Copying web content from Windows

If you're using the Microsoft Windows operating system and have some PHP/HTML/CSS/graphics files that you'd like to copy into your public_html or public_mobile directories, check out the free WinSCP utility. It even integrates with PuTTY's pageant utility if you've setup private key authentication.
