I can SFTP into a remote computer's home directory (C:\) just fine, but how do I change to a different drive letter on that same computer (my example is drive Z:\)?

I've tried typing in the remote column:
z:/
/z:
z:
z
Z:
Z:/
/Z:

What am I doing wrong?

I am using both Windows 10 Pro on the Server & client side.

Thanks,[/list]

Remote directory is FreeBSD??

FreeBSD doesn't have letters like C:, D:.
It has passes like: /home, /root/, /mnt.

Yes, you are right (starts in /).

I am using FreeSSHD on the server side and FileZilla on the client side. Hope that answered your question.

First, do not use FreeSSHD, it's buggy and insecure.

Anyway, see:
