    You could do that yes, there are also various apps in the app store that help you do this as well for example Files and they do a free alternative Files Lite

    ifunbox is a good one and it doesn't use SSH. Doesn't even need to be installed, runs right from the .exe file.

    If you're going to put files in via SSH, I would put them in a folder in /var/mobile/Documents. It just keeps things tidy and out of the system's hair. Like, if you have a backup of something, you can put it in /var/mobile/Documents/backups.

    On Linux with Gnome (and maybe OSX too, not sure) this task is greatly simplified as you could just drop a shortcut on your desktop straight into the directory. You *might* be able to do this in Windows as well with some modification.

    There's a free program called Disk Aid that lets you move files while connected by USB cable to your PC/Mac.
    Of course in order to get the files off you need to have Disk Aid installed on the other PC too.

    I never looked into it, but when I had to store some files when I changed computers, I simply SSH'd them into a custom "Important Files" folder.

    Just on a technicality, the iPod absolutely cannot be used as a hard-drive.

    It's flash memory. XD
