Your best friend for file transfer.

The Parent Folder command takes you to the parent folder (enclosing folder) of the folder you're currently viewing, and updates the file list.

This command is available:

  • As the Parent Folder command in the Go menu
  • As the Parent button in the transfer window toolbar, if you've added it
  • By swiping up on laptop trackpads that support gestures

If you are at the root folder, the Parent Folder command will be disabled.

If you do not have permission to view the parent folder, you will receive an error when you choose the Parent Folder command.

You can drag files and folders to the Parent button in the toolbar to move them up one level to the parent folder of the current folder without having to open a new window or connection.

See the changing folders help topic for other ways to move between folders.
