MyWorkDrive Webdrive Client Settings

We have tested Webdrive – www.webdrive.com for users who need a continuously mapped drive letter on Windows using WebDAV.   Note:  We only support our own mapped drive client.  These instructions are provided for reference only.

To get started Download and install Webdrive here: Webdrive

Using Site Wizard, Choose Secure WebDAV:

 

 

For Url/Address enter the address provided for your MyWorkDrive web connection when you signed up (Typically https://yourcompany.myworkdrive.net/dav) or your own site if you’re self-hosted and using your own domain name and SSL Certificate – https://share.yourcompany.com/dav  Please note /dav is case sensitive  – /DAV – Will not work – ( resolved in version 2.1.39 of the MyWorkDrive.com server software).

If you would like to map to a specific share instead of the root of your WebDAV site append the share name you created after /dav  for example:  /dav/shared

Enter the username and password that you use to login to your Windows Domain.

 

 

Custom Settings:  Click Advanced Setttings, Connection Settings.

If you are already mapping to drive “W” choose a new unused drive letter.

 

Since we use strict security for your hosted server setup you will need to select TLS 1.2 Security only:

 

 

 

Disable Quota processing under Basic File Settings:

 

2.   Cache Settings: It is necessary to disable caching.  Click, Cache Settings, Basic Cache Settings.  Uncheck Inherit global cache settings, select “None – download files from server on each access by an application”.

3.

DAV Settings: To provide locking and proper timeout settings for shared documents:  Click “DAV”, then click to enable Auto DAV locking and set DAV Lock timeout to your preferred setting eg: 1 Minute.

Click Next, Select desired Drive letter and if desired Connect at login/startup.

In WebDrive click the connect button for your newly configured site to map the selected Windows drive letter to your MyWorkDrive windows server.
