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.

"This is a scam"

December 20, 2011  |  By blakelogan1

 |  Version: SmartFTP Client (32-bit) 4.0.1226


The client mostly works but it has bells and whistles that strain your computer's processing speed and which you probably don't need.


I purchased Smart FT software for file transfer purposes. A purchase currently priced at $36.95 is supposed to be a permanent license to use the software with no ongoing costs. Shortly after my purchase I was notified by a popup window when I began to use the program that a new free upgrade was available for improved performance and the upgrade would be free of charge to license holders. What the "upgrade" did in fact was disable the program from running unless you purchase a yearly "maintenance agreement". The scam involves the advertising of a permanent license for a fixed fee and then disabling your software unless you pay an ongoing "maintenance fee". I have e-mailed this company at every available e-mail address and left a message on their phone with no response.


There's no need to purchase Smart FTP as long as an open source product like Filezilla is available. In addition the "Maintenance Program" is a bait and switch operation.
