Finding the proper FTP client is always a difficult task, but DeluxeFTP claims it has what it takes to help users who want nothing more than a freeware and effective solution.
With a GUI that’s inspired by Windows Explorer, DeluxeFTP comprises a site manager to easily access the configured FTP servers and create new connections with minimum effort.
What’s more, it shows both the server’s content and a log panel to see each command and detect any potential error that may occur.
One of the good things about DeluxeFTP is that it supports custom commands too, while also boasting proxy support that can be configured via the “Options” screen.
The same configuration menu can be used to set the default download path, the number of retries and the retry delay, as well as connection timeout and maximum simultaneous connections. You can also disable resume feature, send keepalive to prevent timeouts, automatically remove failed transfers from queue and force parallel file transfers.
Drag and drop support is also available, and so is a bookmark engine to save your favorite folders and access them with just a click.
DeluxeFTP is a fast and reliable FTP client that works flawlessly on all Windows versions. It doesn’t need too many resources to serve its purpose, but instead it remains light all the time.
Overall, DeluxeFTP is one of the easy to use FTP clients on the market, comprising only essential features and boasting a rather familiar look aimed at both rookies and those with a bit more experience.
