Mapping WebDAV Folders with NetDrive

NetDrive is a drive mapping utility that allows mounting remote WebDAV or FTP servers as local hard drives. It is distributed as a freeware for home use, and provides a simple way to have your Web folders automatically mapped on Windows startup.

To map a new WebDAV folder with NetDrive, follow these steps:

  1. Click New Site.
  2. On the Site Properties pane specify Site name, Site IP or URL, Port and Server Type.
  3. Click the arrow near the Drive field to open the shortcut menu, and then select a drive letter that will be made associated with the server.
  4. Check Connect as anonymous if your WebDAV server allows anonymous access, or enter account login and password in the respective fields.
  5. Check Automatic login when system starts if you want to enable automatic mapping of the drive on Windows startup.
  6. Check Automatic login when NetDrive starts if you want to enable automatic mapping of the drive when the program starts.
  7. If you require secure connection with SSL, server encoding different than UTF-8, or if you are behind a proxy server, click Advanced in the main window, and then fill the respective fields.

Though NetDrive provides a very convenient way to map a remote WebDAV folder, it’s not a must. Windows Vista/XP operating systems have built-in clients for interaction with WebDAV.
