Have you ever wanted to copy files from a Windows computer a Linux device? From Windows 10 to a Raspberry Pi for example? This is the solution for you if you do not have a full understanding of Linux and network shares. Use WinSCP to easily copy files to your Linux environment in a few clicks. WinSCP can functions just like any other FTP/SFTP client however it has a few other features baked in which can really help you transfer files between Windows and Linux. I had to use this piece of software before learning all the intricacies of Linux…Saying that I still need this piece of software every day.

WinSCP is able to handle multiple protocols. More than most clients. You can check out the protocol comparison here.

  • SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol);
  • FTP (File Transfer Protocol);
  • SCP (Secure Copy Protocol);
  • WebDAV (Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning);
  • S3 (Amazon S3).
