It also allows you to rename files and folders, create new folders, change properties of files and folders. One of two selectable program interfaces allows user to manage files even on local computer. Most operations can be done recursively for files in folders.

This is a straight forward SFTP/FTP utility. I have been using this for a few years now. I use it for standard FTP, as well as Secure FTP sites. It's very reliable.

Finally the slow upload bug (http://winscp.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=33236) is fixed. :D

Very great program which is reminiscent of Total Commander (another of my favorites) but with benefit of secure file transfers and the ability to automate daily backups e.g. from a linux filesystem onto a windows PC using the windows scheduler. I tried to do the same thing with deltacopy and rsync (that name always sounds a bit dodgy to me) but it was too complicated for my pea-sized brain so WinSCP saved the day!

Kindly ignore the bug about F5 refreshing, that can be done in the explorer interface. It defaults to the commander interface. That was my fault. The rest of the issues I listed below are still prevelant.

I love winscp. It is the one FTP Client that just feels right. That said, I have a few minor issues I feel could be addressed:

1. Allowing for the F5 key to be used, windows convention, for refreshing a folder either local or remote.

2. There is no way to remove something from the queue that I have been able to devise.

3. The pause/suspend functionality does not work very well. I have been able to pause a transfer but never been able to restart it.

4. Auto-resume does not work. I have tried every possible configuration but it does not work. It simply overwrites every file which SUCKS when you are 250MB into a 300MB upload.

Other than that, I highly recommend this client. I would give this a 4.5/5 but there are no half star ratings so a 4/5 it is for now.

tech939 - some of us prefer to use a Windows operating system that does not have a remote on/off switch in the guise of WGA, WinSCP works fine on W2K (for the most part), and so long as the developers of WinSCP support W2K, I will continue to use it.

WinSCP is a very good program.

Great program, just wish it could import ftp settings from other programs.
