Use File Manager to upload and host your website's assets on HubSpot. (Or, to be specific, on HubSpot's content delivery network servers.) Just as with other file systems, HubSpot's File Manager gives you the ability to create folders or directories and then add files to those directories.
This article walks you through how to upload and organize the files in your account's File Manager.
1. Go to your File Manager
Navigate to Content > Content Settings.
Click on the File Manager link unter Content tools.
2. Create folders to organize your files
Once you are in your File Manager, you'll want to create some folders to organize your content. If you use HubSpot's classic CMS, you'll already see the folders and contents of your classic file manager in this tool, but if not you'll probably want to create some folders to organize assets such as images, audio, documents, ebooks, or executables into their own folders.
You can create a new folder by clicking on the button with a folder icon and plus sign next to Upload files...
Make sure you give your folder a name, so you can find it later. Then click on Create.
3. Upload files to a folder
Now you can open a folder you've created just by clicking on its name.
There are two ways to upload files:
- Click on Upload Files to browse your computer's hard drive for files to upload.
- Drag the files from your hard drive to the dotted square.

Other features of File Manager
Here's a short list of other handy features of the File Manager that you might need on your quest to organize all the things.
Viewing files in the File Manager
File Manager has two views: list view and grid view.
Click on the List View icon to view the contents of File Manager as a list.
Click on the grid view icon to view the contents of File Manager in a grid, with adorable little icons.
Get the URL for a file in your File Manager
You can grab the URL for a file in your File Manager by clicking on the gear icon next to the file name in question and then clicking on Get file URL.
Even better, you can grab a link to that file from a specific custom domain that you've connected to your HubSpot account.
Replace files in the File Manager
You can replace a file in your File Manager by clicking on the gear icon next to the file name in question and then clicking on Replace.
Note that you can only replace one file with another file that is of the same type. So if you are replacing a .png file, you can only replace it with another .png file.
Move files in the File Manager
You can move a file in your file manager by clicking on the gear icon next to a file name and then clicking on Move.
Choose the folder that you want to move the file to and then click the Move button to finish moving the file.
Archive files in your file manager
If you want to hide a file from appearing in your file manager, but not delete it permanently, click on the gear icon next to a file name and then click on Archive.
To see a list of your archived files, you can use the drop-down menu at the top of File Manager to view Archived files.
Delete files from your File Manager
You can permanently delete a file from your File Manager by clicking on the gear icon next to a file name and then clicking on Delete.
Export all files from your File Manager
You can export a zipped archive of all of your files, too. Just click on the Export button at the bottom of the file manager and provide an email address for us to email a link to where you can download the zip file when it's ready.
