      Remarks

      Both relative and absolute paths can be provided to the SetCurrentDirectory method to change the SFTP server's current working folder. 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.

      The current working folder can be retrieved via the GetCurrentDirectory method.
