I used SmartFTP to upload a bunch of files at the same time. I thought the process was succesful until later I found out that it didn't tansfer all the files. (It wasn't obvious the first time since I have nested folders with files.)
So, I'm considering another free FTP program, that you guys know will work well, any suggestion?

CuteFTP is not free. I checked.

the command line (2K, XP) is free ;)

I've also noticed problems when you want to transfer several files. It doesn't like doing it completely.

However, I have yet to find a FTP utility that beats smartftp in terms of features and useability.

WS_FTP LE

works great and has been perfected since 1998

www.ipswitch.com (legally free, LE stands for Lite Edition)

http://www.ftpplanet.com/downloadLE.asp <-- quicker link to download

the only problem i have with this thing is: theres no option to be able to delete folders with files in them. Thats all. Its easy to CHMOD and Move and Rename, with simple click-and-drag, its a great free FTP untiul you buy Pro8, which is imo one the easyest and best FTP programs in the world, WS_FTP hasn't failed me yet today, and ive been using for years.

That's what I'm trying right now. The interface is not intuitive at all, but I'm gonna give it a try. I couldn't figure out how to chmod. Right click->FTP commands->??

Right click on the file / folder, it's there. I like WS_FTP too, imho, it's the best [free] one.

Well, if you want an open source one, I would recommend FileZilla (http://filezilla.sourceforge.net)

That said, SmartFTP probably just messed up in your case for some unfortunate reason.

i remember trying to use 3DFTP, its an FTP app with a wicked GUI, but it costs money for the real deal and needs updated DirectX (which i cant have unfortunatly, win98 and a vintage machine, you see)
