What is CuteFTP?

CuteFTP is a series of FTP (file transfer) client applications used to transfer files between computers and File Transfer Protocol (FTP) servers.

About  (from GlobalSCAPE)

CuteFTP has been consolidated into one, powerful FTP client.


CuteFTP is a software program developed by GlobalSCAPE. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). When installed, it will add a context menu handler to the Windows shell in order to provide quick access to the program. The primary executable is named unwise32.exe. The setup package generally installs about 8 files and is usually about 3.63 MB (3,802,690 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows XP. While about 68% of users of CuteFTP come from the United States, it is also popular in Canada and Belgium.
