    The other day I created an FTP server for file sharing, I map it to a network drive and Windows warns me that FTP is not secure. I look into it and decide to upgrade to SFTP instead, then I find out windows cannot map SFTP natively. So, my question is what is the best solution to map the SFTP server to a a drive letter? I have already tried Swish and it does not map to a drive letter. Also, I created a feature request in the Windows Feedback Hub that you can upvote to hopefully have it added soon, just open the Windows Feedback Hub and search SFTP in All Categories.

    I doubt Windows will add SFTP to mapped drive support anytime soon unfortunately.

    There's a few third part options however:

    ExpanDrive
    NetDrive
    win-sshfs

    I don't know which is "the best", try them all and let us know :)

    Thanks for the reply and software to look at. I hope other people want this too and upvote my feedback so I won't need to use a third party solution.
