You need extra software for a Secure/SSH File Transfer service on Windows. Windows server does not have a system component for that.

E.g. FileZilla Server.
you can find many videos on youtube on the same issue
You may find running a standard LAMP Stack server somewhere for things like SFTP + HTTPS will be far easier than using Windows.

If you have unlimited time + budget, use Windows.

Use Linux (LAMP) if you'd like to install software for any use, which works first time, 100% of the time.

If you go this route, consider Ubuntu Bionic (5 years of updates).
You would need a third-party SFTP server.
See list of SFTP servers on site.

Some of them are really easy to set up.

For example Buru SFTP Server:

- download and unzip installation package.
- open the console and run:
buru user add myuser --password mypassword --rootdir c:\data
buru run

Open in new window

Alternatively you can run it as a windows service
buru user add myuser --password mypassword --rootdir c:\data
buru svc install
buru svc start

Open in new window
