Additionally, there is winscp, http://winscp.sourceforge.net/eng/ which 
is a windows scp and sftp intereface, optionally importing it's setting 
from putty.

As a pre-warning, to avoid chasing the bugs i did when i decided to use 
sftp, sftp and scp require a clean login, so if you for instance run a 
shell script from your .profile (or similar), make sure it only runs on 
interactive logins.
