I much prefer FlashFXP over WS_FTP. I've used, and continue to use both, on a daily basis and FlashFXP is head and shoulders above WS_FTP in terms of usefulness.

I used WS_FTP happily for years, but when I bought a Win7 64-bit computer earlier this year, I couldn't get my old copy of WS_FTP to work with it.  I then installed the freeware program FileZilla to see whether that would work.  It did, and I've been using it ever since.  I'm very pleased, and so I've ignored the emails I get from time to time offering me WS_FTP at very substantial savings.

Hi,

CoreFTP., free is fine for most needs, too, maybe a bit less quirky in design that FileZilla, although FileZilla has more of a community.  The professional is about the same $20 as the WS_FTP discount.  So WS would need some special plus described to jump on the special.

There are a number of others too, I remember Sherrord as good, and zFTP as nice in having a good server as well as client.

Hi guys,

What do you think about FTP in Directory Opus?
Strange, Top Ten Reviews says FlashFXP is a discontinued product, http://ftp-software-...w.toptenreviews.com/

FlashFXP is still developed. Just got a maintenance update today for v4.1.7.

>  Top Ten Reviews says..

Just a FYI that TTR is not a legit site, reviews and ad $$ or more likely sales $$ (the links they have to sell) are inter-twangled. So they are not particularly concerned about accuracy.  You can occasionally get some decent information out of them, or at least names of products, as long as you realize that their methodology is bogus.  Afaik, full freeware will not show up in their reviews (e.g. FileZilla) since there is not $$ any which way.  Also they can do bogus stuff like harmful registry "cleaners", scamware.

I didn't know WS-FTP was still around? Does it still have its patented retro-Win 3.11 program still now that it's almost 2012?

As for Directory Opus, it's always had a competent, basic FTP functionality to it, but now that v10 has been released with a full queue to back up its already decent features, DOpus has become a very decent/excellent FTP client.

LOL, you read my mind.
