About SFTP Drive

Map remote servers as local virtual drives via SFTP.

SFTP Drive helps you securely access remote drives as virtual folders. It allows you to access remote disks over the Web and map them to local drive letters on your machine. You can work with a remote file system as if it were a local disk drive and upload and download files via your favorite file manager. It supports all common directory and file operations such as move, copy, and rename in both Windows UI and the command line.

SFTP Drive Features

  • Convenient Connection Settings - Common connection settings are available on the main screen as soon as you open SFTP Drive. In most cases, you will enter the server address, user, and password and connect. You can also choose from three authentication types: Password, Key-based, or both.
  • Multiple Authentication Types - As mentioned above, you can use password authentication, key-based authentication, or both. Once you select the authentication type, the corresponding fields will be enabled. If you choose to use a key, you have these choices:
    • Authentication agent: Both PuTTY Agent and SSH-Agent are supported.
    • Load from file.
    • Security Token or Smart Card.
  • Multiple Profiles - You can keep several profiles for different users and servers. Each profile saves connection credentials and any settings you have specified.
  • Advanced Settings and Command Line Support - Many advanced settings to configure the way you connect to your server are available. These options are conveniently saved with the profile or you can specify them when using SFTP Net Drive from the command line. All are well documented.
