Even more required tools for Windows Admins: WebDrive

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 29-Aug-2006 18:17

This is part III of a series of posts showing some of the software tools I use on a daily basis. While I previously covered system maintenance tools and private networking before, this time it's a file management tool: WebDrive.

This small tool is a perfect utility for file operations over a network, with the ability to connect to FTP and SFTP servers, WebDAV servers and to the .Mac iDisk service.

What's more important about it? The program does so in a transparent way, and actually maps a drive letter to the server. When used over a private network such as a VPN tunnel or Hamachi, then you have a nice and secure way of accesing your server and copy files from and to it.


As a bonus, WebDrive maps can be used from the command line, making it perfect for scheduling backup operations from scripts for example.

Not a free software, but an important tool on my desktop.
