File Manager

Any time you need to pick an image or a file in concrete5, we use the File Manager. You see it from various blocks when you need to pick/add assets and you can get to it from Dashboard > File Manager as well. The File Manager just manages assets you're going to use in your website, it's not an alternative to FTP or a way to put files on your server in specific directories. Instead the File Manager actually chooses where to put files on its own so it doesn't accidentally over-write anything, and it also creates records in your database about the assets so it can manage versions, permissions, and interesting meta data.
