    Default Re: Managing files in WinSCP

    The purpose of this tutorial is to teach you how to manage files and folders using the FTP program WinSCP. We will assume that you have WinSCP running on your computer, and are connected to a remote server at this time.

    Now let's create a new folder (or directory) on the remote server. In the list of actions below the windows, click on F7 Create Directory. This opens a small Create folder window. In the box, type the name of the new folder, and then click OK. Your folder is now created, and you can see it in the list of folders in the remote server window on the right hand side. To rename a folder, select the folder to be renamed and highlight it. In the menu at the bottom of the windows, click on F2 Rename. Type the new name in place of the old name. The folder is now renamed. Files can also be renamed the same way.

    To Delete a file, first click on the file name and highlight it. In the list of actions at the bottom, Click on F8 Delete. The file is now deleted.

    The next thing to manage is permissions. To change permissions, select a file, and make sure it is highlighted. From the menu at the bottom, find and click on F9 Properties. This opens a window that shows the current permissions assigned to that file. To change permissions, simply enter a check mark in the appropriate box. The Groups are Owner, Group, and Others(World), and the permissions allowed are read, write and execute. You need to decide how much freedom others should have to act upon your file. After you have checked the boxes you wish to mark, click on OK, and the permissions have been successfully changed.

    This is the end of the tutorial. You know how to manage files and folders in WinSCP, including creating new folders, renaming them, deleting them, and changing permissions.
