Transfer Selected Items
Begin transferring the currently selected items, or add them to the transfer queue if there are existing transfers in progress.
Stop the current operation immediately. Note that as we try to end operations gracefully, there might be a short delay as we wait for the server’s response.
Halt the transfer queue so that no new transfers will be started until the queue is resumed. Note that since FTP/SFTP/WebDAV/etc have no concept of “pause”, current transfers will be allowed to finish.
Compare the contents of the current local folder to the current remote folder, and transfer items between them so that the folder listings match.
Explicitly set the transfer mode used for transfers made via FTP or FTP over TLS/SSL.
- Auto: In auto mode, the transfer mode is chosen according to the item’s file extension. If the extension is found in the list of ASCII File Extensions in the Preferences, ASCII mode is used. If not, Binary is used.
- ASCII (Text): In ASCII mode, data is handled as 8-bit ASCII text. Some servers need to know this in order to add the correct line endings for locally storing the data as text.
- Binary: In binary mode, the raw data is transferred with no conversion of any kind.
