How can you download a complete folder from the Web Client?

Postby ady199 » Thu Feb 09, 2012 7:10 pm

Can anyone please let me know how you can download a complete folder including its contents in one go?

I have click on the check box next to the folder I want to download and I right click and select download file and it just opens up the folder and lists the contents. If I check the box next to the folder I want to download and select batch download it opens up the batch download box but no files/folders are shown

Help - I want my users to have the ability to select a folder and have it download including files & sub-folders without having to select each one separately

Hi

You could just use the zip files action and then tick folder with sub-folders or files and the folder structure is honored inside the zip file. This will create a zip file on the site that can be downloaded by the user.
Just a thought - will need to check user perms on folders for zipping capability. I guess it would be nice to see a Jdownload equivalent of the Jupload!

We will consider to make a such plugin for the web client.

Yes, the transfer of whole folders is a problem for me too. I'm testing the latest version of WingFTP at the moment with a view to buying it, but my business involves the transfer of large projects with multiple sub-folders, so it is very restrictive. I've not tried zipping folders and files together yet, is that possible?

This is very important. Any timetable for this feature?
