A good point was brought up by both Nicolas Raoul and Franck Dernoncourt, using the FileZilla Server Edition for copying and pasting data on one server requires the data to temporally be downloaded locally and then reuploaded, which will take significantly more time and not all that convenient either. Using a different FTP server with a module will circumvent this issue. To do this you'll need ProFTPD along with mod_copy and an FTP client that supports this protocol, I recommend WinSCP. All of these tools can be installed on Windows, ProFTP, however, will need to be installed through Cygwin.
ProFTPD grew out of the desire to have a secure and configurable FTP
server, and out of a significant admiration of the Apache web server.
When the Project began, the most commonly used server was wu-ftpd.
While wu-ftpd provides excellent performance and is generally a good
product, it lacks numerous features found in newer Win32 FTP servers
and has a poor security history. Many people, including the developers
who work on ProFTPD, had spent a great deal of time fixing bugs and
hacking features into wu-ftpd. Unfortunately, it quickly became clear
that a complete redesign was necessary in order to implement the
configurability and features desired.
In addition to wu-ftpd, there are a few of other FTP servers available
which are designed to be light-weight and secure at the expense of
configurability. For example, Troll FTP is an excellent FTP daemon
which is considerably more secure and less resource-intensive than
wu-ftpd. Unfortunately, while it is quite suitable for basic FTP
services, it does not offer the feature set required for more
sophisticated FTP sites.
ProFTPD is not a hack based on any other server, it's an independent
source tree from the ground up. A number of well known and high
traffic sites use ProFTPD.
The mod_copy module implements SITE CPFR and SITE CPTO commands (analogous to RNFR and RNTO), which can be used to copy files/directories from one place to another on the server without having to transfer the data to the client and back.
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
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
WinSCP is available in English and many other languages. WinSCP is an
open source software distributed free of charge under the terms of the
