what is the difference between 'Binary' and 'ASCII' modes of file transfers. Which should we select.

use binary for zipped files, images, everything that's not text, ascii for text only, most (non window$) clients will auto select, in windows you need to specify bin for binary for files or else you end up gibberish.
[glowpurple]manually editing your config files can break them. If this happens, you get to keep both pieces. [/glowpurple]

use ASCII unless you have to have an exact copy then use binary... I dont know why but I know normal transfers are in ASCII not binary. Use the automatic setting if you can or just ASCII
