FTP clients make for a simple way to send files across the web to a distant computer system without making any complicated settings.
FTP Manager Lite
attempts to simplify the way you transfer files even more by providing support for moving the data from a PC to an FTP server, between two FTP servers or between two computers, provided that the necessary credentials are provided in all cases.
The interface does not hint at a complicated application and the default behavior at the first launch is to present a wizard that helps you create the desired connection profiles.
The list of supported transfer protocols is quite short, with only FTP and FTPS available, but most users do not require a more diverse set.
FTP Manager Lite does not include a rich set of configuration options, which should be greatly appreciated by the average user.
The possibilities at hand allow you to enable the display of the password when creating a connection profile as well as set the application to start with Windows.
As far as the actual file transfer settings are concerned, the developer makes available the possibility to define an action in case the same information is already present in the target location.
The choices at the ready include overwriting the data, appending a data and time stamp or skipping the transfer. In the case of folders you can choose to merge the contents or to give up the file moving.
FTP Manager Lite has not been designed as a full-blown FTP client and it is not intended for the power-user; instead it sports the basic options a novice and even an average user might require for the purpose of exchanging data between two locations, be they PCs, FTP servers or a combination of the two.
