      Retrieves the current working directory of the SFTP server.

      Syntax

      public override string GetCurrentDirectory()

      Return Value

      A string representing the SFTP server's current directory. The path returned is an absolute path that can be used with the SetCurrentDirectory to go directly to this directory regardless of the current working directory.

      Remarks

      The SFTP server's current working folder is used by the SFTP server as the base folder from which to perform file operations such as obtaining folder contents, receiving, sending and deleting files, changing the current folder, etc. It can be changed using the SetCurrentDirectory method.
