huh? Easy... right click anywhere in the remote host window and on the popup
select "new", then "folder"... just like you do in Windoze. No problem!

Sorry, we don't want users logging into our servers with passwords in
cleartext, because if someone intercepts them they now have at least a login
on the machine. Non root of course, but why give them a "leg up". WinSCP
does support SSH (as well as traditional non-ssh connections) and is totally
free. It is at http://winscp.vse.cz/eng/
