"Disklets" lets FTP volumes show as local drives

BinaryNights has released Forklift 2 (v2.0.3), its FTP and file manager software that has been completely rewritten for speed and stability as well as a host of new features, including a Transfer Queue, Coverflow view, a Favorites Manager and both Synclets (buttons to activate manual syncing) and Disklets (remote volumes mounted as local Finder drives, so they are accessible from any application) among others. Version 2.0.3 corrects minor flaws and other bugs.

In addition to the many new features, ForkLift 2 also revamps several of the existing features, including the multiple-renaming feature, the Folder Sync operations and using Regular Expressions in searching and filtering. FTP, SFTP, WebDAV, S3, iDisk, SMB, AFP and NIS are all supported protocols.

The new Transfer Queue allows users to see transfer histories as well as resolve conflicts and reorder files, and facilitates scheduled or paused transfers as well. The new version also introduces Stacks, a way to zip or copy files from many different volumes to a remote folder.

ForkLift 2 is a paid upgrade. Licensed v1.x users can upgrade to v2 for $20, while the program costs $40 new. The company is also offering a new "Family Pack" license that covers all users on all machines in a household for $50. Recent buyers should check with the developer to see if they qualify for a free upgrade to v2.
