File Manager allows you to view and manipulate files on the server through an HTML interface. When you first load the File manager (also known as Filemin), contents of the root directory on your ESET PROTECT VA will be shown, depending on which user you are logged in as.

Navigation within the directory structure is simple, click the directory name or its icon (folder). You will see current directory at the upper left part of the Filemin window, click any part of the path to show contents of that specific directory.

The Filemin can also be used to search for files, click Tools in the toolbar (at the upper right corner of the Filemin window), select Search, and type a search pattern to look for.

If you want to download a file from your ESET PROTECT VA to the computer your web browser is running on, just click the filename or its icon.

If you want to upload a file from the computer your web browser is running on, click File then Upload to current directory. This will open a dialog window, click the paperclip icon to browse for file(s) you want to upload. You can select multiple files and upload them by clicking the Upload button.
