What are some good FTP programs (free)? I'm having some problems w/ WS_FTP LE and would like to try another w/o having to install and realize it's crap.

I use an extremely old version of AceFTP

I tried the newer version that you see on the site and there were some major performance problems for me and that is why I reverted back to the older version. I think I have Version 1.3 or something. Anyway I think this is probably not a good choice, as there are probably many better ones out there then this AceFTP program.

Well, if you want WS FTP Pro, you can go here - http://jupsoft.host.sk/fosi/

It's a cracked version, so you could consider it to be free, ha ha ha. That's what I use.

Well I am not exactly sure in the new version. In the old version I would go here:

Options > General Preferences > Adavanced

and then I would check "List hidden files on host"
and then I would UNcheck "Hide files starting with a . "

I use FLASHFXP, and always wondered why my .htaccess wouldnt show up. After reading what BigWeb suggested, I tried it and now I can see the hidden files :) :)

Hip Hip HOOOOOORAY! :D

speaking about ftp and .htaccess whenever i download my .htaccess from the server to my computer it shuts down my ftp program (ace ftp). i have to rename it something other than .htaccess because i think windows doesnt like the . at the begining. anyone else have this prob?

I do not have that problem. My guess is its just a bug, but who knows, maybe Windows ME rejects it.
