    STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY. WORST CUSTOMER SUPPORT EVER. Purchased File Zill Pro 6 months ago.
    Upgrades not working, registration fails, not responsive, spaming my mailbox with automated messages.
    Worst of all – they ask me to upgrade, while even download link is not working. Those people are the worst software people I've been dealing with in my 40 years of IT work.
    Although program itself is not terribly bad, people behind it as just a nightmare 🙁

    If i will open file and will make some changes on the right side of ftp (not my computer) does it mean that I will make those changes to production project? To work with files I need to download to computer or I can make some kind other back up project file and work from filezilla? Do yo know what I mean?
