File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a network protocol that allows transferring files among different systems in a network. Although an FTP site can be accessed using even Windows built-in File Explorer, using an FTP client, like FlashFXP, may have many advantages.

The application has an Explorer-like interface, with two panels, one for the local directory and the other for the remote location. Thus, transferring data between the two directories isn’t much more difficult than moving files from one folder to another. Also available from the interface, there are several options that allow listing a directory in different ways. Besides, you can organize and visualize the contents of a directory using masking and inverting selection. Other ancillary tools are also included in the program, which support editing text, monitoring the clipboard, comparing folders as well as backing up or restoring data.

The tool allows fast transfers. Moreover, it can significantly reduce the amount of data by applying on-the-fly compression. In terms of confidentiality, FlashFXP supports various security features, such as Blowfish and SSL/TLS encryption and fortunately, its latest versions now allow SSH. However, if you’re dealing with non-sensitive information, you can also use anonymous logins.

Fortunately, you don’t need to be in front of a computer to monitor the activity as you have the possibility of scheduling large transfers at a given time, so that they won’t interfere with your work or connection speed. Besides, the program guarantees the total completion of your transferences by reconnecting and auto-resuming broken connections. Also, the tool supports numerous protocols, like FTP, HTTP, Socks, as well as various widely used proxies, including WinProxy, Squid and Wingate.

In general, FlashFXP is probably one of the best choices if you take into account its reasonable price. Regrettably, it doesn’t come with as many verification methods as other available programs. So, you should consider affordability, usability, security as well as your own necessities before making a choice.

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.
