FileMancer is a free utility from MollieSoft that creates a personal website on your computer allowing you to download your files through any web browser, on any device!
Use FileMancer on an iPad/iPhone to easily load e-books from your PC into iBooks without using USB cables or iTunes. Works on Android devices too!
There is no complicated Windows IIS (Internet Information Services) setup involved! (FileMancer does not even use IIS.) All the details of creating and running a website are handled transparently inside FileMancer for you. All you have to do is run FileMancer on your Windows computer, create a user, then log in on any device through any web browser.
No Windows network share is required. Your files are accessible through a web browser, and only to users with a valid login.
Create any number of separate users, each with his/her own files and settings. For each user, you have complete control over which file types and folders are visible through the website.
By default, the FileMancer website is only visible within your local router; if desired, you can open a router port to access your files from anywhere on the internet.
Sounds nice, but why can't I just use a Windows shared folder to transfer files instead? Because Windows shared folders are not visible on an iPad/iPhone without installing special apps. and shared folders cannot be filtered by file types or file names; FileMancer allows you to filter which files are visible on the website.
