How to configure and use Direct File Transfer in Thinfinity® Remote Desktop 6.0

With Thinfinity Remote Desktop 6.0 we introduced an enhanced method for all file transfers. Features like Drag and Drop makes the entire process extremely easy and convenient. We simplified the way users interact with their local and remote files, providing the necessary tools for your user’s day to day activities.

To take advantage of all the features, the admin will need to install an executable component called Thinfinity® Remote Desktop WebBridgeWebBridge will enable the ability to Drag and Drop files straight from the browser. This component also will create a temporary Virtual Disk called “ThinDisk” that the users can alternatively use as the main directory to safely and easily transfer files from and to the remote machine.

In order to get this installer, please contact support@cybelesoft.com.

Now let’s jump into the installation process:

  • First-off, run the installer “Thinfinity_RDTools_v5.0_Setup_x64.exe”.

Bear in mind, Thinfinity® Remote Desktop WebBridge has to be installed on the Remote Desktop machine you wish to upload/download files to/from. The client computer does not require to install any plug-in or add-on.

How to Upload Files

There are 2 different ways you can upload a file to your remote desktop session:

After you drag a file into the browser, you will be prompted to save the file:

If you are working on a file that is stored in the “Thinfinity® WebBridge” drive and you update it, WebBridge will detect these changes and download the file again so you don’t lose any of your information.
