Files

The Files tab allows you to add/edit shared files or folders properties. Here you can upload new files to the specified root folder and create folders.

 

The possibility to toggle between the Downloads root and the Briefcase root folders has been added on this screen. This will permit users to upload/edit files or to create/edit folders in the either one of the root folders.

Note:
  • Files can also be added via an FTP client (uploaded directly within the configured RSFiles! download folder). To synchronize RSFiles! with the FTP added files, simply use the Synchronize button located on the top-right corner. Filenames should only incorporate ASCII characters.
  • If you upload a file that has the same name, you can choose to override it. This can be applied for both front-end and back-end areas. Newly added files will be marked with a New icon.

The property area for folders is divided into two tabs: General and Permissions. To access is, check a folder (using the checkbox to its left) and click on Edit.

Mirrors

Allows you to add mirror downloads for the file in question.

You can now assign these screenshots from RSMediaGallery! to files by selecting one or more tags in the RSMediaGallery! Integration section of the Screenshots tab.

 

RSFiles! also incorporates a Reports feature. In the back-end listing view, each file has a separate link that will display the reports.

 
Bookmarks

Multiple file downloads could prove handy when dealing with multiple files. Basically this will act as a shopping cart, in terms that you can select multiple file and perform a single download action instead of downloading each file separately. This has been incorporated in the Bookmark option.
