Transferring files in the Copy Web tool


To copy files individually

  1. Select the file or files that you want to copy.

  2. Click the copy button between the Source Web Site and Remote Web Site lists, using the button that indicates what direction you want to copy. To copy the recent version of a file to the site with the older version, select the synchronize button.

    The status pane at the bottom of the window displays the results of the copy operation.

To copy all files at once

  1. From the Move files drop-down list, select All source web files to remote Web site or All remote Web files to source Web site.

  2. Click Copy Web Site.

    All files are copied, overwriting existing files, with the following exceptions:

    • An older version of a file is never copied over a newer version. Because of this, the two sites might not be identical, even after copying the entire site.

    • If the files being copied include a deleted file and the target still has a copy of the file, you are prompted to indicate whether you want to delete the file in the target site as well.

    • If the files being copied are changed in the target site, you are prompted to indicate whether you want to overwrite the file in the target site.
