I recently setup a Windows 2008 R2 server on Amazon EC2. I now want to move an application I created on my local desktop to this server. However, having never done this before I have no idea how to transfer files from my local desktop to the online server. What is the standard convention for transferring files from local machine to the server?

How would you transfer files to any remote computer? Do that. @MDMarra's answer has specifics suggestions but that's the gist - the same way you'd transfer files to any remote machine. –  HopelessN00b Aug 28 '12 at 21:58

Map a drive, share the drive via RDP, use FTP(S), etc.

Your second question is unanswerable. Read the How To Ask section of the site, please.
