I'm using OpenSSH services and WinSCP client to provide SFTP services. I'm in the testing phase and have discovered that I am able to browse other folders by double-clicking on the up-folder icon in the /cygdrive window. Any recommendations as how to prevent this without disabling access to my default sftp folder?

Ok, I understand that OpenSSH has this feature, however I don't fully understand if this feature is set by default or if I need to change it. Another thought is that my server's local security settings may be causing this problem. It appears that the Everyone group has full access to everything on the drive.
