How to exchange files between Windows and Raspberry Pi - WinSCP

In addition to be able to control the Raspberry from a Windows PC, you sometimes need to exchange files between the two systems. There are two protocols based on SSH for this, SCP (Secure CoPy) and SFTP (SSH file transfer protocol). These protocols are used to exchange files securely with a system using SSH and are equivalent, though SFTP is more recent..

WinSCP can use both protocols from Windows.

In the main interface you can choose between SFTP and SCP protocols, specify the IP address of the Raspberry Pi, the user "pi" and the password.

Once connected, you can browse in the Windows system on the left side and in the Linux system on the right side and exchange files between them by drag and drop.
