What is a File Manager? Just how much does it differ from its desktop equivalent?
A File Manager software tool is available in all hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it's used to command the files in an account and all File Managers support a range of primary functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels can offer more complex features also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files could be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is used much more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to manage your online presence altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is tough to use can make it more annoying and difficult for you to handle your site content, specifically if you don't have previous experience.
