ESP8266 Upload SPIFFS

Hi,

I’m using IDE 1.8.5. When using an ESP8266-Board, there should be a menu item to upload folder “data” to SPIFFS. But instead there is an intem “WiFi101 Firmware Updater” (see attachment).

Whats wrong?

Kind regards
Ulli

What makes you expect a menu item to upload folder "data" to SPIFFS? If you found that information online somewhere then post a link to it. Please use the chain links icon on the toolbar to make the link clickable.

the tool

Why ask here?

Isn't it better to ask the author? esp8266.forum for a start?

Did you install the tool plugin from https://github.com/esp8266/arduino-esp8266fs-plugin/releases/tag/0.3.0 ?

:roll_eyes:

Is it as silly as not installing the plugin? ? ?

Thank's for your support. I had searched in many tutorials on how to work with SPIFFS. But there was no hint that I had to install some extra software.

After intalling the plugin it works fine.
