I am looking for a FTP client running on Microsoft Windows and with a GUI that allows more than 10 simultaneous uploads.

FileZilla is limited to 10:

WinSCP is limited to 9:

CyberDuck is limited to 9:

Any license and price is fine.

For example, in Linux CLI, I use lftp. Explanation from wiak:

lftp sftp://user:password@server.org:22 -e 'mirror --verbose --use-pget-n=8 -c /remote/path /local/path'

  • sftp:// = uses SFTP protocol
  • mirror = mirror mode
  • verbose = shows the files being downloaded
  • use-pget-n = number of segments, realy useful to speed up big files
  • parallel = downloads multiplier files at the same time

if you want to download files in parallel switch out use-pget-n=8 with --parallel=8

  • If you are trying to upload >10 times to the same site, you run the risk of being interpreted as a Denial Of Service attack. – Chenmunka Jul 21 '16 at 8:08
  • @Chenmunka yes but sometimes I am uploading to my servers :-) – Franck Dernoncourt Jul 21 '16 at 13:47
  • @Chenmunka: haha, reminds me of my old hoster who dropped more than one (!) connection. – Thomas Weller Jul 21 '16 at 17:10

Cyberduck! Available for Windows (as well as OSX) and allows as many uploads as you connection can handle - and even multiple connections to the same host.


  • Great, thanks, and it has a retry option as well i.stack.imgur.com/nh6Ch.png – Franck Dernoncourt Jul 21 '16 at 16:07

    @FranckDernoncourt: I can't try at the moment, but the spinner value in the "Transfers" window goes up to 9 only. Is that the maximum connection count? – Thomas Weller Jul 21 '16 at 17:17
  • @ThomasWeller I haven't tested it (I encountered some hard drive issue on the server where I wanted to use Cyberduck) – Franck Dernoncourt Jul 21 '16 at 17:30
  • @ThomasWeller I tested too, 9 indeed this seems to be the max. – Franck Dernoncourt Aug 5 '16 at 17:54
