I am using both on my PC but to be honest I didn't know which is better. Can you give any thoughts on these programs? Which one is better and why?

WinSCP seems better but I didn't use both. I usually use Putty and Cute FTP pro to manage files on my hosting.

FileZilla, it seems very user-friendly and accurate error messages are seen during the connection errors and runs fast too.

Last 5 years I'm using Filezilla... Why? Dunno.. Never had issues and it was good for the things needed to be done.

FileZilla and just because it does the job, I've used it for many years and don't really need to change!

I love to try FileZilla every time. This software is smooth and well customized for FTP operation.

I installed both these programs but I prefer Cute FTP pro and use it more to manage files on my server.

You should try "FTP Manager Pro" . FTP Manager Pro is the quickest and easiest to use client. It performs file transfer between PC folders, FTP servers, Cloud storage, Android mobile devices and more. There are many excellent features such as automatic resume, multiple concurrent file transfer, SFTP and FTPS support etc. I can also transfer directly between Android devices, even when they are using mobile connections outside the office. The app is free to use for all connection types except the cloud transfers. Much better than FileZilla or WScp in my opinion.
