Connect SFTP - setting the initial local directory

How can I change the initial local directory for SFTP?

I have had my Windows domain changed and my ID along with it. Since then, when invoking the SFTP tab in SecureCRT (6.7.4 (x64 build 354)) I get an error message stating:
There was a problem using the initial local directory <old path here>: Access is denied. Attempting to fall back to default initial path.
Sometimes I get a prompt with the local directory set to C:/Windows/system32, other times it just hangs and if I CTRL-C I get an sftp> prompt, but am not connected to the remote system.

Where and how can set/change that value?

Thanks in advance.

Greetings nohup,

The initial local directory is set in Session Options / Connection / SSH2 / SFTP Tab.

Is the path you see there the same as the <old path here>?
