Editors' Review


Core FTP Lite is a top-notch freeware FTP client, with a wide, uncluttered layout to keep things organized. Easy to use and lacking only the most advanced of features, like multisite connections, Core FTP is a must-have.

Major functions such as Site Manager for maintaining connection information, Quick Reconnect, and mode switching are given big buttons on the toolbar. When you're connected to a site, though, the file-management pane also replicates buttons for most of these functions so you don't have to mouse very far to use the tool you need. The client supports all essential FTP functions, including multiple transfers, secure protocols, configurable ASCII uploading for specified file types, browser integration, and more.

There are few downsides to using this app. There's no scheduler. Some users have noted past stability issues, both in general and when conducting large transfers, but it seems that many older bugs have been worked out. We noticed no problems during our tests and strongly recommend Core FTP Lite.

"Solid, dependable, works!"

December 10, 2011  |  By fkeller9

 |  Version: Core FTP LE 2.2 build 1718


Can transfer complex folders with single click. Dependable.


GUI not great but after I'm used to it - no prob. Occasionally it will stop working on XP or Win7 .. i download again and all is well. I have not figured yet how to save and use the backup of sites config but don't really need it.


I don't need fancy. It works. It's well worth the price (free). I've occasionally been told or felt it was failing. Occasional reinstall (on top of the old) fixes all. I don't need another FTP.
