Editors' Review

+

FileZilla is a powerful, free file management tool for FTP access to your Web site's server. Containing numerous tools to help upload and download files between your local machine and the server on which your site is hosted, this is a reliable, intuitive tool for anyone in the Web development field.

Pros

Reliable and fast: FileZilla may be free, but it's a very stable program and offers reliable, accessible tools for anyone who needs to manage files via remote FTP connection. With your username and password you can quickly log in to the FTP server, move files, upload new files, and even edit files with programs on your local machine. All of this is done quickly, and the software didn't crash or hang like many other free tools have in our tests.

Feature rich: The most basic functions of FileZilla work well, but there are even more tools here for advanced users. From Manual Configurations to speed limit monitoring under the Transfer menu, FileZilla has a lot beneath the surface, if you plan on using it often.

Cons

Daunting for newcomers: As deep and reliably fast as FileZilla is, it can be confusing for someone who is not already familiar with FTP protocols. It can also be dangerous as the tool doesn't prompt you to create copies on the local account and doesn't have options for syncing different file versions. While it does check if you want to overwrite a file, there are many situations here in which mistakes can be made. Combined with a somewhat confusing interface, it can be daunting for less experienced users.

Bottom Line

If you are looking for a solid, reliable FTP tool for your Windows desktop, consider FileZilla. Available for free and containing every major tool you could need to manage your files, FileZilla is a perfect addition to your toolbox, and with a number of more robust tools in the FileZilla library, it scales well for professionals.

"Trojans & Adware"

February 01, 2015  |  By SoftwareUser9000

 |  Version: FileZilla 3.10.0.2

Pros

None because of the hour it took for my to clean my pc.

Cons

Took all precautions and it tried to install Trojan and did in fact install Adware.

Summary

I scanned my machine with Malwarebytes. It was clean. I downloaded FileZilla from the official FileZilla / Sourceforge website. I chose the Client download. I saved it to a specific folder. I scanned it with Malwarebytes and it scanned clean. I ran it. I chose Advanced install. I unchecked ALL of the optional software. It then began a download. Norton flashed a warning that it had intercepted a Trojan. I stopped the install and Erased the install file. I ran Malwarebytes again and it found multiple adware registry entries. I had it quarantine them. Then I rebooted. Ran another scan with Malwarebyes. It came up clean. Opened up Firefox. It took my to some Adware site Foxtab something or other. I ran CCleaner. Re-scanned. Rebooted. Am I finally done? I don't know? Do not use or download anything from the software publisher/creator. They have misrepresented themselves leading you to believe if you follow their directions you can avoid these viruses and adware. Very very despicable !!!

January 28, 2015  |  By SoftwareTestPilot

 |  Version: FileZilla 3.10.0.2

Pros

This use to be a great program. Now it does not work. Filezilla does not respond to technical support.

Cons

Newest version fails to acknowledge Godaddy servers and shared servers. I have no idea what went wrong. Sudden change screwed it up. Now have to find old version. STUPID!!!!!!!!!

"Once a great software, not anymore"

January 26, 2015  |  By crapmaster

 |  Version: FileZilla 3.10.0.2

Pros

Was the best FTP/SFTP application in the past

Cons

Crapware messes up your computer and gives you hours of work to get back to original state.

Summary

Once a great project and software. Now a total disaster with an installer loaded with crapware so awful that the only way to get the crap installed is to hide it in installers.
Took me quite some time to get the crap uninstalled again and the computer acting properly again.

Nice going ruining a great software.

"Installs Malware"

January 18, 2015  |  By ocinataS

 |  Version: FileZilla 3.10.0.1

Pros

Used to be good software

Cons

Misleading installer bundles malware

Summary

Installs malware if you're not careful to decline bundled browser hijacker (Vosteran) and PC Optimizer Pro during very misleading install process. Tim Kosse should just offer a paid version instead of trying to trick people into installing this crap.

"Can't upload to either of my websites"

January 15, 2015  |  By whobeda

 |  Version: FileZilla 3.10.0.1

Pros

Used to work great.

Cons

I haven't been able to upload since installing this new version.

Summary

I'm very frustrated with this situation. I have two commercial websites I maintain and not being able to update them is a huge inconvenience. You would think they'd hurry up and fix the situation.
