Web-Based File Manager

Turn your web site into a web file server in few minutes.
  • Share files with your clients or staff on your web site.
  • Store your confidential files on your own server and have full control over them.
  • Enable your users to securely access, upload and organize documents from anywhere with only a web browser.
  • Preview documents (50+ file formats, including PDF & Microsoft Office), images, audios and videos.

Stunning and Intuitive User Interface

The file manager looks and feels like Windows File Explorer and follows user interface guidelines. Let your users easily manage their files with the comfortable and intuitive approach already known from the daily desktop working environment and minimize user learning curve.

Actions are both represented on the ribbon (top) toolbar and in the context menus and they are automatically disabled/hidden when not available e.g. when corresponding permissions are not granted. This way users will only see the actions that are available to them and they will not be confused.

Navigation (folders) pane allows fast hierarchy browsing and breadcrumb navigation bar allows users to keep track of their location and to drill down folders easily.

Folder contents are displayed via a multi-view which supports 6 different view layouts: Extra large icons, Large icons, Medium icons, Small icons, Details and Tiles. Thumbnails for all common image and video files are displayed. For all other file types, high-res icons are displayed.

View Any Document Anywhere

Advanced Document Viewer can open and display (read-only) wide range of document file formats:

  • Microsoft Word
  • Microsoft Excel
  • Microsoft PowerPoint
  • Microsoft Visio
  • Microsoft Outlook
  • OpenDocument Formats
  • AutoCAD (R13) Drawing
  • PDF
  • XPS
  • and more...

Your users don't need to have an application (eg. Microsoft Office) on their computer to be able to view these documents.

The Document Viewer supports High Resolution. Text, fonts and vector elements are preserved and rendered in high-res with no rasterization. Zoom in as much as you want, your documents will look great and same as they do in the program that created them.

Play Video and Audio Files

Media Player can open and play all common video formats:

  • MP4, M4V
  • F4V
  • MOV
  • FLV
  • WEBM
  • OGV
  • and on some browsers MP4V, 3G2, 3GP, MKV

and all common audio formats:

  • MP3
  • AAC
  • M4A
  • F4A
  • OGG, OGA

Media Player will first try Html5 video feature of the browser and if not supported it will try Flash mode. If a media format is not playable at all on the browser, media player will prompt the user to try opening the file directly on his computer/device so you automatically have a streaming media server.

Play Video and Audio Files

View Image Files

Image Viewer can display all common image formats including Photoshop:

  • Jpeg
  • Png
  • Gif
  • WebP
  • Bmp
  • Tiff
  • Tga
  • Psd

Image Viewer supports zooming, panning, rotating and flipping. Transparent images will be displayed with a nice background pattern to differentiate them from images with solid color backgrounds.

Browse Archive Files

The contents of all common archive formats can be browsed just like regular folders:

  • ZIP
  • 7Z
  • RAR
  • TAR
  • GZ
  • TAR.GZ (TGZ)
  • TAR.BZ2 (TBZ, TBZ2)

This is similar to "Compressed Folders" in Windows Explorer but for all archive formats not just for zip format. In addition, it supports displaying thumbnails while in archive and supports browsing nested archive files so it's more advanced than Windows Explorer's feature.

The zip files can be modified but other formats are read-only. For example, you can directly upload into zip files and download files directly from all archive files.

Browse Archive Files

Advanced Uploads

Upload multiple files at once. Upload files by dragging and dropping them from your computer. Upload files of unlimited size (e.g. a 10 GB huge file).

Advanced Uploads

Advanced Downloads

Download multiple files or even whole folders at once. When downloading a single file, pausing/resuming in the browser is possible so interrupted downloads can be completed. Download files of unlimited size (e.g. a 10 GB huge file).

Advanced Downloads

Decide Where You Store Files

Store your files on the local server or on the network without changing your existing folder structures. Create root folders which point to existing paths and start serving files immediately.

You can define 2 types of root folders:

  • Physical root folder which can point to one of the following:
    • A local path, e.g. d:\files
    • A network path (UNC), e.g. \\server\share
    • An application-relative path, e.g. ~/App_Data/RootFolder1
    • A virtual path, e.g. /webfolder/test
  • Amazon S3 root folder which points to a bucket

It's possible to connect to network folders or secured local folders via specific credentials or already authenticated Windows users.

Dynamic root folders can be created by using the predefined variables {User}, {Domain} and {UserWithDomain}. For example, you can create a root folder named "{User}'s home folder" with location "D:\AllUsers\{User}" and when a user named Joe logs in he will see a root folder named "Joe's home folder" which shows the contents of "D:\AllUsers\Joe"

Decide Where You Store Files

Share Files with Access Control

I have reviewed and tested a number of web based file management software. There is not one that comes close to how easy it is to use and how all functionality works properly and fast. On top of a great software the support is great, they don't run from a technical issue but rather address it, own it, and resolve it.

We've been using FileVista now for about 3 months and it's perfect. We're always managing large files and need ways to transfer them to and from customers. FileVista was exactly what we needed. It's easy to administrate, easy to use and our customers love it. Without having to download or install any software on the customer's end, they can just click and upload. After spending years messing with FTP clients and servers, this is truly a wonderful alternative.

Best web-based file sharing software around. The technical support is efficient and friendly. They are constantly updating the software with useful features. It's a joy to use every day for both me and the colleagues!
