The File Transfer Client You Already Know How to Use

WebDrive makes accessing and editing files on corporate SFTP, WebDAV and SharePoint Servers as easy as editing any file on your computer. Map a network drive to FTP, SFTP, WebDAV, Amazon S3 or other cloud servers. Open, edit, save. It’s that simple.

Easy to Use

WebDrive’s instantly familiar interface lets you fluently work with cloud storage, local files and files on remote servers through one common access point. Use WebDrive instead of the traditional FTP Client, WebDAV Client or SFTP Client to reduce the steps of updating remote content. Connect to popular cloud storage servers such as OneDrive, Google Drive and Dropbox through the convenience of a mapped drive letter.

Easy to Manage

WebDrive was created with IT managers in mind, so supporting WebDrive on a large number of desktops is simple.

No more installation insanity. WebDrive lets you preconfigure settings and distribute them to your users. Protocols, ports, IP Addresses and other settings are configured once by the IT group. Users don’t need to know any information except their username and password. This avoids installation errors and manually configuring dozens or hundreds of PCs.

Reduced Training and Troubleshooting. Since users already know the WebDrive interface, you reduce the training time often associated with implementing new applications. WebDrive’s cost-effective multi-seat licensing allows easy standardization of your file transfer software, rather than having users download a variety of applications that your IT team has to support.

Easy to Try

To try WebDrive in your own environment, you can download a free 20-day, full-function WebDrive trialwithout filling out registration forms.

Simple for the Novice, Powerful for the Super-User

FTP resume interrupted download – if connection has been lost during a file transfer, WebDrive can resume from the point where there connection was lost, rather that restarting from the beginning.

Secure passwords – WebDrive uses S/KEY Password Encryption – Use MD4 & MD5 password encryption for supported FTP servers.

File Caching – WebDrive caches both file and directory listings for quick access. You can control the amount of disk space used for the cache, and whether to cache files, directory listings, or both.

File locking – when used with WebDAV servers. This prevents users from accidentally overwriting another user’s changes.

Backup Utility – WebDrive includes a simple backup utility so that you can easily back up your PC files to an offsite server.

Compression for faster transfers – WebDrive supports ZLIB compression on SFTP transfers for faster transfer speeds.

Advanced Technical Features

  • Firewall/Proxy server support – Login through a variety of proxy servers and firewalls, including MS Proxy 2.0, SOCKS 4.3 and SOCKS 5, and Raptor (gwpasswd).
  • UNC connections – can be used instead of a drive letter, or if all available drive letters have been used. This makes the number of connections virtually unlimited.
  • ASCII/Binary transfer options – transfer files in either mode based on file extension.
  • Support for UNIX file attributes through an Explorer shell extension as well as a command line utility.
  • DOS/Legacy Support – Drive letters mapped through WebDrive are accessible from a command prompt. You can use commands such as copy, xcopy, mkdir, dir, and move.

A complete list of WebDrive’s advanced features can be found in the WebDrive User’s Guide.

WebDrive Does More Than You May Think

WebDrive is an excellent replacement for a traditional FTP Client, WebDAV Client or other file transfer application. But did you know that WebDrive can also:

Replace your VPN. Use WebDrive as a replacement for slow, complex, expensive VPNs, enabling your remote staff to access files as easily as if they were on your corporate network.

Manage Multiple Websites. Web designers and developers who manage multiple sites can map a drive to each site.

Connect from your iPad or iPhone.  A version of WebDrive is available for your iPad or iPhone and can be purchased from the App Store.

Connect from your Android device.  A version of WebDrive is available for your Android device and can be purchased from the Google Play Store.

Access DropBox and Google Drive directly. DropBox and Google Drive clients write the files first to a sync folder and then send them to the server. If your local sync folder is deleted or damaged, WebDrive still lets you get to those cloud files. This is also useful if you have limited hard drive space on your PC.

Integrate PC scripts and programs with remote files. Use WebDrive to add remote file access to any PC script or program. Your script can just read from or write to any drive letter that is mapped by WebDrive. There’s no need to program the specific protocol commands.

Extend the reach of desktop search. Just configure your desktop search program to search the drives that are mapped by WebDrive. Your desktop search tool will be able to return results from your PC, cloud storage and other remote servers.

Backup your files. For simple backup requirements, use WebDrive’s File Manager to schedule full or partial backups. You can back up the files on your PC to any remote server that WebDrive is connected to.

Map Windows drives to UNIX shares. WebDrive makes it easier to work with different platforms and environments.
