Reduce spinning beach ball delays on network drives

It should be pointed out that SFTP is not FTP. SFTP is an FTP like client that really uses ssh to communicate to the remote machine. This is important when choosing a GUI client because there is another protocol called FTP/S which *is* FTP but over an SSL or TLS connection. The three clients mentioned in the OP all support SFTP.

Good point about sftp not being ftp. I should have mentioned that in the hint, but, as you note, I did list 3 ftp clients that all support sftp.

Actually, I wonder what are the ftp clients that don't support sftp?
