FlashFXP allows uploading and downloading files to FTP sites. As any other FTP client, this one can handle any file type. It supports transferring data between a local computer and a remote location as well as between two remote machines. The application has an explorer-like interface with two panels that allow viewing both the target and the source directory simultaneously. Luckily, the tool permits drag-and-drop operations between the two panels. Moreover, it allows working on various sessions at the same time, but I did not like that each session is run in a separate window. In my opinion, showing them as separate tabs would be more convenient.

The program can manage transfer queues without any problems. Likewise, you can use filters to prioritize or block specific file types. Furthermore, it is possible to create and save tasks for later use. In this regard, it is even allowed to schedule these jobs to run at a specific time or with a given frequency. Unfortunately, the program does not have a built-in scheduler, so it uses Windows Task Scheduler instead.

Besides standard FTP, the tool supports various secure file transfer protocols, including SSH and FTPS. There are other features that help you transmit data in a protected way, such as its support of X.509 certificates for user authentication, which are verified through Windows Certificate Store. Likewise, the program safeguards your password using 128-bit encryption.

All in all, FlashFXP is basically not very different from other FTP tools. Yet, it has some extra features, such as a text editor and folder comparison. The product is shareware and you can try it without any restrictions for 30 days.

andrew this program is the best i have ever stumbled upon.... it has a lot of options that you can use to "fix up" you computer, first of all it has this start menu editor so you can decide what you want to have on your start menu like i only have the programs i use the most and the rest are hidden ( not erased, the uninstalling part has 4 options,a built-in, which uses the built-in uninstaller, safe, which uses the built-in uninstaller and does a simple scan and deletion, normal dose an extended scan and search as well as deletion but is slower than safe, and super, which gets id of most times all the files of the desired program, that includes reg files and data files as well as the program files. and even some times it will get rid of all the files of the intended program. and for a few other computer choices you can make is the disk cleaner it gets rid of files you don't need or use and it can give back a bit of memory back in the process any way this is the best uninstaller one may ever find.
