On the import sites tool i can see the import for putty and filezilla but Ws_ftp is not there.. is there an easy way to bring that file into view.. I can probably find it and put it into whereever it might be able to see it but not sure if its a simple search method as most of my sites are in ws_ftp and i really need to junk that piece of trash and start paying WinScp that annual fee.. it has got to be one of the worst ftp program in the business and I alwsys loved it before... but is no comparison to WinSCP..
Would hate to manually type in a hundred site by hand..

Unfortunately, WinSCP does not support importing from WS_FTP.

Thanks maybe i will see if i can convert it into the filezilla format and import it as filezilla.. aince WinSCP has no simple way to import since its all in a non readable format.. so no easy way to manually add the stuff to winscp.. i suppose the reason is an attempt to keep the passwords secure which makes sense..

You can convert the password in an unencrypted form and have WinSCP encrypt it:
