SSHFS-Win Alternatives

    SSHFS-Win is described as 'minimal port of SSHFS to Windows. Under the hood it uses Cygwin for the POSIX environment and WinFsp for the FUSE functionality'. There are more than 10 alternatives to SSHFS-Win for Windows, Mac, Linux and Xfce. The best alternative is Mountain Duck. It's not free, so if you're looking for a free alternative, you could try sshfs or WinFsp. Other great apps like SSHFS-Win are ExpanDrive (Paid), WebDrive (Paid), win-sshfs (Free, Open Source) and SFTP Drive (Freemium).
