(currently, stack is only available for Dutch customers - sorry!)

Now to the problem: you have a kick-ass cloud storage with 1TB of data. Great! And they offer WEBDAV! WAUW! PARTY MODE == ON!

Why is this cool? You can think of Webdav technology as a live filesystem on the network. As any filesystem, you can mount it. So you are not syncing your data... You are working real-time!

Supposedly, Windows 10's map network drive should be able to handle webdav. I couldn't get it to work.

Old as I am, I remembered plenty of free Windows tools that could mount Webdav (and other cloud services). A rather long Google session later, I found there aren't many free programs left. Most went commercial or are not supported any longer :/

I did find that my friends of Cyberduck.io had a program I thought could help. One problem, while logging in without problems to my Stack account, it gave an error when requesting /. folder.

A few support emails back and forth (do those guys ever sleep??!), I got this solution. Enter the following path to get when connecting:
/remote.php/webdav

(and if you are using CarotDAV, the URI should be: https://yourname.stackstorage.com/remote.php/webdav)

Now, no more errors! Yeah. Sad news, still: the free cyberduck & CarotDAV tools do *not* mount cloud services as a *drive* in Windows. You need to *buy* mountainduck.io.

I'm still looking for a *free windows tool* to connect & mount cloud services, but for now: I have my stack working even without using their client tool!  :bih:

Peace!

 :up: sometimes the solution is right in front of you but your cool glasses prevent you seeing anything...  8)

Like I said, Windows 10 *should* support mapping Webdav services as a drive - and it DOES! If you know how :)

CarotDAV program brought the solution to me...

Go to This PC in Windows explorer.

Click the map network drive icon. In the dialogue, chose your drive letter and enter the following path:
https://yourname.stackstorage.com/remote.php/webdav

Set the option "connect as a different user" to enabled and enter your credentials (yourname/secret-password). All is done!  ;D

Enjoy!
