Option : Default Directory Hides Parent Directories

In the "Site Manager", under "Advanced", have an optional checkbox to "Hide Parent Directories" when a default remote directory is specified. Alternatively, have a textbox that says "Hide Directories Above:"

So, if I specify default directory as "/nfs/abc/123/mnt/098776/domains" and check "Hide Parent Directories", then in the remote site address "/" will automatically assume the address "/nfs/abc/123/mnt/098776/domains" but not display it. In addition, the folder "/" in the remote site directory tree will assume its the "domains" directory without showing all the parents.

The result is saved screen space and have an easier working environment.


Personal explanation:
One of my host servers I log into using SFTP. As a result, the root directory of my website is at an address like "/nfs/abc/123/mnt/098776/domains"

Though this feature may be less applicable on the local machine (if at all), on the remote server I have no reason to ever go above the directory "098776" and rarely above "domains" But the parent directories take up screen space in both the remote site address bar and the remote site directory tree.
