The program 'Ipswitch WS_FTP' is incompatible with Classic Shell on Windows 8.1. Even disabling Classic Shell will still prevent Windows from moving/copying files. There are a lot of free FTP programs out there, so we can live without Ipswitch - just thought I'd let people know in case they were trying to figure out what had messed up their computer.

To help us troubleshoot your issue, please tell us what exactly do you mean 'incompatible with Classic Shell'? Which part of Classic Shell - the Start Menu, Explorer addons or IE addons? How are you 'disabling Classic Shell'?

If the Classic Explorer component is causing issue for a particular program, you can either:
1. Make sure that the Explorer enhancements for overlay icon and file operation are enabled only for Explorer.
2. Whitelist or blacklist apps in the Registry using the EXE/process name. You can enable or disable Classic Explorer for individual processes using the 2 registry settings "ProcessWhiteList" and "ProcessBlackList". See the Help file for more details on where to add these values. If you add Ipswitch WS_FTP's EXE to the blacklist, Classic Explorer component will not load for that app at all so there will be no issues.

I am a Windows enthusiast and helped a little with Classic Shell's testing and usability/UX feedback.
