WinSCP is a popular free SFTP and FTP client for Windows. Moreover, WinSCP is a powerful multi-functional tool that will improve your productivity.
WinSCP can copy files between a local and remote computer using multiple protocols: FTP, FTPS, SCP, SFTP or WebDAV. On the one hand, WinSCP offers an easy to use graphical user interface; you can choose between Windows Explorer look and tabbed twin-panel interface like Norton commander. On the other hand, advanced users can automate WinSCP functionality using .NET assembly or simple batch file scripting.
You will use WinSCP for all common operations with files. You can start editing a file directly from WinSCP, either using WinSCP internal text editor or using integration with your favorite external text editor. WinSCP operations are not limited to individual files; WinSCP offers several ways to synchronize your remote and local directories.
After connecting to a site you can choose to store site information for repeated access, WinSCP can even share site settings with another popular open source tool PuTTY. WinSCP integrates also with Pageant (PuTTY authentication agent) for full support of public key authentication with SSH.
Admins love WinSCP support for portable operation using a configuration file instead of registry entries, suitable for operation from removable media.
A comprehensive WinSCP documentation is freely accessible at http://winscp.net . This site hosts also a very active user forum for support and feature requests.
WinSCP is available in English and many other languages.
WinSCP is an open source software distributed free of charge under the terms of the GNU General Public License.

I can use it to transfer files easily and can also send command.
Muitos bons recursos, uma ferramenta indispensável.
I'm using with FileZilla Server.
Some(MOST) FTP client does not support FZS's security settings (you'll get an error) but WinSCP supports all of them.
I use it a lot
The option to auto sync my computer with the remote server is great
Okay, been using wSCP for some time now and this app is definately the best free (s)FTP client out there.
Probably even better than most of commercial ones.
I use WinSCP to establish a SSH connection with my jailbroken iPod. It does everything I expect of it, so that's good enough for me.
Great app. The only thing i don't like is that log is in separate window.
Better than Filezilla anyway.
Wow. This is way better than FileZilla! Look at all the fancy buttons...
winscp is orders of magnitude more reliable than filezilla. filezilla is a joke and has been for the last 5 versions
Works well, solid UI, plenty of options. I can't recommend this app enough. After a few weeks of trouble from another open source ftp client, I tried WinSCP and fell in love.
the app now comes with opencandy, while its an option, it still creates a folder
I dont trust free apps that do this
Note this comment is from 2012! As of 2015 there is nothing bundled with WinSCP!
