    I am looking for a way to do offline backups of my VPS to a Windows
    workstation. In my quest I noticed that WinSCP can do unattended file
    copies, and have autoresume. So, what do you think of using this tool?

    I use it all the time and it works fine. Speed can be an issue depending on your connection.

    I'd take a look at using rsync using cygwin (there's even a cwrsync). Better bandwidth utilization using rsync...
