We’ve created a custom plugin for cPanel that provides an alternate file manager interface (based on elFinder). It’s available to everyone, just look for this icon in the Files section of your cPanel interface.
elFinder provides an interface that is more like what you’d expect if you are used to using a Mac or PC.
It also allows you to do things like mount an external FTP account and drag and drop files.
It also allows you to browse the daily backups of your account, and restore files and folders.
