comment What is the best way to copy large files from my workstation to a Windows Server based EC2 instance?
I am going to accept the updated part of your answer, the first part requires more setup than I wanted. Mapping the drives sounds pretty good, although that would require me to expose a little more of my local system to the amazon cloud that I would like...but I guess all things being equal, its the best choice.
