Sending Files within Folders from Mobile Device to a Server

Post by plethaura » Fri Dec 02, 2011 3:07 pm

Suppose the following folder and file structure exists on the mobile device but not on the server :

Folder A
File 1.doc
File 2.pdf
Folder B
File 3.txt
File 4.mp4
Folder C
File 5.txt

The action, "Send Folder", for Folder A will create a partial directory structure on the server that includes only Folder A (the directory structure will NOT include Folder B and Folder C) but no files within the folders will be sent.
The action, "Send Folder", for Folder B will create a partial directory structure on the server that includes Folder B and its parent Folder A (the directory structure will NOT include Folder C) . Again no files within the folders will be sent.
Rule : The "Send Folder" action will create a directory structure on the server consisting of the sent folder plus all of its parent folders. No files are ever sent by the “Send Folder” action..
Why are no files sent? Because there might be 1,000 files and sending them all as the default action might consume an exorbitant amount of time and bandwidth. Use the "Select All" icon to send multiple files.

The action, "Send File", for File 5.txt will create a directory structure on the server for Folder C (plus both of its parent Folders B and C) and also create File 5.txt in Folder C. No other files will be sent to the server.
Rule : The "Send File" action will create a directory structure on the server consisting of the folder that contains the file that was sent to the server and all of that folder's parent folders plus the file that was sent to the server. No other files will be sent.
