Functionally, to an end user who posts here, they are the same thing. I think you'd be pretty hard pressed to find a server which runs only SCP, and not SFTP.
Also: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secure_copy "For example, WinSCP defaults to the SFTP protocol. Even when operating in SCP mode, clients like WinSCP are typically not pure SCP clients, as they must use other means to implement the additional functionality (like the ls command)... More comprehensive tools for managing files over SSH are SFTP clients."
