Topic "Windows Cygwin SSH navigation"

WinSCP seems to interoperate with the Cygwin version of sshd, but when you log in you land in the cygwin version of your home directory. Cygwin "mounts' the real drives as /cygdrive/c (etc.) and also accepts C: in the cd command. However these don't show in the directory listing under WinSCP. Is there an easier way to navigate to the real disks than using the menu 'Commands/Open Terminal' and typing in the cd command there?

Oops, never mind. I see that the open folder icon on the right edge of the screen (winscp 2.2) lets you type in a destination instead of selecting from a list and using /cygdrive/c there works.

Just create the directory /cygdrive
