  • 15 - PPK Blob
  • 16 - XML File
  • 17 - XML Blob
  • 18 - JWK File
  • 19 - JWK Blob

CertStorePasswordStringIf the certificate store is of a type that requires a password, this registry setting is used to specify that password in order to open the certificate store.

Determines whether or not to forcefully rename a file if the destination file already exists. By default, renaming a file will fail if the destination file already exists.

If enabled and the destination file already exists, the destination file will be renamed to have a temporary extension as a backup. The original file will be renamed to the destination file and the temporary file will be deleted. If the rename operation fails for any reason the temporary file is renamed back to the destination file so effectively no changes occur when the rename fails.

  • 0 - Disabled (default)
  • 1 - Enabled

HostStringContains the remote host that SFTP Drive will connect to.
PasswordStringContains the password for the SFTP server.
PortDWORDContains the port on the remote host that SFTP Drive will connect to.
QueryAvailableSpaceDWORDWhether to query the remote server for available space when connecting. Possible values are:

RemoteRootTypeDWORDDetermines how the drive decides what folder to use as the root of the drive.
  • 0 - Server Root (/)
  • 1 - User's home folder (/home)
  • 2 - Specified folder (use RemoteRoot)
SecurityKeyAccountStringAn opaque token holding information about the certificate selected from the security key. This value is created by the application and should not be set manually.
SecurityKeyNameStringA friendly name of the chosen key. This is populated after selecting a key. For instance "PIV AUTH pubkey"
SecurityKeyPINStringThe encrypted PIN of the security key.
SecurityKeyPKCS11LibPathStringThe path to the library which implements the PKCS11 interface. This may be provided by the security key vendor, or may be an alternative implementation like OpenSC. For instance "C:\Program Files\OpenSC Project\OpenSC\pkcs11\onepin-opensc-pkcs11.dll"
SecurityKeySavePINDWORDWhether to save the PIN. If saved, the PIN is encrypted.

The CA signed client public key used when authenticating. When authenticating via public key authentication this setting may be set to the CA signed client's public key. This is useful when the server has been configured to trust client keys signed by a particular CA. For instance: AAAAB3NzaC1yc2EAAAADAQABAAAB...")

The algorithm such as in the above string is used as part of the authentication process. To use a different algorithm simply change this value. For instance all of the following are acceptable with the same signed public key:


UseIPv6StringIf "False", the drive will use IPv4 to connect. If "True", the drive will use IPv6.
