    Basic question

    4444Steve
      I just know I cannot see the forest because of all the trees, but I made a site folder and named it but I cannot find out how to open my site and down load my existing files. I am working on a new mac as well and when I click to open my site in Dreamweaver, the Mac does not let me specify the internet site. It keeps referring me to the local hard drive. My vista pc corrupted my files so I need to download my site to work on it.

      and thank you for your patience

          Please don't repost an unanswered question with a slightly different
          subject.

            Define a new site-
            Make sure it is a "site" and not an RDS connection.

            set the local folder to a new empty folder on your machine.

            enter the remote server information.
            Open the Files Panel, change to remote files view, and connect.

            Are the remote files showing? Or are they in a subfolder with a name like
            htdocs or public_html or www? If in a subfolder, put that folder name into
            the "host directory" line of the remote info.

            connect to remote again.
            Select all the remote files and Get them.
