Support to browse drive letters that have been hidden?

I have hidden certain drive letters from showing on Explorer using the registry in:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

Being the registry key:
NoDrives

But because they are hidden from the default file explorer it is also hidden from WinSCP, I understand that I shouldn't be able to see the drive in the drive list, that's what I want, but I should be able to access the drive if I access it manually by entering its letter or the path to a directory inside one of the hidden drives, instead WinSCP does nothing when I try that. Can you please add support or fix this? I'm on Windows 10.

Thank you.

Try using Ctrl+O or choosing Go To > Open Directory from either the Local or Remote menu depending on which side you want. You can type in your desired directory path.

Thanks for your suggestion.
We will see, if more people ask for this.

Btw, the suggestions by @Nilpo cannot work. But you probably know that already.

What you can do is to create a directory symlink on one of the visible drives. Or use an UNC path to access those drives.
