Download Entire Folder Structures Instead of Individual Files

Karla Marsh
EFT

THE INFORMATION IN THIS ARTICLE APPLIES TO:

  • EFT v7.4.11 and later

DISCUSSION

You can download entire folders in the WTC. The folder and its files and subfolders are downloaded as a ZIP file. The registry settings below set a maximum number of files/folders allowed in a ZIP file, and the number of ZIP files that can be created at the same time (in parallel).

EFT v8.0 and later store Advanced Properties in a JSON file. When you upgrade from EFT v7.4.x to EFT v8, the non-default settings that you have defined in the registry will be added to the Advanced Properties file during upgrade. (Default settings become part of the EFT configuration files.) For a more on how to use advanced properties, and a spreadsheet of the advanced properties, please refer to the "Advanced Properties" topic in the help for your version of EFT.

NOTE: Zipping folders to download applies only to physical folders, not virtual folders (Workspaces). Attempting to download a virtual folder will present an error to the user.

To specify maximum limits for number of parallel folder-zipping activity on the server and maximum number of files and subfolders in a zipped folder,

In EFT v8 and later:

Add the name:value pair to the AdvancedProperties.JSON file in EFT's \ProgramData\ directory as described in the "Advanced Properties" topic in the online help for your version of EFT.

{
"MaxParallelFolderZippers": 40,
"MaxSubItemsInZippedFolder": 32768
}

In versions prior to v8.0:

Create the following registry settings:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 7.4\

Set the maximum number of parallel folder zipping activity on the server:

Type: DWORD

Value name:MaxParallelFolderZippers

Default Value: 40

Restart Required: yes

Backup/Restore: yes

Set the maximum number of files/subfolders in a zipped folder:

Type: DWORD

Value name: MaxSubItemsInZippedFolder

Default Value: 32768

Restart Required: yes

Backup/Restore: yes
