Thanks for updating "How to extract".

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.

I would like to have it load OneDrive for Business instead of just regular OneDrive.

webfork on 2018-03-10 15:01

@BGM: Yeah that would be a big help for me as well. I'm very confused about the material differences between the two services. Lord knows there's no real difference between free and paid versions of every other cloud storage service.

Could load and insert baidu ( cloud in the program. It will be very helpful.

WinSCP 5.5.5 (5.5.5 Build 4605) has been just released.

webfork on 2017-10-12 21:03

I've been a huge FileZilla fan since it came out back in 2001, but got a chance to test it today and WinSCP is amazing. I was able to resolve an issue with WebDAV via that program that no other program seemed capable of.

  • 1MB (uncompressed)

  • Suggested by Robin Macharg

i.Ftp is a small FTP client that supports dual-pane local/remote views, SOCKS proxy, resumable FTP/HTTP download and abortable transfers. Supports secure connections in both FTP over SSH and SSL. Can resume and schedule web (http) downloads like a basic download manager.

Client available for Mac OS X.

How to extract:
  1. Download the installer and extract to a temporary folder
  2. Move contents of $INSTDIR to a directory of your choice
  3. Optionally, delete libssh.dll and libeay32.dll if you do not need to use secure FTP

What's new? Changes:
  • Fixed the refresh button not honouring the current item filter.
  • Improved the filtering and listing of items to use hash tables instead of O(n) searching, which you won't notice on small folders but on 1000's of items it'll make a difference.

i.FTP is indeed portable. it doesnt have the ability to see symbolic link directories on the remote server. it thinks they are files. its annoying that when you select port 22 that it doesnt auto-detect that its FTP over SSH. i cant use this piece of junk. FileZilla is way better.

Jon Wright on 2010-04-21 10:26

Very basic but you might want to add it to your collection. Filezilla can't handle certain public wifi setups whereas i.FPT can.

outskirter on 2012-11-18 19:32

I realize I'm pretty late with this comment, but I've discovered a couple of annoying bugs in version 2.21 (which I've reported to the author), and eliminated them by downgrading to 2.11. Otherwise this is a very nice FTP client; portable, nicely laid out, and easy on resources.

Save2FTP v2.1

Checker on 5 Aug 2014
  • 2MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on
  • Suggested by Andrew Lee

Save2FTP is designed for an automatic online backup of your important data to remote FTP servers. It will help you organize your backups and schedule automatic backups. It supports inclusion and exclusion of files by wildcard mask as well as by exact file name, and keeps detailed logs of all backup operations. It includes a scheduler for unattended auto-backup and scheduling of any specific time or date, day of the week or month. It also allows you to create incremental backups so you only need to backup files that have changed.

Note: The freeware version of Save2FTP no longer appears to be available. I have made available for direct download the most recent version. Thanks to MarcosJC for sending me V2.1. If you have anything newer, please email me directly.

Runs on:Win95 / Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Path portability: Requires manual entry of relative path (eg. ..\..\personal\work.doc)
License: Freeware

If you like to localize to your language, you will find a
translation package at:
There is also a language pack for german and dutch.
I tried 'german' with V2.5 and it worked fine.

Andrew Lee on 2009-06-26 06:19

@Humbleside: Thanks for the official link to the freeware version. I downloaded and tried it. Although it says the version is "1.9", when you run the installer it says "2.1". And the version info in the EXE says "". So I will remove the direct download and point the links to the official ones.

Andrew Lee on 2009-06-26 06:21

@Checker: Thanks for the link. However, as I am unable to verify the authenticity of the software (eg. is it a cracked version), I will continue to point to the official links supplied by Humbleside.
