Everyone who has a website or blog has to upload files to their ftp server and download files to local computer regularly. There are some great software like Filezilla to do that, but there is also a better way to use FTP with out connecting with FTP software. NetDrive is a freeware for Windows that allows you to map FTP servers as local drives in Windows.
NetDrive mounts the remote FTP servers as windows local drives, you can drag and drop files to your mounted FTP drives like normal windows local drives. You can configure it to mount the FTP drive when Windows starts, useful if you are using the FTP server as a backup drive. Not only copying back and forth but you can play video, audio files and run .exe files etc.
Using Site Manager you can easily register and connect with FTP servers you want to access. There is no limit for the number of sites that can be added. It also comes with pre loaded with a few anonymous FTP servers like KDE, GNOME, FreeBSD, Adobe, Apple, HP and Microsoft servers.
NetDrive is a free for personal use. It works with Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista.
