File Manager allows you to securely store, manage and share files and every other format of digital media, including, documents, images, audio, video, publishing layouts, presentations and PDF files between you and your end users.
Once installed, you can setup in seconds and secure individual user accounts enabling your authorized users quick, and easy access to your documents. Access can be gained 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from anywhere in the world via an Internet Browser.

All uploaded documents can then be quickly located through the familiar folder structure or via the built in search facility.
Imagine how much more productive your company will be when your management team have access to centralized, up-to-the-minute information or when your sales representatives can share pricing structures, sales proposals or sales information across your regional locations in real time.
Whether you are in the office, or accessing documents from the other side of the world, you'll always have access to the most up-to-date information available.
Simple, User-Friendly Interface
The backbone of the File Manager has always been it's beautifully designed interface coupled with it's straightforward ergonomic controls.
However, it's not all about good looks. Underneath the skin, File Manager is an incredibly powerful system boasting many new features and improvements. Administration of your files has never been easier!
Securely Share Any Files With Anyone, Anywhere, 24/7
File Manager allows you to setup secure, individual user accounts, which once created allows your remote users to access their own private area within the File Manager, enabling them to view and download the documents and files you have made available to them.
Alternatively, using the File Manager's built in "Hotlink" function, you can upload your files and then generate an external hotlink URL. This function is ideal for posting pictures on eBay or in your Blog.
Add (Upload) And Remove (Download) Multiple Files
File Manager's built in upload function is split into two modes. When in the default "Upload" mode you can upload and store up to 10 files in one go and add an individual description against each file.
File Manager will show an upload progress bar when used on a Linux server which displays the uploading file size, file transfer progress % and transfer speed. When used on a windows server the upload window does not display the upload progress.
When in the "Flash Upload" mode you can now select multiple files, or the contents of whole folders and upload them onto the File Manager. The functions supports CTRL + A to select all files or by holding CTRL to then select multiple files. Included in the Flash Upload function is an upload progress bar which is available to users on all server types.
Downloading multiple files and folders is now also possible with the addition of the "Save to Zip" function which allows you to compress multiple files to .zip prior to downloading.
No File Size Transfer Limits
Unlike other File Management systems, File Manager supports large file transfers and does not impose any form of data transfer limits. File transfers are only limited by bandwidth and the servers disk space.
Easily Create Secure Multi-User Accounts With Individual Account Privileges
File Manager comes as standard with Client Manager. This powerful Client Management solution works with File Manager to allow you to easily manage all of your users from one central location. You can quickly create, secure new user accounts and set individual account permissions.
Specify which functions are available to which users, adjust user disk space quota, set account expiry date and configure which file types users are permitted to upload.
In User mode; users are only able to access the main directory folder that has been allocated to them (excluding Shared Folders). This folder can either be user specific or it can be the same folder used by other users. Users are never able to go up a level and access files and folders in other user accounts, only down a level into other sub-folders. However, although the user can be accessing the same folder used in some cases by more than one user, each users can have individual user rights to that folder e.g. allow download and preview, but disallow upload and delete. Any function not enabled for a particular user will see the corresponding function icon removed from the users taskbar.
Automatically send a customizable "Welcome Email" to every user account you create, providing important user login information.
Live Preview Files And Add Comments
File Manager has always supported the storage and distribution of every file type, but now it allows you to preview an incredible 124 of the most popular file formats live on your server. This allows you to quickly access and view your documents without the delay in saving each file to your desktop prior to viewing.
Group And Shared Folder Access
File Manager supports Shared Folder and Group access.
Easily setup and manage Groups of users with individual Shared folders. Shared folders automatically appear in the folder listings of each Group Users main account folder.
Shared folders can be assigned to multiple Groups and can also be setup to have individual rights (e.g. allow download, preview, hotlink, disallow upload and delete), based on the Groups they are assigned too. Groups can also be configured to have individual banned file formats, in addition, to the default banned file formats assigned to each user.
Email notification options can also be configured so that the Group Administrator can receive an automated email confirmation containing the File name(s) and description(s) of all files uploaded into the Shared folders assigned to the Groups.
Additionally, if the File Manager Administrator uploads files into a Group folder then all members of the Group will receive automated email confirmation notifying them that new files are available in the Shared folder.

This function allows you to attach non permanent notes or "comments" to any file or folder allowing you to easily share and communicate ideas to other users in relation to files or the contents of folders or just to keep a log of any changes made to the files by specific users.
You can also use Notes function to add Keywords or Tags to files or folders to allow users to locate them using the built in Search function.
