Find SFTP Client software to automate Scheduled file transfers

Hi EE,

Can anyone recommend an SFTP client to automate Scheduled file transfers, that doesn't require scripting and doesn't cost over $500 USD for a professional license? 

Can't find much on Google any assistance is welcome.

Thank you.

Why the aversion to scripting?  That's a strange restriction for any peice of software that you want to automate on a schedule.  You're basically looking for software that reinvented the wheel with their own scheduler AND you don't want them to charge you for it.  I won't be surprised if no such beast exists. 
Although I agree with Cliff about creating perhaps a powershell script and using task scheduler. But I also understand if you are trying to make this work for non technical types, that can be confusing.

I wonder if you  would be best off looking at backup software.

Even if your specific scenario is not covered by the script wizard, in most cases you can find a sample script that is close enough to what you need:
