You could just recognise that software of any type takes time and money and it could just be a way of saying thank you to the creator. It doesn't have to be about what you get out of it.Thanks.
Would you tell me please why should I pay for it when it has the free version?
I cannot find a site where I could see the advantages of FZ Pro.
I've had issues when upgrading to a newer version of FileZilla. It seemed an automated download had installed some adware of some sort. I've since fixed that issue - but the underline/bolded portion of your post above is exactly why I've stuck with FileZilla. It is the only software that does exactly what I want it to do, when I want to do it. The GUI is excellent and the functionality is superb ... IF you have the best version installed (more about that below...) But wow... I'm not even sure I knew a pro version of FileZilla even existed. And it's only $9.95 ==> WOW! Thanks for the info.#1 reason I don't buy certain FTP software is most only allow one simultaneous connection. So slow.
#2 reason is poor logging/queuing display
I know everyone is all down on FileZilla (even Pro, which I have) but it hits all my check boxes and no one else so far has been able to.
It's a good client provided not coming with rubbish to install.
The version I use (and have had absolutely no problems with as concerns installing the rubbish) FileZilla 126.96.36.199You can get the free version without the junk, you just have to know the trick in getting that version the first time, then you're good. The paid version comes without the junk for sure.
Done:Now kinda thinking of buying the pro version

You don't have to worry about this if you download the free version using this handy guide I wrote:It's a sourceforge download - so you'd definitely need to run the downloaded file through your anti-malware/anti-virus programs. Once installed - you most definitely want to "NEVER" check for automated updates:
Just checked, yup, still thereGo to the repository: https://download.filezilla-project.org/client/
Scroll all the way to the bottom and find the "latest win64-setup.exe" and click that. It's a direct download, it will not take you to Sourceforge (i.e. not bundled). Install that, and when you upgrade, it will download direct from FileZilla so you won't get crapware installed, at least, I never did.
I meant to post earlier - but the free version FileZilla 188.8.131.52 also allows up to 10 "simultaneous transfers" -- which I *think* is concurrent connections to the server -- with unlimited concurrent downloads/uploads:My brand new toy(FileZilla Pro)allows 10 of them.
Hmmm. I *think* the "Maximum Simultaneous Transfers" = actual connections to the server.
FileZilla was one of a number of clients that got me temp banned from servers for opening up too many connections. The server owners suggested I was attempting to open up hundreds (possibly even more) of connections.My brand new toy(FileZilla Pro)allows 10 of them.
I suspect the answer to that question will also provide an explanation to my problemHow can it accept 10+10=20 downloads-uploads?
They are the simultaneous transfers, are not they?
