    I'd like to see a console enhancements for use when no directory access or screen sharing is available to an offsite server.

     

    Copy files to desktop:

    Some Corporate IT  balks at providing file-sharing access to FileMaker directories, but it is important to be able to download a backup or a clone to one's desktop. It would be nice to have this possible within the console.

     

    For recovery/rollback:

    Restore files from the server's backup file set from within console. Over slow WAN, directory downloading and then FMP uploading over on a slow connection can be time consuming if IT does not provide screen sharing access or a copy of FMP installed on the server.

     

    Archiving:

    Zip a folder from Backup and move to an Archive folder within the FMS folder.
