    free ftp program ? My current ws_ftp keeps crashing


    My ws_ftp 12 Professional has stopped working on my Win 8.1 laptop. cannot currently afford to upgrade it.

    So I am looking for a free ftp program, that can see .dot files as well as regular files, on my web sites. I'll also need to be able to change permissions.

    Thanks !

    I downloaded a newer version of ws_ftp 12 Professional. Uninstalled the old copy. Installed new... which worked for about 20 minutes, and now crashes the same way.
