Veeam released a public beta of FastSCP a couple of days ago. I downloaded the beta and installed it. It looks pretty cool so far.

FastSCP 3.0 FAQ (from the forum)

Q: Do I need to switch ESXi into “unsupported” mode and enable additional service console daemons in order to be able to use FastSCP v3?
A: No, FastSCP v3 does not rely on ESXi service console components. Instead, it uses VMware file management API to copy files.
Q: Are 64bit OS supported?
A: Officially, 64bit OS are not supported. However, but I’ve been running FastSCP successfully on a 64bit Vista since day 1. The only issue I have run into so far, is a COM error appearing when trying to copy the file between two datastores. Copying from and to the local computer works fine.
Q: I am new user. How do I copy files to my ESXi server?
A: First, you need to add the source and target servers to the interface via Add Server command. Note that your local computer is already there. Then, you have two options:
– Copy interactively: drag and drop, or copy and paste the required file or folder (similarly to how you copy files in the Windows Explorer).
– Copy using scheduled file copy job (if you want to schedule file copy for off-hours).
