Questions on Free FTP


Guest
1 post

hello there,
I'm obviously not alone in not having a clue what S-Drive is all about!
I went to the main site in order to get a copy of the free FTP program and try it out.
My impression gained was that it was not a voluntary thing to sign up for whatever S-Drive was, based on the difficulty of getting the program to work, apparently without accepting the prompts to use/get this program.

Aside from that,I couldn't find any way to get rid of the most annoying animated pitch to upgrade to the next package up.
These sort of tactics should be left until after somebody has actually been able to do something with the initial program that they have downloaded - especially if it's supposed to be a good freebie! :-)

Cheers!

Using S-Drive is not required or obligatory in any way. In Free FTP, just click the Servers Toolbar Icon and then the Green + sign. Here you configure your FTP account

Now if you don't like the animated image in Free FTP, support CoffeeCup buy purchasing Direct FTP. Beggars cannot be choosers... ;)

The animated guy has been there for almost 2 years now. There was always some sort of advertisement before that too. The Transfer Activity Window is also there. Just press Control-T and then the push pin will dock it to the interface.
