Hi Sara — do you have an example code for downloading and uploading (Windows) files through WiFi? I searched your examples and tutorials and don’t believe there is one.
Thanks greatly, Regards
Unfortunately, you’re right.
We don’t have any resources about that subject.
I use Simple FTP Server and Client for the esp8266/esp32 with SPIFFS and LittleFS support. Library allows upload and download files; both ESP32 LittleFS files and Windows files, to and from the ESP32 over WiFi.
FTP is used for webserver maintenance in my project and viewing files not publicly linked. Combined with FTP program “Filezilla”; file handling between Windows PC and ESP32 becomes easy!
Thank you so much William. I will certainly explore FTP as a method for file transfer.
As my files are on a SDFat device, I wonder what the use for SPIFFS or LittleFS are?
A file system in SRAM I believe is overkill. As one has random access to the structures, one can always implement a suitable and fast data structure. But for the SD drive, why not SDFat?
