Mounting Remote folder over ssh as drive in windows

Most of the times we want to mount remote folder as a drive in windows. Although windows provide a good mount feature, its some not possible to do so due to firewall restrictions. Also mounting drives from different OS such as Ubuntu/Fedora in windows is not inbuilt.. Here NetDrive comes in help, its free for non-commercial use. It can mount drive over FTP/SFTP and is great to use. Although FTP is a much faster than SFTP (FTP over SSH), but is unsecure. Just install a FTP or SSH server, configure default  foder, and use netdrive to do the rest :).
