I'm looking for a program that can mount SFTP folders on Windows, that:
- Is gratis and open-source
- Runs natively on Windows (10)
- Mounts to a drive, not to a folder
- Supports password-encrypted SSH2 (RSA) keys
Haven't used windows in 16 years but I recall that Explorer (file manager) could handle protocols it knows about like FTP. if that is still the case, WinSCP will integrate with it/register as a protocol handler.
There is also sshfs, and a version for Windows is available. This will (according to docs) use a drive letter.
Winfsp http://www.secfs.net/winfsp/download/ and its associated sshfs driver is free and opensource.
One advantage was being able to saturate a 1 gigabit link at 80 megabytes per second.
It doesn't seem to support key based logins yet, but password based logins work perfectly.

SFTP Drive is free for non-commercial use. https://www.nsoftware.com/sftp/drive/
An easy-to-use utility that mounts remote file systems as Windows drives via SFTP. Once connected, you can browse and work with files as if they were stored on your local machine.
As for authentication:
Choose from three authentication types: Password, Key-based, or both. Additionally, three key types are supported: Authentication Agent (PuTTY or SSH), Load from file, and Security Token or Smart Card.
