I will be covering both the part so it depends on you which one is good for you, I normally use FileZilla.

Using FileZilla :

First open the FileZilla and go to File >> Site Manager and add New Site here. It will ask you for some values so put the below mentioned values in that respective fields :



  • Host : The WiFi URL you got from SwiFTP (without port number).
  • Post : The port number (probably 2121).
  • Logon Type : Normal.
  • User : Enter your SwiFTP username.
  • Password : Enter your SwiFTP Password.

Now press the ok button and connect it, there are chances that it will not get connected in first attempt so try it for 2-3 time and make sure the WiFi and SwiFTP is running. once it’s connected it will show you all the directories/folders of your android phone and just drag and drop your files from PC to Android Phone and it will get transferred quickly. see the below screenshot of FileZilla :
