Transferring files from the TCC to your Windows system

Tech Computer Center logo
As of January 2008, the TCC no longer permits file transfers using ftp (File Transfer Protocol). This protocol is not secure for the transfer of sensitive information. Use the sftp protocol, which is password-protected and encrypted.

To transfer files from your Tech Computer Center account to your Windows system, follow these steps.

  1. If you need a good file transfer program, see installing winscp.
  2. If you have a lot of files to transfer, first create an archive file that combines into a single file all the files you want to transfer. See `Making archive files in Windows'.
  3. Use winscp to transfer your archive file, or transfer the files individually if there aren't too many. See Using winscp to transfer files.
  4. If you used an archive file, see `Extracting archive files in Windows'.
