Hi,
I've installed freeSSHd, added a user 'bla' and when I connect using WinSCP I'll get a screen asking for my password but when I log in I'll get the error showing below. When I connect with Putty I can log in and I'll get D:\
In freeSSHd I put, in the SFTP tab, the home directory to D:\bla but it doesn't work.

Rights for the D:\ and D:\bla folder are both read & execute but it doesn't help.
Using administrator for login gives the same errors.

OS: Windows server 2008 R2
WinSCP: 4.3.4 (Build 1428) tried 5.1.4 (Build 3020) with same result
freeSSHD: 1.2.4

External firewall settings: OK for port 22
Windows firewall settings: OK for port 22

What am I doing wrong?

I can connect fine using WinSCP 4.3.4 and the latest version of freeSSHd.
Make sure the account that runs freeSSHd has an access to the D:\

Also you should definitely upgrade WinSCP.
