Hello!

Having such a problem.

When I connect to my hosting server WinSCP opens my account root dir. I try to go up for a 1 dir on a dir tree, but permission for me to open it is denied. So nothing is shown after changing the dir.
And now I want to go down (return) to my root dir and I cannot do this because there is nothing shown in the current forbidden dir.
Also in Dir ierarchy drop down list there is already no my dir either.

What should I do to get back? Ecept reconnecting of course. Smile

Thanks in advance.

I you are using norton command interface, you should still see ".." link. In both interfaces there is "parent directory" button on toolbar and in menu. Also read documentation.

No. I want to get back to a child dir, not parent.

I'll try 2 rephrase my first post.

I using norton style.

As I understand in forbodden dor there is not possible to see it's contents. So I cannot go bach to my "root" dir.

Ok, previously I've understood that "by down" you mean "to parent directory". Now I understand that you mean "to child directory", do you?

To go to child directory that you cannot see in the list, you may use either directory history (back/forward buttons) or you need to type in path manually (open directory command) or bookmark you account root directory or use "home directory" button. Plenty of options Smile
