I can't find the files I "get" from an sftp server. I'm using Windows and running sftp.exe from the PuTTY suite. When I type lpwd to see the local directory, it shows it but I never see the files I used "get" on

lpwd just prints the current local working directory; it doesn't show directory contents. Use !dir for that.

Thanks.. but the file isn't in that directory either – babonk Nov 30 '10 at 0:12

Look at

C:\Users\_your_user_name\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\PuTTY
