Refresh Drive List

I have removable drives on my system - if I start WinSCP, then add one of these drives, I cannot access it from the pulldown menu. There should be a way to refresh the drive list, or better yet, WinSCP should respond to the "volume added" (or removed) Windows events and add it immediately and automatically to the list.

Hi,

I'm having the same problem. I use a USB flashdrive to carry files between office/home. If you start WinSCP and THEN plug in the flashdrive, the new drive letter (let's say G:) DOES appear in the drop-down list (Norton Commander Style). However, if you select it, WinSCP does NOT switch to it. You can also try "Local" > "Go to drive" and type in "G:", and it won't go there either.

If you close WinSCP and reopen it, the drive is accessible.

Other that this, I've had a great time testing WinSCP. Congrgats on a great application.

Thanks for info. To confirm my guess, please verify that it WORKS with version 3.6.1 and earlier.
