Moving files between the host and target

The IDE's Target File System Navigator view lets you easily move files between your host and a filesystem residing on your target.

Note: If you haven't yet created a target project, you can do so from within the Target File System Navigator view, by right-clicking anywhere and selecting New QNX Target. For full instructions on defining the target connection properties, see Creating a QNX Target System Project.

Note that the Target File System Navigator view isn't part of the default QNX System Builder perspective; you must manually bring the view into your current perspective.

To see the Target File System Navigator view:

  1. From the main menu, select Window > Show View > Other….
  2. Expand QNX Targets, then double-click Target File System Navigator.

The view shows the target and directory tree in the left pane, and the contents of the selected directory in the right pane:

Note: If the view has only one pane, click the dropdown menu button () in the title bar, then select Show table. You can also customize the view by selecting Table Parameters or Show files in tree.
