FTP support

Just as with archives FTP sites are opened as if they were normal folders. Uploading and downloading of files are no different from local copy operations. Either use the copy tools or use drag & drop.

Site manager

Manage your FTP sites with the built in site manager. By adding sites you access often to the site manager you no longer have to remember their address, just give them whatever name you like.

Each site can have different FTP options that override the global FTP options specified in the preferences. This includes the number of retries during connection, file name preservation, proxy options, log window etc.


There is no need to worry whether the target or source of your file operations are archives or FTP sites. Magellan Explorer does all the extracting, uploading etc. for you in the background.

Clipboard URL monitor

Magellan Explorer can monitor the Windows clipboard to detect any FTP URLs. Once it discoverers a FTP site address it can automatically open it.

Find and folder size

These tools works on FTP sites as well as on local files and folders.

Keep alive

Normally you will get disconnected from an FTP server if do not perform any commands over a fixed period of time. By using this option Magellan Explorer will attempt to keep the connection up and running all the time.
