Download Entire Folder Structures Instead of Individual Files


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).

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, 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
