Open Endpoint Manager > Click 'Devices' > 'Device List' > 'Device Management'

  • Endpoint Manager lets you browse files and folders on managed devices and transfer items between the remote and local computers.
     
  • You can also remotely create, rename, and delete unwanted files and folders on the remote endpoint.

There are two ways to transfer and manage files in endpoint manager:

The Remote Tools option

Prerequisite -  You need to add a remote tools section to the profile active on the target device. Please follow these steps if you haven’t done so already:

  • Click ‘Configuration Templates’ > ‘Profiles’ > click the name of the appropriate profile > Click ‘Add Profile Section’ > select ‘Remote Tools’.
     
  • Make sure all remote options are set to ‘ON’. Click ‘Save’ to apply the setting to the remote endpoint.
     
  • See this wiki if you need more help to add a remote tools section.

Open the 'File Explorer' interface

  • Login to ITarian
     
  • Click 'Applications' > 'Endpoint Manager'
     
  • Click 'Devices' > 'Device List'
  • Click the 'Device Management' tab in the top-menu
     
    • Select a company or a group to view just their devices

      OR
       
    • Select 'Show all' to view every device enrolled to EM
       
  • Select the Windows device you want to view
     
  • Click 'Remote Tools' > 'File Explorer'

  • Select user type – Choose the user account under which you want to remotely manage files on the target device.
     
  • Click 'Connect to Remote Host' to establish the connection.

A request message may be shown to the end-user if so configured:


 

  • You can configure these request messages in the 'Remote Tools' section to the profile active on the device. See this wiki if you need help with this. 
     
  • The file explorer interface opens once the connection is accepted:
     


 

  • Use the drop-down at the upper-right to choose a drive/partition on the remote device.
     
  • Folders and files, including hidden items, are shown in list view
     
  • Click the tree icon    at the top-left to change to the tree view.
     
  • You can browse to any path by double-clicking on a folder
