How to upload with CrossFTP to Spaces?

Posted July 30, 2019 3.1k views

I’m migrating from AWS S3 to Spaces. I was able to download all my AWS files to my Mac with CrossFTP but stuck on how to get them to Spaces. I did the browser drag and drop but I have over 230 files and every now and then it says file upload error and I have to click restart. I only uploaded 20 files in 6 hours! How can I connect with either CrossFTP or Filezilla not the Pro but the free version or any free software really so I can FTP my files up to Spaces?
