Overall, we recommend this reliable program for anyone who needs a no-frills FTP client.
FTP Desktop lets you access FTP sites as if they were folders on your computer. It turns Windows Explorer into a full-featured FTP client with an FTP site manager. The program lets you view or edit remote files without having to download them first and automatically uploads changes after you close an editor. It supports background file transfers (initiate a file transfer and continue browsing), batch uploads and downloads, and passive mode transfers, and is configurable for individual sites and for site-to-site transfers. It lets you change permissions on Unix servers in the file properties dialog box, resume broken downloads and uploads, issue custom FTP commands, and specify user-defined FTP commands to automatically send after logon.
