File Manager

The file manager displays two views to allow easy selection of directories to copy or move files from. Each view lists the files of the specified directory in order. This is ASCII ordering so all entries starting with upper case characters “A” through “Z” are listed before entries starting with lower case characters “a” through “z”.

USB Storage

The file manager will automatically mount USB storage devices formatted with the FAT file system. The mount operation occurs when the path /mnt/fl1 … /mnt/fl4 is selected. The USB flash should be inserted prior to entering the directory /mnt/fl1. It is recommended to exit the /mnt/fl1 directory before removing the USB storage device. The first USB storage device inserted will be /mnt/fl1 without regard to the USB slot used. If a second USB storage device is inserted without removing the first it will mount as /mnt/fl2.

Network File Share (NFS)

The file manager will prompt to login to a network file share when the directory /mnt/nfs is selected.

The previously used NFS IP address and path will appear. Press ENTER to accept the previous settings to mount again or change the settings and press ENTER.

If the /mnt/nfs is already mounted (determined by reading /proc/mounts) the file manager will not prompt to connect to the network file share.
