Editors' Review

+
Whether you're a demanding Webmaster who needs rock-solid stability and speedy performance or you're simply managing some files on an FTP server, AceFTP is the program for the job. The well-designed interface is loaded with colorful icons for tasks such as connecting to a server, disconnecting, and accessing Favorites. Icons for creating new folders, changing directories, and other tasks follow the Windows Explorer style. In addition to the standard client/host two-window layout, AceFTP has a multifunctional third window wherein you can monitor the logs, keep track of file transfers, or preview simple HTML pages and images. AceFTP is a pleasure to look at and use, and thankfully the behind-the-scenes workings live up to its looks. We found file transfers speedy and the program stability good. Though AceFTP has some innovative features, its main appeal is the overall fit and finish, especially considering it's freeware. We recommend AceFTP to anyone seeking a solid FTP client.

"COULD NOT INSTALL IT"

December 13, 2010  |  By Lucien_Sabre

 |  Version: AceFTP Freeware 3.80.3

Pros

None I could see.

Cons

My Norton Internet Security warned me of a lowest-level trojan attached to the installation wizard.

Summary

When I tried to install it, my Norton Internet Security warned me of a lowest-level trojan (or malware), initialized along the installation wizard; so I stopped the wizard and didn't finish installation. o.o
Plus (this is a rather idiotic personal reason), I find the interface quite ugly aesthetically. :P

"NOT FREE - COMES WITH SPYWARE!"

November 30, 2010  |  By sklt7276-2009

 |  Version: AceFTP Freeware 3.80.3

Pros

None, I don't have anything good to say about this product.

Cons

Everything, it's not free at all, sure you can download for free, but "YOU CAN'T USE IT"
it ask for a registration code and $$$$$ to get one... It leaves tons of JUNK on your machine, toolbar, changes your defaults, etc., etc...

Summary

Don't download this, I am still cleaning up JUNK that was left behind after I removed this product several days ago.... BEWARE OF THIS PRODUCT!

"Awesome FTP Client"

July 20, 2010  |  By dpowell7299

 |  Version: AceFTP Freeware 3.80.3

Pros

Ease of use, just a great GUI FTP Client

Cons

they bug you quite regularly about upgrading and at least once I was fooled into thinking it was a free upgrade and ended up having to delete it completely and reinstall the free one, losing all my FTP sites I had saved up.

Summary

Even with the bugging to buy it, this is the best GUI FTP Client I have used and I've been FTPing since 1981

Pros

Handles most all major ftp functions. At least it was free.

Cons

Look for other ftp programs which have more functionality.

Summary

I guess I can't complaint too much since I didnt pay for this product.

"Requires installation of TOOLBAR!"

June 14, 2010  |  By jabababa

 |  Version: AceFTP Freeware 3.80.3

Pros

Well, at least it asks you if you want to install that darn thing, so I stopped the installation right there.

Cons

You can't install the program with installing a toolbar, suspicious.

Summary

I was in need of a program like this one, and when TechTracker told me there was an update available, I thought "what the heck", but now I guess I have to look for something safer. Unless you like playing hazard with your computer, keep clear away from AceFTP.

"Excellent software"

April 12, 2010  |  By dd64sg

 |  Version: AceFTP Freeware 3.80.3

Pros

Easy to use

Cons

Have to save a (free) activation key everytime i reinstall windows or buy a new computer or upgrade windows i have to hunt for this key. I am not sure if the latest version requires this registration key.

Summary

I have been using this software for years, it works so beautifully i have never felt the need to upgrade. I tried checking what version i have but help/about is a useless ad box that does not list the version I have. Anyway it doesn't matter, I would recommend this software to everyone. Once when I wanted to transfer 10GB of files from my linux machine to windows machine i didn't know how to connect the two, luckily this program helped me to log on to linux from windows and i was able to transfer it. Though it crashed 3 times because of such a huge load, it picked where it left off on restarting. I am sure they would have fixed that bug by now, though I still don't feel the need to upgrade.

"No TOOLBAR!"

March 18, 2010  |  By dirtdigr

 |  Version: AceFTP Freeware 3.80.3

Pros

I couldn't tell you as I didn't install once I came to the toolbar that you have to download! I thought this might be the one after reading CNET's review.

Cons

I was very disappointed about the toolbar that they force on you- and in my book that is just plain bad business

Summary

This software is one to stay away from because of the unwanted toolbar- sad.
