Let me briefly introduce it, probably, the functions that are often used


If you didn't find this feature, please update the version

  1. Refresh:The refresh we mentioned is not to use F5 to refresh the webpage, but use to refresh, so that the files that just uploaded to the network disk can be refreshed out

  2. New FileNew FolderRemove Empty FolderBatch Rename No explanations need

  3. Recursive Move:Move all the files in the current directory and all files in the subfolder to the designated folder

    • ⚠️ Dangerous operation, please use it with caution
  4. upload:What is the difference between the two uploads?

    1️⃣ stream directly puts the binary content of the file into the body, so that the backend can use very little memory, it seem to have no downsides.

    2️⃣ form is to wrap the file into formdata and upload it. The memory used by the backend will be more, but there is no limit on the size.

    • Choose to add as a task: you can see in the background task
