3. In the main CuteFTP window, go into Tools > Global Options and click on the Connection tab.
Change the default values of Global max concurrent transfers and Per site max concurrent transfersto a higher value, such as 50 & 20, as shown below.

Step 3

4. While still in Global Options, click the Transfer tab. Change the value for the number of threads to 8, as shown below. Click OK to save the new settings.

5. Connect to your server. Once connected, right-click a file or folder you wish to download and select Download Advanced > Multi-part download > MAX (8 parts)
