I can log onto WinSCP. I can transfer small files successfully. BUT when attempting to transfer a large folder containing several large files, some files are transferred and then I get the error message saying "remote failed to answer for "x" seconds". After exiting this screen, Message states copy failed from remote . ."

Thank you for your assistance.
Happy Holidays.

Does this happen on upload or download? What shell is your default one? Can you try to specify some other shell on Shell tab of login dialog (/bin/bash for example)? Maybe even try to change you default shell (to BASH preferably).
