Hello John,

Thank you for your message.

Please try switching to the "System" context in the Access menu in the File Transfer window as described here https://www.remoteutilities.com/support/docs/file-transfer/#access_menu and see if it resolves the issue.

Please let me know if the problem persists.

ok.  Thanks for the reply.  It did not work  at first, but after a few tries, I switched back to user, and then it worked, .  It also now works in either way.  Many Thanks,
