You can filter the display of the files and folders in the My Files and Folders (the Local Filesystem) and Remote Server Files and Folders panes to display only the files that you want, by name, file type, size, and/or date modified to limit the display to specific files and folders.
By default, the WTC is designed to automatically filter the file list and display only the first 499 files and folders. Once that limit is reached, the WTC will prompt you to use filtering to find the files that you want.
Limiting the file list to 499 files helps to avoid performance issues when browsing folders that contain very large numbers of files and folders. Depending upon the size of the folder and the capabilities of the computer running the browser, performance of the system can degrade significantly.
On the EFT Server computer, EFT Server administrators can change the threshold at which this automatic filtering is enforced. For details, refer to the Knowledge Base article, http://kb.globalscape.com/article.aspx?id=10371, Automatic Filtering in the Web Transfer Client.
To filter the filesystem list
Click the Filter link in the upper right corner of the file list that you want to search. The Filter dialog box appears.
In the Filter files or folders named box, type the name and/or type of file, or leave the default of *.* to filter all files. For example:
To display only text files, type *.txt.
To display any file called abc with any file extension, type abc.*.
To display any files that start with a, type a*.*.
(Optional) In the Modified date area, click an option (on or before, on or after, between/and) and then specify to display only files that were modified on a particular date or date range. Do one of the following:
In the box next to the option you selected, type the date in the format MM/DD/YY.
Click the Calendar icon , then click a date on the calendar. Use the
left- and right-facing arrows to scroll between months.
Click the Calendar icon , then click Today to use today's date.
(Optional; however, you have to specify a date or date range if you want to specify the file size.) In the Size area, specify whether to display files that are at least or at most <n> KB. For example, if you specify at least 1 KB, the client will display any files that are more than 1 KB, but not less; if you filter for files that are at most 1 KB, the client will display any files that are up to 1 KB, but not more.
To apply the filter, click Filter, or click Cancel to close the dialog box.
To clear your filter and show all files, click the Filter link, then in the Filter dialog box, click Clear, then click Filter.
