Important Information About WebDAV

  • Some database applications may not function on a Web-based network drive exactly like they do on a standard local area network drive.  To be certain, ask your software vendor about how their software is supported accessing data files through a "WebDAV " connection.

 

 

Mapping a Folder

If for some reason the mapping of a drive won't work for you, you can attempt to map a folder instead.

1) Follow the same three steps as above in the Mapping a Drive section.

2) Select the "Connect to a Web site that you can use to store your documents and pictures" link instead.
