How to Transfer Files Using FileZilla/FileZilla Pro

FileZilla/FileZilla Pro copies files from one location to another using the Transfer Queue. This holds a list of all files to be transferred. There are a few different ways that you can mark files for transfer:

Drag and drop

  1. Select the files that you want to transfer. Use the SHIFT key to select a block of files; use the CTRL key (Windows) or CMD key (MacOS) to select multiple non-sequential files.
  2. Use your mouse to click and drag the selected files into the desired directory on the other site.

FileZilla/FileZilla Pro will add these files to the Transfer Queue and start the transfer immediately.

Select and add to queue

  1. Select the files that you want to transfer. Use the SHIFT key to select a block of files; use the CTRL key (Windows) or CMD key (MacOS) to select multiple non-sequential files.
  2. Right-click (Windows) or CTRL-click (MacOS) on the selected files and click on Add files to queue.

FileZilla/FileZilla Pro will add these files to the Transfer Queue, but not start the transfer.
