I need to set up SFTP on a 2012 server. Does anyone have documentation on properly setting that up? Google search seems scanty on it. Filezilla is an option if that will handle it better. I'd prefer the native, though. Good instructions on either would be much appreciated.

IIS does not supports sftp, it does FTPS which is FTP with SSL encryption.
If you really need SFTP you need third party software like filezilla server.

If you need it for work then FileZilla might not be the best option for SFTP.  Setting up the SFTP part is harder than it needs to be and there is no real support... just search/post in a forum and hope for the best.  You might be better off paying for supported commercial software... especially if it needs to keep working after you move on or up to another job.  This one is not the cheapest but it is nowhere near the most expensive and it has the dead easiest setup that I've used: http://www.robo-ftp.com/help/robo-ftp_server/3.3/sftp_quick_start_guide.htm ... and I've set up quite a few SFTP servers on Windows over the years.

On the other hand, if you need this for a home or hobby then save your money for beer and do it yourself with FileZilla.
