"Absolutely amateur product, hard to register/ uninstall"

August 07, 2010  |  By zemonn

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

May work well for someone.

Cons

1 - After install it throws an error
2 - Needs serial number that is difficult to try and chase down
3 - Upon uninstall it deletes EVERYTHING that is located in the same program group (in your start menu) as the program.

Summary

Poorly written product for a "professional" effort. The install progresses from inconvenient -> frustrating -> infuriating. The trial option could not have been more convoluted and registering on the web site (as instructed), does not actually provide a serial number for trial.

Unbelievable that they simply delete all links in the program group as opposed to actually KEEPING TRACK OF WHAT THE PROGRAMMERS ADDED!! I recommend avoiding this one...nothing but trouble for me. Now to go rebuild my Start Menu.

Pros

This free version has everything you need to move files easily from your hard drive to your remote server.
Stay Alive feature is perfect.
easy GUI

none found.

IPswitch has been the industry standard in FTP software for over 10 years. There is no other free FTP program that even comes close to the functionality of IPswitch's free edition FTP program.
