A very cool feature is to have a hard drive letter mapped to your public server.
SSHFS allows to map a drive letter on your windows machine to a server via ssh.
Check this application ...
Install the libraries first and then the sshfs package.
Basically it is going to ask you a server IP and user/password ...and at the end the map drive letter.
Remember SSH filesystem is not the fastest way but it is very secure and easy to set up.
