FTP Voyager allows you to "move" files from your local computer to a remote computer or from a remote computer to your local computer. This feature is available in two different forms:

Moving Files with Drag and Drop
  • Start FTP Voyager.
  • Connect to your site by pressing the Connect button.
  • Select the file(s) you want to move.
  • Right mouse click and hold on the selection.
  • While holding the right button, drag and drop on the destination folder.
  • FTP Voyager will display a menu, allowing you to "Copy", "Move", or "Cancel". Select "Move".
  • FTP Voyager transfers the file(s) then deletes the source file(s) after completion.
Moving Files with a Menu Command
  • Start FTP Voyager.
  • Connect to your site by pressing the Connect button.
  • Select the file(s) you want to move.
  • Select the "File" menu option.
  • Select either "Move Up" or "Move Down".
  • FTP Voyager transfers the file(s) then deletes the source file(s) after completion.
CAUTION: FTP Voyager's Move operation copies the file(s) as you request, but then removes or deletes the file(s) from the source. After deletion they cannot be recovered from the original location.
