When I sign in to FileX, it brings me to a folder with no files in it. Where are my files?

Applies to
  • WorldShare Collection Manager
  • WorldShare Circulation
  • WorldShare Reports
  • Tipasa

You are currently in the home directory upon login, which corresponds to your new username. You will need to move up in the file directory to see the folders you are used to seeing. By double-clicking the folder above the one with your username, you will reach the root directory. From there, navigate to the /xfer folder. The folders within correspond to specific product areas.

Your SFTP client may also let you save a starting directory: for example, FileZilla lets you save a default remote directory under the Advanced tab of the Site Manager.
