    "Easy, simple... Too simple."

    February 25, 2008  |   By sivartis


    It's easy to use with an uncomplicated interface that's quick to learn.


    My big gripe that made this program instantly unusable to me is the inability to upload from external drives attached to my mac.

    Funny! I am not very experienced when it comes to uploading files using an FTP client. I tested with a .png picture file and found that I could not find the file if it was located direct on a volume of an external drive. If it was "hidden" inside a folder on the volume and I had no problem to upload the file.

    Current ClassicFTP can not conveniently show CD-ROMs or external drives as a shortcut on the gui interface like Finder does. But if you inserted an external drive or a CD, it can be found in /Volumes/ folder.
