# Re: How to set repository root in SSH tunnel mode on Windows?

I think the problem is that the repository and the home directory for the
user (i.e c:\Documents and Setting\username) logged through SSH
must reside in the same drive in Windows.
So, you have two solutions:
1) Move your repository the same drive that the home directory
2) Change the user home directory to reside in the same drive as the
repository

I think the first is easier but it's up to you to decide...
I'm sorry don't know now exactly the procedure to change an user's
home directory in Windows.
