Broken on Samsung Lollipop Excellent app. Note that this app cannot write to external SD without root if you are on KitKat - this is an Android restriction, and not a fault with the app (use internal storage as a workaround). If the app breaks after upgrading to Lollipop, try uninstalling and reinstalling app.

No Support Don't purchase this thing. It doesn't work as advertised. I purchased and still don't have write access to the external card. Requested support - twice - and nothing.

The best and most reliable ftp server app (and I tried a lot of them) syncback so is able to backup my phone and maintain date and time stamps on the files so subsequent backups only transfer modified or new files
