ExtraFTP is a copy and rebrand of FileZilla (an open source, free FTP client). For proof, click here.
All the Extra Software did was make very minor cosmetic modifications like change and reorganize the buttons on the main program window. In form and function, ExtraFTP is exactly FileZilla. What Extra Software is doing with ExtraFTP is illegal.
Since FileZilla is released under the GNU General Public License it is 100% legal to modify FileZilla, rebrand it, and even sell it (although it is extremely shameful and unethical in my eyes to make minor cosmetic modifications, call it your own program, and try to profit off the hard work of the FileZilla development team). What makes the actions of Extra Software illegal is this: as per GPL terms, if you modify, rebrand, and sell any GPL licensed software, you must follow the terms and conditions set by the GPL license. These terms include, but are not limited to:
* A copy of the source code or written instructions about how to get a copy must be included with the software. If the software is able to be downloaded from the internet, the source code must also be available for downloading.
* The license of the software can not be changed or removed. It must always use the GPL.
No where on ExtraFTP or ExtraFTP's page on Extra Software's website do I see it mention ExtraFTP is licensed under the GNU General Public License nor do I see any link to download the source code. Bad, bad, bad! :@
Taking all that into consideration, I am going to put my foot down and refuse to review ExtraFTP. This is very distasteful of Extra Software.
If you need a good FTP client, go for the real deal instead of a rip-off; grab FileZilla.
There is one last thing I want to say before I end this comment. It is inevitable people will come here and bash GOTD for the actions of Extra Software. I believe it is unfair to blame GOTD for this. Less being active FileZilla users, there is no way GOTD could have known ExtraFTP is an illegal rip-off of FileZilla. I myself would not have caught this if I were not a FileZilla fan. While I agree GOTD has messed up in the past on certain issues on some giveaways, today is not really GOTD's fault in my opinion.

FileZilla is the best freeware for FTP no need to pay,
although it is not mentioned it runs on windows 7 as well.

Ok, so after reading Ashraf's comments I thought this was pretty crappy situation today, but I really could use an auto FTP client, I currently use FileZilla but have not had success at setting up auto scheduled transfers, so I thought since that feature is identified I thought I would give it a try. Well so far I can't find anyway to set up auto scheduled transfers with this either, so I went to the website using the Help tab, and it does take you to the website, and they do have a promotion page, but Help -- guess again, nowhere on their site can I find any instance of help related to this application, plenty of entries for their other applications but not this one. That makes me think they did a quick skin job on FileZilla and pushed this out there just to get people to take a look at their name and other products. So for one of the very very few times I am throwing my 2 cents in and saying this one is a big loser at best and at worse maybe even a straight out liar. Sorry GOTD but you dropped the ball today.

On another note, please note that one can ftp files from PC to Host without installing any ftp software. Windows Explorer already has ftp function. You just need to know how to configure it.
Go to "My Network Places", then "Add a network place", then click "See some Examples", then configure ftp://username@yourdomain. the next screen it will prompt for your ftp login password to your host. Key it in and you are done.
Once you get the hang of it, it is simple to configure.
The advantage of ftp with Window Explorer is obvious. Your host directory is just like a mapped remote harddisk to your PC.
