Probably don’t want to change defaults.  You have to find the folder you want 
it to go to for a given file.  Then if using the mac move the mouse cursor over 
the folder, then num pad 5 twice, then it will kick you into folder at that 
point.  Then option u to choose the file to upload if it is local.  If it’s 
already in the remote folder and you want to move it over, you have to find the 
file first, then command x to cut it, or alt x in windows, then go to the 
folder you want it to go to, then open it with the moving mouse cursor to that 
specific folder if on the mac then double num pad 5, and I think enter on a 
windows computer.  In your preferences it is probably checked to upload in open 
folder.  Your computer will say “loading”  which is the new folder becoming 
available.  There will be a place at least called comma at least.  Then do 
command v or alt v to paste it.  If it’s a large file it might take a few 
seconds, and the wizard may say loading again while it’s transferring, but it 
won’t take nearly as long as uploading from your local folder which is the 
computer.  Do not do deletes of files you see in your local folders, they will 
delete them from your computer and they are then gone.  Yes I did that so 
learned it the hard way.  Doesn’t do the normal trash dialog.  Any locals you 
want to delete do that outside of the wizard.  

Also don’t forget refresh is your friend because what you move may not show as 
being moved for a while until you hit refresh.  After you have moved a file, 
then go to previous folder in history and click that which will take you back 
to where you were, or click go to home which is your main remote folder.  

Here’s an example maybe.  

I create a folder in remote folder called books.  I have some James Paterson 
books.  Some are in the remote folder, but I have a new one on computer.  So I 
go to books in remote, move mouse cursor to VO cursor control option command 
f5.  Double click with num pad 5.  It says loading.  Scroll down with VO keys 
and down arrow of course, if it still says loading, then back out of 
interaction, then go right back in there.  At that point it should just say 
comma.  If so then back out again, and create a new folder called James 
patterson.  Then interact again and find that new folder, and move mouse cursor 
again to that point.  Double click that.  The wizard will say “loading” again.  
Once the comma is available, then do option u.  Files that I usually upload I 
store in the user folder, seems to upload out of there.  So in the dialog I set 
it to colom view which is how I prefer to view stuff anyway.  Then if the 
Patterson books that are local are in a folder I just go the right, and hold 
the shift down and arrow down, or do command a to select all once I am lined up 
on the list of books.  The back out of interaction and click okay.  Those books 
will start uploading, and they will be uploading directly into the James 
Paterson folder itself.  

Now back in the remote folders, click home folder.  Interact and find what 
Patterson books I already have in there.  Hold shift and arrow down however 
many times there are books, lets say there are 3 of them.  VO will likely tell 
you what you are scrolling and highlighting in your main folder, but just using 
arrows will not work in sub folders, you have to then use VO keys and arrows.  
Then command x to cut them.  then go find books and move mouse cursor over 
control option command f5.  Double click with num pad 5.  Then once loaded, go 
inside the books folder and find the Patterson folder, and then move mouse 
cursor to that point again, then double click num pad 5 again and once it says 
comma, past with command v.  It should be done within seconds.  Then back out 
and go home, or go back to books folder or where ever you wish to go.  Once the 
pathway is established in setting p an upload, it’s fixed.  You can back out 
and it will still go to the Paterson folder.  So you have filled a sub folder 
of a sub folder from two different sources.  You then don’t have as many things 
showing in the viewer of either your remote folder, or your books folder and 
that is a limit that sendsapce does have.  Over 1000 items showing and you are 
apt to get a warning.  

This is a long explanation, but they don’t make it overly easy, but at least it 
is now doable with a mac.  Maybe it has been for a long time, and nobody 
figured it out, but I accidentally stumbled right into it.  Couldn’t understand 
why it said “loading” so interacted in and discovered I was in a sub folder.  
So now am totally reorganizing my sendspace.  Am going to seriously put it to 
use now.  As if I didn’t before.  

Also if you get a folder link, just copy the link, which in Apple Mail just vo 
shift m and copy link is an option.  Then go to wizard, and interact into the 
first unknown.  Paste it into the blank.  then click add.  You will get an ad 
folder dialog of course, you can then choose to download the whole thing, or 
click navigate the folder.  At that point you are in their remote folder, not 
your own, and can get what files you want.  Also the double click of num pad 5 
will let you see into the sub folders, then get what you want and go back in 
history.  Once you have selected all you want to download, go back to home 
folder which will be your folder, your remote folder that is.  Wizard will keep 
downloading from their folder with no problem until it’s all done.  

Now if you have it set to put downloads in your downloads folder, and you say 
are downloading a file called, Audio-pals, you will see that file in 3 or more 
parts until the download is complete.  Then it will consolidate into just one 
file.  I tell you this incase you have never used the wizard.  

Now I suspect you will have about 10 more questions.  And maybe you are 
rethinking about sending that huge zip file up there, when you could with just 
a lift bit of work creat a whole layout in the wizard and have it just send up 
little .zip files instead.  Then if you get interrupted, it is more likely to 
remember and pick up where it left off.  If you upload a folder which you can 
do that, and it gets cut off before it’s done, you then have the folder showing 
up there in remote folder, but it isn’t complete.  It will also not likely 
resume if it was a folder upon restarting the wizard.  But a string of .zip 
files will.  And actually I think it maybe a little faster because the speeds 
are more accurate and usually stay up pretty fast most of the time if it’s a 
string of 50 small .zip files in the upload cue verses a big folder full of 

Okay this e-mail gives you an hour’s worth of reading, and probably about 24 
hours worth of confusion.
