Direct Web Folder Access (Mapped Drive)

Get direct access to remote files by creating a web folder mapped to FilesAnywhere account. This allows you to drag/drop or copy/paste files into the directory. To map a drive, follow these step-by-step instructions.

  • Available only with Advanced and Corporate plans.
  • Useful for drag/drop, copy/paste, and editing directly to your FilesAnywhere account from your local drive.
  • SSL 128-bit encryption.

File Transfer Protocol (FTP/SFTP)

Use any FTP/SFTP software to transfer large files directly to your account. Note that FTP is not encrypted, while SFTP is the secure method. More information is available in our FTP/SFTP Overview.

  • Available only with Advanced and Corporate plans.

Important Information About Uploads

  • Though it depends upon your Internet connection, uploads typically take longer than downloads to complete. Uploads that take a long time to complete may trigger timeouts. Once the file transfer is interrupted, it cannot be resumed but must be restarted. For this reason, we suggest large files are uploaded through methods such as FTP/SFTP to minimize interruptions.
  • If you wish to interrupt a file transfer, you may do so by clicking the refresh button in your browser or the F5 key. Close your browser if you need to be certain that the upload was completely canceled.
  • If an upload depletes all remaining drive space, then downloads will cease to function until files are removed to bring the plan back within the storage limits or the plan is upgraded.
