Copy files from server using RDP
Posted by Yousef Ibrahim on 14 September 2011 02:52 PM


This article will help you how to copy any folder from your server to your local PC.

It is preferred to compress that folder by right clicking on this folder, then select “send to”, then select “compressed (zipped) folder”, this folder will be compressed at the same path.

You have 2 options to get this compressed file at your local PC:

  1. Copy this file from your server using RDP and paste it in your local PC "Not recommended" since it will hang your server if this file has a big size.
  2. We recommend using download feature from the server, since it is faster than copying and pasting the required file. You can do it by:

Find the following folder “wwwroot” at the following path:

C:\Inetpub\wwwroot

Every file saved at the previous path is able to be downloaded through any browser.

  •  Copy the compressed file from its path to this new path "C:\Inetpub\wwwroot”, so your file is ready to be downloaded any where you want simply by download it.
  • To download the required file, please use the following link

http://Your Server IP Address /filename.zip

For example if your IP Address is xx.xx.xx.xx and file name is File.zip, then the link should be "case sensitive":

http://xx.xx.xx.xx /File.zip

  • Write the correct link at your browser, then the file will be downloaded immediately, and then you can save it at your PC.

DELETE OR SECURE THIS FILE FROM THE SERVER (at wwwroot folder) AFTER DOWNLOADING IT, SINCE IT CAN BE DOWNLOADED FROM OTHER USERS.
