Session.PutFileToDirectory Method

Uploads one file from a local directory to a remote directory.

This is a convenient alternative to Session.PutFiles, when you want to upload only one specific file to a specific remote directory, keeping its original name.


public TransferEventArgs PutFileToDirectory(
    string localFilePath,
    string remoteDirectory,
    bool remove = false,
    TransferOptions options = null
Public Function PutFileToDirectory(
    localFilePath As String,
    remoteDirectory As String,
    Optional remove As Boolean = False,
    Optional options As TransferOptions = Nothing
) As TransferEventArgs


Name Description
string localFilePath Full path to the local file to upload.
string remoteDirectory Full path to the remote directory to upload the file to.
bool remove When set to true, deletes the source local file(s) after a successful transfer. Defaults to false.
TransferOptions options Transfer options. Defaults to null, what is equivalent to new TransferOptions().

Return Value



Exception Condition
InvalidOperationException Session is not opened.
Invalid combination of values of TransferOptions properties.
SessionLocalException Error communicating with

SessionRemoteException Session has failed.
Uploading of files has failed.
See the exception documentation for details.
TimeoutException Timeout waiting for to respond.


Event Session.FileTransferred is raised. Also raises Session.FileTransferProgress throughout the transfer.

Contrary to Session.PutFiles:

  • You do not specify a target name (or an operation mask) in the destination path (original names are preserved when uploading).
  • You do not need to make sure that the target directory path ends with a slash.
  • The method uploads files only. It throws when the source path points to a directory.
  • The method throws an exception on error automatically. No need to call OperationResultBase.Check.
