WinSCP is an open source SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol) and SCP (Secure CoPy) client for Windows using SSH (Secure SHell).

The programs main function is safe copying of files between a local and a remote computer. Beyond this basic function, WinSCP manages some other actions with files.

WinSCP can do all basic operations with files, such as copying and moving (to and from a remote computer). It also allows you to rename files and folders, create new folders, change properties of files and folders, and creating symbolic links and shortcuts. Most operations can be done recursively for files in folders. In some cases optionally (changing of file properties), in all other cases it's compulsory (copying, moving, deleting).

By using WinSCP it is possible to connect to a SSH (Secure SHell) server with SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol) or SCP (Secure Copy Protocol) service, mainly to UNIX machines. SFTP is standard part of SSH2 package. SCP is standard part of SSH1 package. Both protocols can be run even on the latter SSH version. WinSCP supports both SSH1 and SSH2.

WinSCP is licensed as freeware and is therefore free to download, use and keep.
