Mapping an sFTP connection to a Windows drive?

I'm looking for a way to map an sFTP connection to a Windows (Vista) drive. In other words, a tool that would add a new drive (let's say N:) to my computer, that would directly point to my remote server via sFTP.

WebDrive seems to be a NetDrive replacement.

I've used a product called "SftpDrive" in the past, it looks like it's been renamed to ExpanDrive these days. It worked pretty well, but it's shareware-y: you can try it for free, but you do have to buy it if you intend to keep using it. If you really need this functionality, though, it does work well.

"I tried a few, and Swish seemed to be one of the best, and it works as a Windows Explorer extension.

Saving opened files back to the server isn't yet implemented though"

"How about setting it up as SSL WebDev drive? At HostGator, there is a Webdisk feature that works quite well. I assume most FTP servers running on Cpanel will have this feature available.
Once you run the provided VBS Script you can map a drive to example:
\\tibserver.websitewelcome.com@ssl@2078"
