Create a backup of a file on remote server

I do a lot of editing of files, and currently to make a copy of a file before I edit it, I do this:

  1. Switch to c:\temp
  2. Copy file from remote to temp
  3. Rename it locally to filename.ext.backup
  4. Re-upload to server

Would be great if I could just ctrl+drag a file on the remote view to create a copy of a file.

Or right-click and "Create backup" which will just copy a file and put .backup on the end of it.

Unfortunately the FTP protocol does not provide any way to copy files remotely.

No, I realise this, I just thought that it might be worth creating a procedure which would copy the file to %temp% and then copy it back under a different name.
