Step-by-Step Instructions: WebDAV for Mac Users
If you've never mapped a network drive, it sounds like a daunting, "techie" task that may have you running for the nearest Bat Phone to IT. But creating a webfolder or drive letter just takes a few steps and gives you access to your remote files on your local machine. Once connected to your FilesAnywhere webfolder, you can copy and paste, drag and drop, rename, move, and generally work with your files as if they were on your local drive. This enhanced feature is available to Advanced plan and Corporate customers only, so make sure to Upgrade Your Account for WebDAV access!
Note: Starting November 29th, 2023 the WebDAV feature will be limited to legacy accounts only and will not be available for new accounts.
