When I drag a folder to the grid I get the dialog window to enter the email address, which I do. I next check the confirmation box. Next, I attempt to send, but I get a message that the program can't open the folder. The folder is a folder with a subbolder and in that subfolder are 7 files. The total size is 7 Mb. What am I doing wrong? Any advice would be appreciated.
Many magicVORTEX users have been asking how to send multiple files or an entire directory in one transmission.
What we have been recommending is to use a file compression tool like WinZip from WinZip Computing, Inc. to compress multiple files together into one file. Next, send the one file via magicVORTEX and expand it on the receiving side.
This technique has several benefits. 1. Your recipient will only receive one email notification message. 2. Your data will be compressed and take less time to transmit. 3. You can retain the directory structure if subfolders were included in the compressed file.
Make sure your recipient has the appropriate software to decompress your file. To download WinZip, visit http://www.winzip.com

Is transferring files taking up too much bandwidth when you're working on other things? By changing the Transfer Rate, you can throttle down the magicVORTEX application to save more speed for other activities.
