The easiest way to upload files to a Droplet is to use SFTP. Checkout this tutorial for all the information:

I’d suggest looking at Cyberduck or Filezilla if you are in need of a graphical SFTP client for use on the desktop.

SFTP is a secure way to transfer files between local and remote servers. Much more secure than FTP, this protocol uses an SSH tunnel to establish a connection and uses encryption to transfer files in an interactive session.
