SmartFTP is a desktop application compatible with XP and later versions of Windows operating system. It is a file sharing client with facility for using multiple network protocols that enable secure data transfer in a timely manner. You can use FTP, SFTP, FTPS, S3, WebDAV, OneDrive, Google Drive, Terminal and SSH for sharing variety of files between local system and a network server. Another purpose of this software is to maintain websites and publish content on them. Therefore, it is usually preferred by web developers who look for easier yet safe methods for uploading files, images and text on their sites.
SmartFTP enables you to quickly transfer various files to server. Either you can select and share files manually or select all the concerned documents and schedule them. This will add the selected files to Queue and will automatically upload them one after the other. In this way, the users can save a lot of time. The Transfer Queue contains the list of documents that need to be shared and also displays some useful information. The displayed details include File name, operation, size, source, destination, status, average speed, current speed and elapsed and left time and these give an insight of file sharing process.
With the help of SmartFTP, you can easily synchronize files that are present at both server and client ends. When the file is received at the server end, it checks the name of both files and compares the content on the basis of hash values for different characteristics of document. If the content is already present in the server document, it will be left unchanged. This benefit can be obtained only if the Integrity Check feature is enabled. But if this feature is disabled, the content will not be changed and instead the file from the source will replace existing document at the destination.
This application provides the feature of viewing content that is uploaded on the server. The images can be viewed in thumbnails. All these thumbnails are stored in a single folder at pre-defined location. Other documents and files have previews available. You can preview different documents to have a brief look at the information they hold. The supported document types include C#, PHP, ASP, Python, HTML, CSS, Lisp, SQL, Diff and many other formats.
Resumption of Uploads:
Sharing files or uploading them on server usually requires long enough time. If internet is disconnected or system is turned off then the process will have to be restarted. This practice wastes a lot of time. However, the problem is solved with SmartFTP. It keeps track of uploaded content and continues data transfer from where it was stopped. It is especially useful when files are uploaded in bulk.
