With an extensive and scalable architecture, Drupal offers the best tools and security to developers. It’s one of the safest web development platforms which offer multiple users to browse content on a website, with specific authorization levels.

Today we’re discussing Drupal’s file management modules and we picked up 10 best modules in file management. File management modules provide features on how the files in Drupal based websites are been uploaded or downloaded by users. Let’s see what the best file management modules are –

IMCE – IMCE is a file/image uploader-cum-browser, which supports directories. Some of the major features of IMCE include basic file uploading and deleting, image editing options, sharing file folders with users, directory navigation like FTP, file sorting options and inserting images into content.

FileField – If your website is dealing with large numbers of data and all are of big sizes, then FileField is a must use module for you. This module is mostly adopted when people introduce Podcasts into their sites, which actually contain large numbers of videos and audios.

ImageField – While working on CCK-Drupal based websites, ImageField module provides the option to add image field. With this module, developers find it easy to implement features like multiple images, image resolution, and thumbnail view.
