I can see now that uploading turns file names into hex addresses - but if my main use of the SN is for archiving TBs of files, how do you find a file for restoring / downloading? - do you need to keep the log from the uploading so you have the hex address?
I was sort of thinking like Google Docs, where you could browse to the file you wanted and then select it for downloading . .
This will all get GUIed away soon I’m guessing.
There is still no way to upload a directory tree and then retreive it. Likewise registers. last time I looked they were write-only.
I expect these issues to get fixed very soon in the CLI
For now there’s just a flat text file, probably in
~/.local/share/safe/client/ which lists the name and xor address of each file you have uploaded.
The uploads are stored in a file called
uploaded_files in your client directory
which you can find in the platform specific location:
safe files download without any specific file passed will automatically try and retrieve all files therein.
