I'm using winSCP 4.18 to connect to my newly purchased remote server with sftp-3. I'm a noob using a dedicated server. The server has 4 separate drives. These drives are located on the same level as the root folder. My provider has set things up so that I have separate ftp & http access to each drive.

I will need to be able to transfer files from one drive to another from time to time. When I attempt to move files, I get a general error 4 message. Not much help there. Is there a work around?

I have some limited shell experience and have transferred files from one remote server to another. But, I am stumped as to how I might set up the command to transfer form one drive to another on the same server.

Please read FAQ for the error.

If you have shell access, you may use "cp" command (providing it is unix-based server).
