Hello Owdy and welcome to the forums

I don't think Windows 7 supports sftp connections natively, so yes, you'll have to use a 3rd party program to do it.

There's lots of tools available:

WinSCP :: Free SFTP and FTP client for Windows
PuTTY: a free telnet/ssh client
FileZilla - The free FTP solution

Hope these are of use to you,

Tom

You're most welcome Yeah, there's a sync feature built into WinSCP:

Synchronize Files with FTP Server or SFTP Server :: WinSCP
