The contents of current directory on your local computer are visible in
the Local View pane of the file transfer window. By default, Local View
displays the contents of your local home directory - usually your
Windows desktop. You can change the home directory on the Local
Favorites page of the Settings dialog. See Section
Defining Local Favorites.
Note: Files that are marked as hidden (i.e. not by default
displayed in Windows Explorer) can also be displayed in the
Local View pane if you have selected them to be shown on the Global
Settings, File Transfer page. The size of gigantic files (over 4
gigabytes) is not displayed correctly.
