Last updated: 2021-08-05 17:44:49


    This document describes how to upload files from a local Windows computer to a Windows CVM using Microsoft Terminal Services Client (MSTSC).


    Make sure the Windows CVM can access the public network.



    This document takes a Windows 7 computer as an example. The procedure may vary slightly according to the operating system version.

    Obtaining a public IP

    Log in to the CVM console, navigate to the Instances page, and record the public IP of the CVM to which you want to upload files.

    Uploading files

    1. Press Windows + R on the local computer to open the Run window.
    2. In the Run pop-up window, enter mstsc, and click OK to open the Remote Desktop Connection dialog box.
    3. In the pop-up dialog box, enter the public IP address of the CVM and click Show Options.
    4. On the General tab, enter the CVM public IP address and username “Administrator”.
    5. Select the Local Resources tab and click More.
    6. In the Local devices and resources pop-up window, select the Drives module, check the local disk where the files to upload locate, and click OK.
    7. After the local configuration is complete, click Connect to log in to Windows CVM remotely.
    8. Select and click Computer on the Windows CVM, and you can see the local disk attached.

      This step uses a Tencent Cloud Windows CVM with Windows Server 2016 operating system as an example. The procedure may vary slightly according to the operating system version.

    9. Double click to open the attached local disk. Copy desired local files to another drive of the Windows CVM.
      For example, copy the file A from local disk (E) to the C drive of Windows CVM.

    Downloading files

    To download files from Windows CVM to your computer, you only need to copy desired files from the CVM to the attached local disk.
