Ah I see now what you meant, thanks for the clarification.  :-)

I jubilated a bit too early in the case of the plinkx method. Even
though it seems to work for config files, for the following archive, of
about 1.4 MB, it failed:

PuTTY: 0.76
GNU Emacs 28.0.50 (build 1, x86_64-w64-mingw32) of 2021-01-15

Copying d:/tmp/tramp/2021-08-11_shard.tar.gz to 
Copy: ‘d:/tmp/tramp/2021-08-11_shard.tar.gz’ to 
‘/plinkx:Prod:/home/vt1/uidg1626/2021-08-11_shard.tar.gz’ failed:
(file-error Writing to process Invalid argument *tramp/plinkx Prod*)

*tramp/plinkx Prod*
FATAL ERROR: Incoming packet was garbled on decryption

With the (default) pscp method above file transfer is working though.

Let's see how the pscp method'll fare in the long run. :-)
