 +##ForkLift File Manager
 +
 +ForkLift is free alternative File Manager to Finder that [[https://​itunes.apple.com/​us/​app/​forklift-file-manager-and-ftp-sftp-webdav-amazon-s3-client/​id412448059?​mt=12|is available]] from the Mac App Store.
 +
 +As the File Fabric exposes open protocols - FTP, SFTP, WebDav and S3, it is possible to directly connect to the File Fabric using the ForkLift App.
 +
 +###To Setup
 +
 +We will use WebDav to demonstrate how  this can be used to connect directly to the File Fabric.
 +
 +First launch Forklift and click the '​connect'​ icon.

 +Choose WebDav and fill in the File Fabric WebDav server and user authentication details:

 +
 +Once this done the account is connected and can be used within Forklift.
 +
 +Other protocols (S3, SFTP, FTP) can also be used in a similar way.
 +
 +## FreeFileSync
 +
 +[[https://​freefilesync.org/​|FreeFileSync]] is a free synchornization App that is able to sync local OSX files to remote FTP/S and SFTP enabled platforms.
 +
 +As the File Fabric'​s protocol Gateway supports both of these protocols it can be used as an alternative synchronization application to the File Fabric'​s desktop Sync App.

 +
 +It is beyond the scope of these documents to fully outline the features and setup but the App is very intuitive and easy to use and setup.
 +
 +Note that if parallel threads are required for speed then the donation ware variant of the App must be used.
