Having used it for many years, Filezilla has lost its way now in my opinion. The irritating pop up balloon on every successful upload is just one of the annoyances. The latest update seemed to corrupt something on my Windows and I was reduced to about one fifteenth of the normal upload speed. Going back to an ancient version hasn't fixed the issue and the portable versions are the same. However WinSCP works fine so it's that for me from now on.

vmars: When I looked into this a few months ago, there weren't any.  You'll want to look into WinSCP or other command-line tools.

Does FileZilla have a batch component ?
I would like to also use it to keep my stealth Cliplog/CipFind files inSync onto my website . So any of my computers can get up to date info .?

linuxx: drops Windows XP support. If you're on XP, this and future versions won't work. The last version that supports XP is linked in the main text.
