Migrator allows you to quickly view a list of files hosted on any server.

  1. Choose a server on the left side of the screen.
  2. Click on “Files…” and a list of hosted files will appear. File system open
  3. Click on one or more files.
  4. Choose to save the files as a clone or a copy.
  5. Click “Download”.

Deleting a server from migrator

If you no longer need to monitor or migrate to/from a server, delete it from Migrator by choosing the server and clicking “Delete”. Note that this does not impact your server or the Otto installation. It only removes the server information from Migrator.
