Hi BHW, I mess with websites all day long. Literally, writing code and transferring files to multiple hosting accounts constantly. Sometimes my tasks include uploading/downloading big folders for backup purposes or moving sites whatnot. The size of the folder is not the issue but the number of files is. So don't wanna get to technical but as some of you might know FTP needs to send a command for each file you upload/download and list the directory etc. each time. Assume you had a folder with 4000 files in it. What's the fastest way to transfer these files? Wish I knew this a long time ago - you just freaking compress them in cpanel file manager or your pc. That's right you just upload/download the zipped folder then decompress it. This method saved me hours and guess what I have been designing websites for years. I remember watching FileZilla/DreamWeaver for hours to complete uploading 5000 files... I hope this helps somebody! Cheers guys.
