Casual users may find it harder to learn and use.

Our Review:

WinSCP will be suitable for use if you want a SCP (secure copy protocol) client for Windows that uses SSH and offers a rich feature set.

It includes a built-in terminal, can launch Putty directly and allows remote file editing, direct transfer and transfer queuing. It has the ability to limit download speed rates as well.

WinSCP has a portable version available from the developer and is also available as a plugin to two file managers, Altap Salamander and FAR Manager.
