Editors' Review

+
This is a simple and straightforward program that will appeal to people who prefer to access files with Windows Explorer. FTP Desktop essentially turns Explorer into an FTP client and lets you transfer files without having to download them first. The program supports background file transfers, batch uploads and downloads, passive mode transfers, and site-to-site transfers. One handy feature is that the program lets you save settings for each FTP site, such as initialization commands or usernames and passwords. FTP Desktop performed flawlessly in all our tests. Overall, we recommend this reliable program for anyone who needs a no-frills FTP client.

"Beware: Malware installs with this download"

February 27, 2014  |  By Catherine1224

 |  Version: FTP Desktop 3.6.3

Pros

The FTP function worked as expected. I needed only basic FTP.

Cons

Malware was included with this download. I experienced problems as soon as the program was installed. Malwarebytes fixed most of it, but I was still left with my browsers defaulting to search.conduit for the home page. I'm still trying to get rid of that.

Summary

I downloaded and installed this program in February 2014. I hope that by the time you read this, these problems have been corrected.

"It USED to work well"

December 29, 2010  |  By shshapero

 |  Version: FTP Desktop 3.6.3

Pros

Works great in Windows XP and below - just attaches to your Windows Explorer and you drag files to your Internet site - very easy and consistent - worth every penny UNLESS you migrate to Windows Vista or Windows 7

Cons

Once in Windows Vista or Windows 7 - all bets are off. It doesn't install and NO ONE in the company responds to your emails - even if you are a REGISTERED USER (and I bought two copies - one for work, one for home). I've written numerous times.

Summary

My work-around was to go with Filezilla - which isn't quite as convenient, but it works almost as well and it's free!

"using it for updating website"

July 13, 2008  |  By cadel14

 |  Version: FTP Desktop 3.6.3

Pros

It is simple and straight forward. Drag and drop and the files are uploaded.

Cons

I'm missing in chom tool the possibility to set the permission numeric f.e. 755. instead of ticking boxes. This works faster and is easier to control.

"Not user friendly at all! Uninstalled the program and installed Bulletproof ftp client is so much better!"

March 20, 2008  |  By Helega De Grey

 |  Version: FTP Desktop 3.6.3

Cons

You have to know a lot about ftp programs and what files and directories goes where. You have to do everything yourself and then upload.

This is a fantastic FTP program! I was able to install and use this software within a minute! It's great! In fact I liked it so much I payed the $40 and got the full licensed version. Definitely a worthwhile investment for those who need a great inexpensive FTP program!
