WinFsp, Windows File System Proxy, is a set of software components for Windows computers that allows the creation of user mode file systems. In this sense it is similar to FUSE (Filesystem in Userspace), which provides the same functionality on UNIX-like computers.
Developing file systems is a challenging proposition. Developing file systems for Windows is an order of magnitude more difficult. WinFsp attempts to ease the task of writing a new file system for Windows in the same way that FUSE has done so for UNIX.
Some of the benefits of using WinFsp are listed below:
Very well-tested and stable. Very fast. Strives for compatibility with NTFS. Read about its Compatibility. Easy to understand but comprehensive API. Consult the API Reference. FUSE compatibility layer for native Windows and Cygwin. Signed drivers provided on every release. Available under the GPLv3.

Finally a fully open-source SFTP drive solution for windows. Just install all three: WinFsp, SSHFS-Win and SSHFS-Win Manager, and you'll be up and running in no time. Frictionless, painless, all in GUI.
