After you choose this option, the File Transfer Wizard will pop up. This is your user interface between the remote system and your computer. The picture below shows what the File Transfer Wizard looks like:
The Current Remote and Local Directory are the filepaths of the current highlighted folder. If you want to transfer a file to your computer, then you would highlight the file under Current Remote Directory and choose the drive on your computer under Current Local Directory and hit the To Local button. You would hit the To Remote to do the opposite (change the directories and file paths first though). You can also add folders by hitting the button called New Folder to the right of the directory you want it to be in. The folders need to already exist if you want to programmatically write to them in LabVIEW. See Related Links for more details.
You can access the U: drive from this window; however, you will not be able browse to it. To access the U: drive, type /U:/ in Current Remote Directory as shown below. The contents of the external USB drive will then appear and you can then browse through the files on the drive.
The following examples use drive letter D:, and illustrate how to FTP to the CF. Replace IP Address with the IP address or DNS name of the RT system.
Note: The RT operating system supports names that follow the 8.3 (filename.ext) convention. File names must conform to this convention including the following restrictions.
Caution: Do not remove or insert external storage media in hazardous locations while the system is powered (do not hot swap in hazlocs). Do not remove external storage media while the system is writing or reading from the media.
