The Status Bar will always keep you apprised of FTP Explorerís actions. The left-most portion of the status bar displays short informative statements and descriptions of the programís activities during its various connection, or file transfer operations.
Perhaps the most useful feature of the Status Bar is the numeric indicator that displays how much data is being transferred between the local machine and the server. This indicator becomes active for downloads or uploads that are not performed in the background (see Transfer Options for more information on background file transfers). The value displayed here at any given time is the amount of data that has been transferred to or from the computer during the current operation.
