About the only gripe I have about SmartFTP is the time it takes to upload multipul folders and files. (And no its not because of my connection..keep reading to find out.)

I tested this using SmartFTP, cuteFTP, WS_FTP Pro. I simply try to upload 13.6 MB (2,273 Files, 139 Folders) to my FTP. With 1 file, 13.6 MB should take ~6 minutes on my connection. I take 6 minutes and add 25% because of the time it takes to create folders, change folders etc. That comes to 7 1/2 minutes.

CuteFTP: 8 minutes and 47 seconds
WS FTP: 9 minutes and 15 seconds
SmartFTP: 17 minutes and 12 seconds

All I wonder is why it takes ALOT longer then the other two?

Great program but a b**** if you upload that set of files multipul times a day.

You can test with diferent IO buffer size for example i have uploaded
183 MB (191.901.254 bytes) 7212 files and 7 folders from 4:45:47 to 5:11:06 with 32 KB IO buffer size (25:19 minutes). The same files as taked from 5:34:46 to 6:11:58 with 16 KB IO buffer size (37:12 minutes). And from 6:24:37 to 6:49:45 with 64 KB IO buffer (25:08 minutes).
And for last 24:42 the same files using cute ftp pro 3.1.
