CNET 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.
SmartFTP allows you to transfer files across the Internet. It features an Explorer-like, customizable interface and supports drag-and-drop functions. Multiple FTP connections can be opened at the same time, and you can copy files from one remote host to another (FXP). Remote-host directory information is cached for future viewing, and FTP URLs are supported. Other features include a favorites list, the ability to resume broken downloads, a global history, background transfers, proxy support, a passive transfer mode, and the ability to perform recursive downloads, uploads, and deletes.
What's new in this version: Version 4.0.1174 fixed Microsoft's Schannel hotfix broke TLS connections in Windows 7 SP1.

"Bad customer support"
Version: SmartFTP Client (64-bit) 4.0.1174
It almost does the job, but has plenty of bugs.
I am a paying customer (license ID 400101932) with problems after installing updates, they are no longer replying to my messages. This is how they treat their customers.
Don't buy anything from this company (or individual, as there is no record of a company behind the website).
