Tree views

WinSCP should have an alternative for tree view position. For instance in Windows Explorer tree view is on the left side of the file list. I think it would be a better position than above file list. Computer display has more space horizontally than vertically.

Yes, Explorer interface was better for me. Thank you.

Another thing about trees: program assumes a directory in tree view have no subdirectories when its content hasn't yet been fetched. Not until you have loaded the directory it can be expanded. In other FTP clients this is implemented opposite way - all directories have subdirectories by default. That way user can expand a directory right away not needing to load directory first. It makes browsing a lot easier.
