feature like that.

The new version 6.5.2 has been released, it added a Google Chrome extension "Wing Download Manager":

This extension can be used to download multiple files/folders in the web client.
