This site explains it pretty well. Basically just map it as a network drive.

The following are the steps to map the FTP site as a drive on your computer which in turn can be opened with Windows Explorer.

  1. Open the Control Panel and go to Internet Options
  2. Go to the Advanced tab and under Browsing make sure that Enable FTP folder view (outside of Internet Explorer)
  3. Scroll down to Use Passive FTP (for Firewall and DSL modem compatibility.) and make sure that it's checked.
  4. Go to Computer and at the top click Map Network Drive
  5. Type in the address of the FTP site
  6. Type in the login credentials
  7. You should now be able to access that FTP as a drive within Windows Explorer.
