Likelihood to Recommend

Cyberduck

Any time you need or want to use an ftp client, an app such as Cyberduck is perfectly suited. I feel it works best when you're working with another business or vendor. If you need to send files to a client that are too large for email, I typically use WeTransfer, but mainly because you don't need to sign in to use that.

Great for failing hard drives that need to be cloned (like to SSDs) and for moving computer data to dissimilar hardware.
Not great when you're in a hurry and you need to know exactly how long it will take to clone a drive. You would use a different cloning software at that point (Acronis).

Pros

Cyberduck

  • File uploads are exceptionally easy. Just pick the server you want to upload something to, and drag/drop the file(s). Simple.
  • File downloads are also easy--just right-click on a file and click the "Download" option.
  • It is also easy to create folders on your servers. It works the same way as creating new folders on your local machine.

Paragon Hard Disk Manager

  • Clone partitions or entire drives.
  • Change drive from standard to dynamic or dynamic to standard.

Cons

Cyberduck

  • When entering incorrect information, it can be difficult to realize what's not working.
  • The ability to see only one "layer" while navigating can be limiting.

Paragon Hard Disk Manager

  • If it's installed to a CD it takes forever to boot to it. Better off a USB stick.
  • It takes a very long time to clone a failing drive (understandably) and you have no idea how long it will take. Estimated times are not accurate.

I really like the basic interface and folder like structure. It makes me feel like I'm in a regular folder window on my Mac. Navigation is simple. The toolbar is customizable to be able to add or remove icons to improve the simplicity and ease of use of the application. The app is very simply designed, which I appreciate.

Developers and testers of Cybderduck seem to be a close-knit, active community, and proud of their product. Cyberduck's main website has an easy-to-use forum where any question can be asked, as well as a well-developed catalogue of FAQs. I have visited help pages for other applications that have sometimes had a contemptuous attitude from a small coterie of administrators, but Cyberduck's community is not at all like that.

Alternatives Considered

Cyberduck

While these other tools I've used will get the job done, neither of them were (a) as easy to set up and configure as Cyberduck, and (b) were as effective at ongoing management of files with my remote server. I think it's because Cyberduck has very specific configurations that are tailored to the remote server I am using, making it a much more seamless experience.

Paragon Hard Disk Manager

Paragon is better in some areas, worse in others.
Better at cloning unhealthy drives. Worse at quick clones.
Acronis is a little more intuitive. Paragon has some dialog that I don't think translates well to English.
