Editors' Review

This powerhouse FTP client takes some getting used to, but you'll be glad you gave it a chance. Don't be alarmed by the cramped, multipane Windows Explorer-like interface; you can customize the toolbars and windowpanes however you like.

With the Local Browser window visible, SmartFTP supports drag-and-drop transfers like those on basic FTP clients. But its real power lies deeper within its option menus, where you'll find CHMOD remote file-attribute modification, background file transfers, multiple FTP connections, passive-mode transfers, site-to-site transfers (FXP), and connections via proxy or SSL. Using the Global Queue window, you even can schedule downloads or uploads to more than one server.

SmartFTP may overwhelm beginners, but it's a natural for intermediates and up.

"WORST CUSTOMER SUPPORT POSSIBLE"

May 21, 2015  |  By Xenon Inc.

 |  Version: SmartFTP Client (32-bit) 6.0.2136.0

Pros

Very nice software, frequent updates.

Cons

Customer support is basically anti-customer.

Summary

Like pretty much all of the previous comments, to say the customer support is dismissive, would be an understatement.

Paid customer: minimum $40 a year bill to stay "subscribed" to having this software work. If you accidentally take an update past your expiration, forget it, they won't provide you with the last working version even when directly asked, whether in their forums or directly through their email customer support. The money you spent is literally ... GONE. No more working FTP client.

Asking for support usually ends up in being ignored.

I would highly recommend NOBODY PAY for this software, no matter how much you like it. Trust me, you'll end up regretting it at some point later. Really, the BBB should be looking into this place.

"DO NOT BUY"

May 10, 2015  |  By beegirl7

 |  Version: SmartFTP Client (32-bit) 6.0.2136.0

Pros

see the hundreds of user reviews going back years (click Reviews: "All Versions" above) complaining about ripping off paid customers with a program that doesn't work after you pay for it. wish I came here and read all the reviews before spending money

Cons

after you pay they'll deactivate you're program, I emailed and asked why it doesn't work and their rude customer support guy says to pay again. WHY would I pay again after i already paid for the program? i emailed my receipts and they're not honoring that i paid for it

Summary

what a rip off, can't believe i wasted $39.95 when there are so many FREE programs out there. and their customer support ruined my day by being so rude

"DON'T BUY!!! RIP OFF!!! BBB RATING OF F"

May 08, 2015  |  By chicago255

 |  Version: SmartFTP Client (32-bit) 6.0.2136.0

Pros

When they rip you off, they actually do admit to ripping you off because it's in their terms of agreement. That's considerate of them.

Cons

You pay $59.95 for a license, but as soon as a new version comes out (which is every few months), it'll auto-update and stop working, and then tell you to pay for a new license to re-activate. Your license if for the "old" version and is no longer valid. Can't seem to turn off auto update.

Summary

Rip off!!! Extremely misleading as it says your license is "perpetual".

"Do Not Buy"

April 26, 2015  |  By rckape

 |  Version: SmartFTP Client (32-bit) 6.0.2136.0

Pros

easy to use and powerful when it works

Cons

Shocking service. Smart FTP don't seem very interested in honouring their end of the user terms and conditions. They don't recognise a perpetual license as being perpetual, preferring instead to charge you $39 every year for a 'maintenance' contract. Apathetic support/sales staff leave a bad taste in your mouth.

Summary

DO NOT BUY!!!
