There is no native ability within FM. I believe there is a technique that exports a zipped folder from a container field. However, plugins are your best best. Troi comes to mind. Troi File Manipulation plugin

Troi File is quite amazing, with many many features, incl. find/replace and real drag-and-drop ;)-! But it is also somewhat expensive. If you do not need all the bells and whistles, the free MooPlug can do many of them.

Hi Guys, I'm new to the forums and already loving it.

Here's a little contribution. It uses send event (as mentioned previously) and the cmd command interpreter. Since cmd is built into windows (windows NT and upwards if I recall correctly) it should work across all XP and Vista machines...

Maybe the solution can be improved as to show the actual available drive letters? I haven't looked at this in detail but have a feeling that it could be done natively...

bye :B
