Differences from Windows Explorer

The file transfer window operates very much the same way as Windows Explorer. However, due to the different nature of handling files locally in your own computer (as per Windows Explorer) and handling them over a secured remote connection in the host computer (as per Tectia ConnectSecure file transfer), there are some differences in operation.

Deleting folders

It is not possible to delete a remote folder that is not empty. Delete the files and subfolders in the folder first.

Multiple paste operations

During copy and paste operations, the file names cannot be changed when the files are pasted. Therefore it is not possible to paste files several times into one location, creating multiple copies of the pasted files as in Windows Explorer.


The maximum size of transferred files is limited only by the file system. (On many systems the maximum file size is 2 gigabytes.)
