Building your own FTP (file transfer Protocol) Portable can be one of the easiest and most convenient solutions to transfer file through a private or public network without limitations and restrictions typically found with most cloud storage services.

There are also many benefits running your FTP Client Software. For example, it's private, and you have absolute control. It's fast (depending on your internet connection speeds), and there is virtually no limits on the amount and type of data you can store.

Also, you don't have restrictions on file sizes either, which means that you can transfer something as small as a text file or a 1000GB Computer backup, and you can even create multiple accounts to let friends and family access or store content remotely too.

You'll find many third-party Utility on the internet to build a file transfer Server, but Windows includes an FTP server feature that you can set up without the need to resource to other solutions.
