I always use a binary FTP to move the save files. I have never had the
Navigator function work quite right.

I'm not suggesting that Navigator is the problem, rather the movement of
the data from one IBM i box to the PC and then to the target IBM i box.
Just too many places for trouble. IBM i FTP directly to IBM i always
works, minimizes places for data corruption and because the LAN/WAN is
usually more robust between the hosts, faster.

I'm trying to use i navigator but it won't let me copy/paste the *SAVF

I'm using the Edit menu to copy, then navigate to the target system and
select paste but nothing happens.

Also I'm also curious as to how it would know that the other two
would require *PRV on the save commands. And I suppose the same would be
true if using FTP - how does it know to specify *PRV?
