Preferred Apps for File Transfer


Wherever possible we strongly recommend that you use Files.com's native apps as opposed to third party apps such as FTP apps.

In order to support the fastest possible speeds, we have built many optimizations into the apps that we provide.

These optimizations include things like automatically tuned parallelism, intelligent routing around corporate firewalls, and more. We have also added much of this technology into our SDKs.

Here are our apps ranked by speed:

  • Files.com Command Line App (CLI) - Our fastest app is command-line only, but supports a wide variety of sync scenarios and scriptability. The CLI supports our most advanced acceleration technology and always wins hands down in speed tests.
  • Files.com Desktop App for Windows/Mac - This app is integrated with the Windows Explorer and MacOS Finder and provides highly tuned upload and download performance. This app is also where Files.com is putting many of its development efforts around speed, so investing in this app will be the best way to benefit from future improvements.
  • Files.com Mobile App for iOS/Android - If you are on a mobile device, leverage our mobile apps for iOS and Android for fast parallel file transfers.
  • Files.com SDKs for Developers - Our SDKs include the same optimization technology as our CLI app for optimum speed.

Cyberduck

Cyberduck is a third party app that offers native Files.com integration in a client that works like a typical FTP client. If our Desktop App is unable to work for you due to your configuration, we recommend Cyberduck.

Once inside Cyberduck, do not choose FTP or SFTP as the connection type. There is a Files.com option when you go to add a new server.
