Transferring Files

With the XFTP client, you’ll be presented with an easy to understand dual-pane application. The left pane features your computer content. The right pane features your ExaVault account. 

Downloading is simple. Use the drag and drop functionality to grab a folder and drop it to your desktop. A progress readout shows up below in the transfers box. This lets you know how your file transfers are going.

You can select multiple files and folders to transfer. Then, expand the transfers box so you can see more of what’s going on. XFTP shows you the transfer process in real-time. 

Larger folders full of files may take a while to download. Expand the contents of the folders in the transfers box to check status or see where there is a holdup.
