How to upload a file?

A resumable file upload

To upload a file from a browser, you need to know the exact name of the file you want to upload and where it is located on your computer. The simplest way to upload a fil from a browser is to drag it into the main window and drop it.

A better way to upload files

When you want to upload a file, you’re probably going to use FTP or SFTP. And while both are fine options, one of them is definitely better than the other. When you’re using SFTP, your connection is encrypted. So it’s more secure than FTP, which doesn’t encrypt your data. And if you’re using SSH, it means that you don’t even have to open an extra port on your server. That makes it easier and faster to set up and use. So if you want something that’s easy to use and secure, then SFTP is the way to go. But if speed is more important than security, then FTP is probably what you need.

A resumable file upload

A resumable file upload is a method of uploading files from the browser on your computer. The files are saved, but if the user is disconnected or it takes too long to save, the file can be saved again. This allows for more files to be uploaded before the connection is lost.

There is no limit to how many times a resumable upload can be retried. However, you should make sure that you don't exceed the upload limits in place for your server and client.

A resumable file upload will automatically resume the transfer of the file after the first successful upload. You can set a maximum number of attempts when attempting to upload a file as well. This can be useful if you need to allow a certain amount of time for your Internet connection to settle before attempting to download the file again.

FileZilla does not currently have a resumable file upload feature so you will need another client like Total Commander or Windows Explorer if you need this functionality. However, there are many third-party programs that can do this such as EaseUS Todo Backup.

You should also ensure that your computer has enough free space on its hard drive before attempting an upload in order to avoid any issues with running out of space during the process.
