Scott Watermasysk asks what the hands-down best FTP tool is. I have been using FileZilla for the past year and have been very happy with it. It's fast, free, and trouble-free. Don't let the 'zilla part bother you if you are a softie.
Speaking of FTP tools, here are some features I want in my FTP tool:
- Persistent synchronization – intelligently monitor and update local directories to match remote directories or remote directories to match local directories.
- Delta archives – automatically record and archive changes.
- Integrity checker – detect illegal modifications or additions to remote directories.
