When there is hell load of files to be transferred, copy pasted, moved from server to local directory etc. the best is to use a FTP client. Especially for mac users, it comes handy in dragging the files and pushing into the client and easily get things done.
For simpler file transfers etc. we can use the file manager through cPanel when we don't feel the necessity to use the whole FTP application for a small file transfer.
