Mapping to Windows Drives

It would be nice to be able to map a particular remote SCP directory to a windows drive. It would make working with SCP seamless and simple. There was a product, the name of it slips my mind right now, but it allowed me to map a drive to a FTP session. It was wonderful, but no encrypted...

Mapping Drives

I've seen this feature requested several times within this fourm. It's a great idea. I think the product you're thinking about (that maps FTP sessions to remote windows drives, is Webdrive. It's a sweet little product... Hopefully WinSCP will incorporate this feature soon too...

Did a little research on this myself. Turns out you need the DDK, which you can only download with an MSDN subscription. I found the source for a RAMDrive which works very similarly and was going to use that to figure out how exactly to do it.

Can you send me a link to RAMdrive sources?

Ramdisk link

Appears to be based on the sample drive from MS DDK documentation. It seems you can get MS to send you the DDK for free, but the shipping is $15.

I have to investigate it further, however it seems that this is not, what I need. The RAMDrive driver just provides storage to Windows, which uses it to store FAT filesystem. So it is too low-level. What I have to do is to emulate the actual filesystem. In other words, RAMdrive read/writes bytes, while I need to read/write files.
