I'm trying to find, as I state in the very long title, a tool that will allow me to mount Linux filesystems over sftp as Windows drives.

I've found a bunch of tools to do this, namely NetDrive, ExpanDrive, and WinDrive, but none of these are:

  • Free, and
  • Compatible with Windows 7, 64-bit

If there is some way to do this over Cygwin, that is an option, as I have Cygwin installed for a bunch of its development tools.

Does anyone know of a good program for doing this? Thanks!

Dokan SSHFS is a free tool to mount a directory over SFTP as a drive.

As far as I know it should be compatible with 64-bit Windows.

Dokan seems to work great - the v0.6.0 version apparently has no installer, but it's fine that way. Thanks! – Jonathan Chan Jul 6 '11 at 0:39
