Usage

After running the installer, launch FtpDropper. To get started, click Create and fill out the settings for your FTP server. Once you create and save your settings, click Create Shortcut to make a shortcut to the dropper settings file. It is recommended that you place the shortcut on the Desktop for easy access.

To upload files or folders, simply select them and drag and drop them to the shortcut. The status window will track each upload.
