One feature of this program is it supports drag and drop which makes it easy to move, send, and receive files. You also have the background option which let you do the send/receive in the background as separate tasks which allows you to go on to another FTP site or to a different area in the same one while the files are being transferred. Another feature is if it isn't able to log on to the remote server it will prompt you to choose to retry once, indefinitely, or the number of times you choose. FTP Control also has a location line where you can enter a server address to connect to without creating a profile it also allows you to save them as a profile or to reuse them later.

The schedule wizard makes creating new scheduled downloads and uploads easy. It will queue them and keep trying if the upload or download fails.
