Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

How is it possible to programmatically save a data file to an FTP site?

I have looked at this a lot and really can not find a way of doing it yet. I am sure someone out there can advise me of a better way of approaching this.

It seems that FtpWebClient is not available under Unity so it is a bit difficult to send datafiles to an FTP site. I am not clever enough to see a way around this. Also GoogleDrive seems elusive as the sample given from https://github.com/midworld/unity-googledrive
appears not to work for the PC. The link for PC and IOS in this document leads nowhere. Of course I have looked at OneDrive too (the much preferred option for HoloLens) and I did not find an solution there either.

What I want to do is program some c# code with the correct ID and credentials to send a file to another place during using the Hololens. The idea is to have it commanded by voice and not have any had gestures associated with it. I would take any solution - OneDrive/GoogleDrive/FTP/Amazon I don;'t mind as long as it is independent storage for my data,

Please tell me if there is a way to do this.
Many thanks.

    Thanks Dwight, I'll give that a try (if I can work out how to do it).
