A free and secure FTP and secure FTP client for Windows

A review of WinSCP Portable by Sven Sørensen

WinSCP Portable is the installer-free version of a very capable FTP, SFTP and FTPS client for Windows.

The application interface includes some advanced settings suitable for creating FTP transfers. Its functionality is combined with some very powerful tools that are more suited towards advanced users.

Like other FTP clients, WinSCP Portable features a panel-based layout where the local files that can be transferred appear in the left while remote directory listings and files appear on the right. This facilitates drag-and-drop file transfers.

Current file transfers are visible in the lower portion of the interface of WinSCP Portable with speed of transfer, file size and percentage completed and any errors that might have occurred.

File listings in WinSCP can be filtered in several ways including the file type, file size, last modified date, etc.

WinSCP Portable also includes the PuTTy SSH client which can connect to remote servers with SSH (secure shell).

As a portable application, WinSCP Portable can be executed from most mass storage devices without having to install the program. It makes no changes to the Windows Registry.

All in all, WinSCP Portable is a very capable and useful FTP client which supports secure connections, remote file transfer and more.
