How to Copy, Duplicate Files or Folders in FTP

If you are trying to copy a file or folder in your FTP client, you probably have found there are no options in your FTP client such as FileZilla to do so. Cutting or moving option is available, but not to copy or duplicate files and folders. Ouch! Don’t worry, downloading and the uploading back to a different directory is not the only option.

You can do this from C-Panel. Find your C-Panel login info (same place you created the ftp login account).

1. Log into your C-Panel.
2. Go into file manager.

3. Find the file or folder you want to duplicate.
4. Right-click and chose Copy.
