ForkLift features

Connect to multiple servers

Access to FTP, SFTP, Amazon S3, AFP, as well as WebDAV, SMB, and NFS remote volumes. Organize files across networks, access several servers at once; drag and drop to arrange them. Set saved remote connection as disk, run a saved Synclet even once ForkLift is off.

Quick search, selection and archive management

Find and select the needed items, including those on remote servers, by entering filenames, extensions, text or tags. See archives like simple folders. By the way, when it comes to archive management, the utility supports Quick Look, search and filtering.

Instant preview capabilities

Find all data on the chosen file in the preview panel. Check out photos, PDFs, and other types of files. Edit the text of the file on local drives and remote servers. Adjust this Mac SFTP client as the default file viewer, and rather than Finder, you’ll see apps pointing to it.

One or two-way synchronization

Compare local, remote sources in a snap using this FTP app for Mac. Find detecting matching, changed, new and deleted items in the active folders. Sync them one or two-way in a blink, or add them to Favorites.

File comparison + Single/Dual pane

Easily make the interface go back to usual single pane view, or choose to have your dual panes horizontally or vertically. Take advantage of a seamless integration with popular file comparison tools, and compare similar texts or media files.

Quick access to files

Get to your devices, menu commands, or favorites in a snap. Set a shortcut or hit a button in the toolbar to quickly access hidden items. Open a Terminal, iTerm, or Hyper window and enjoy having everything you need at your fingertips.
