Transferring files between computers is as easy as
selecting files and dragging them to the appropriate folder. Otherwise, use the
appropriate options on the File Manager toolbar.
Note: Drag-and-drop does not function when either the
host or client computers is a Mac. Use the toolbar buttons instead.
To access File Manager, click the File Manager icon on the
Computers page or on the LogMeIn left menu once
connected to the host.
Tip: Use the simplified File Manager toolbar to show only basic
file operations. You can change how the toolbar is displayed at any time in the
host preferences under
Preferences > General > Appearance
Use simplified File Manager.
Important: Directory symbolic links,
directory junctions, and file symbolic links
can not be transferred through File Manager.
Copy the selected file or folder from the
existing location to the selected new location. The copied file or folder is
now in both locations.
Cut a file or folder from the existing
location and move it to the new location. The moved file or folder is now only
in the new location.
Update the current folders to the client and host so that
their contents are the same. Files and folders that exist only on one side are
copied normally. If both folders contain one or more files that are different
on the client and host, the newer version will be copied that is the one with
the most recent modified date.
The folders must be open, not simply selected.
Files and folders that do not exist in the
destination folder are copied normally. Files that already exist in the
destination folder will be differentially transferred from the source folder.
If a destination folder contains a file or a folder that does not exist in the
it will be deleted from the destination.
This is very useful if you update the Source folder and want
to push those changes to the Destination.
