We have SFTP enabled in our Linux Server. Our .Net Application / Project transfers file to the Linux Server.
We expect the file to be located in \home\myfolder\folder\subfolder\. - Just a Absolute file path.

But Application transfers the file to the Root directory of the user.

\home\<User_Id>\

Is that the restriction of SFTP in the Linux Server ?
