users, question:

I never played around with my TRAMP configuration and always used /ssh: with x-f and just Dired to the host.

I want to download folders of flac files to work (large files, each one is around 20MB).

I understand I can simply use /scp: instead of /ssh: and it works just the same.

a. Is this correct or it's not considered good practice in Emacs, and why?
b. Is there a built-in option to automatically configure it to switch to scp when I try to transfer?


the default ssh transfer with the compression is too slow, and also doesn't show progress bar. I'd like it to behave a bit more like "regular" scp via terminal.
