What precisely is a File Manager? How much does it differ from its desktop equivalent?
A File Manager tool is found in all hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it is employed to control the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of primary functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Some Control Panels could provide you with more complex functions as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files could be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is employed a lot more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to manage your presence online in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's not easy to use can make it more annoying and difficult for you to handle the site content, specifically if you don't have previous experience.
