It allows you to define the parameters for a particular file transfer job and then integrate that job into a Static Queue that contains all your previously defined file transfers jobs. You can then easily mark the desired jobs from the Static Queue to the Interactive and start transferring them with a single click. The File Manager will automaticaly keep a History of all the transfers.
