"WinSCP is an open source free SFTP client, SCP client, FTPS client and FTP client for Windows. Its main function is file transfer between a local and a remote computer. Beyond this, WinSCP offers scripting and basic file manager functionality." In short it is a pretty essential tool along with Putty if you have any/many server/s to manage from your windows operating system.
