    You Can Simply download the files. Downloading the Files will not delete them on the server.this is the case of a website without database . And if you have a database, then FTP is important.you have to retrieve the contents of the FTP and file in the root directory of your web created by the computer software Wampserver that you might have previously installed.

    Open the Filezilla and through the right window, which is your web server, go to the root directory of your Web site. According to the hosts, it can be a directory called www or public_html, but you can also fly directly above when connecting Filezilla. In all cases, is where the file index.html or index.php principal, usually the first page of your site.

    Filezilla left side of the window represents your computer. Go to the Web Directory Wampserver, which is normally in C: \ wamp \ www \ and contains only a file "index.php" you can delete. Select all the contents of the right window (CTRL + A) and upload it with a drag and drop to the directory on the left.


    Once the download is complete, you have already taken the first important step in safeguarding the files on your website.

    To download files, the instructions are the opposite of the upload, whereby you would be moving files from the right-side(remote site) to the left-side(local site). After you download your site files from the server(index.html/assets/html) to a specific directory on your computer,
