Forklift is awesome. Synchronized browsing and diff tool integration are fab features. Also the fact that still retains colored folders in Mavericks is a big plus. However, I do agree it is due for an update. Is development still active on this project?

Very useful piece of software, even though finder improved this is still easier and more intuitive. Fast support too!

Thx

I love ForkLift, but I find it reports incorrect permissions on remote files. Be great if it handled cloud accounts too.

It is not the cheapest FTP client, but take my word it is about the best FTP client Mac OSX can run. Very native GUI and easy to work with. Actually, this should be the Finder by default. :)

Forklift is really a great "must have" tool for any OSX user! BUT I got a big problem with Version 2.5.9 and OSX 10.9.1... If I start Forklift, for some reason it shows no files or folders in the panes. The activity icons are running and then the OSX finder freezes.
Any idea? I already did a fresh install of forklift after removing ALL related files and directories. Also removed OSX Fuse, nothing changed... same effect.

On my older MacBook Air Finder is often sluggish. Forklift is not only a reliable FTP and WebDAV client, but also a good Finder alternative.

Please submit a bugreport at support@binarynights.com. Usually this is caused by a corrupted OSXFuse. Reinstalling or removing OSXFuse should solve this issue.

Absolutely top class! My only regret about Forklift - and it is a big one - is that I didn't get it years ago. It has completely changed the way I use my Mac when it comes to file related stuff, and has seriously boosted my productivity in so many ways - many of which I didn't anticipate when I bought it.

Compared to the normal Finder windows this is in a whole different league. It is feature-packed - to the point where I haven't found anything it can't do - and it is totally stable. I haven't had a single problem with it and I've used it for many months now.

I highly recommend this software for any Mac user who ever has to manage files, and that is pretty much everyone.

MAS 2.5.2 crashes on startup on 10.7.4 for me every time. Had to fall back to 2.5.1 from a Time Machine backup. 2.5.1 is working fine.

The devs should look into it.

Clean install of forklift 2.5.1 onto a new MacBook running 10.8. The app no longer saves my ftp passwords to my keychain.

Is this a feature or a bug?

I am a Forklift 2.0.8 user and downloaded 2.5 for testing. When I launch 2.5 it imports all my FTP accounts and settings except the passwords.

Is it only for me or? (Big problem!)

If I buy Forklift version 2.5 in the MUPromo Bundle... can I use my serial number with version 2 (I guess I would have to download separate from developer site)? I have MacOS 10.6 and not 10.7 which is needed by version 2.5

Anyone know the work around for only having MacOS 10.6?

Now that 2.5 is at beta, I downloaded it. It doesn't seem that it is using the preference file because all my favorites are gone! Is there a way to get them back without having to add them again?

Ignore my post above. The "PLACES" section was apparently minimized by default and that is why I didn't see anything.

Hate to be dummy o´the day... but, can anyone tell me if I can do an incremental sync with Forklift, or does it have to be a full sync each time. I am specifically interested in syncing from one video folder to another. Thanks :-)
