Title: File Transfer
Post by: pjals_but_noisy on Aug 22, 2021, 01:54 pm
How do I transfer the root of a computer to another?
I've tried Progdor2, BBPack, and just `pastebin put`ting them one by one, all of them got slightly corrupted/too big to upload.

I forget when the feature was added so it might depend on your version, but you should be able to put a computer in a disk drive and copy the files that way.

oh yeah, they are on different server, the one i want to transfer it to is on my controlled server, but the computer i want to transfer it from, is on my friends server and he doesnt want to give me the computers folder.

You could use Dropbox or similar, or even GitHub. I'm surprised that you are getting corruption and file size limits.

Ah, try encoding them as base64 before you upload. There should be a few encoders around any that are pure lua should work in CC even if they have been written for some other system.
