Default Value



RootDirectory specifies the root of the SFTP server ('/'). If a value is provided, the class will handle all requests by doing all file operations itself, but the events will still give you the opportunity to override the default values/operations as necessary.

If a value is not provided, all events must be handled appropriately to ensure correct operation.
