As some of you may know, WebDAV is one of many cool features FatDisco offers. Read further if you have a Microsoft Windows OS and want to mount the FatDisco storage.
The OS used in this Tips&Tricks article is Windows XP. This means that the steps shown here will also work on newer Microsoft Windows releases.
As some of you may know, WebDAV is one of many cool features FatDisco offers. If you have a Microsoft Windows OS and want to mount the FatDisco storage, you can do the following:
Go to your network connections folder (My Network Places) and click on “Add a network place”, visible on your left hand side column to start the Wizard dialogue.
Read the description carefully (just joking) and hit the first “Next” button :).
Select the correct type of the network place you want to add. In this case it’s called “Choose another network location” and click “Next”.
Type in the FatDisco server URL associated with your account. It has a form of: https://<username>.fatdisco.com/remote.php/webdav. In this particular example we’ve used a sample user “fatuser”, hence the link is: https://fatuser.fatdisco.com/remote.php/webdav. Then guess what? … Yes, you’re right, click “Next”.
You should then see a popup asking for your username and password. Put your credentials here. You can decide to either store the password, by placing a tick near the “Save this password in your password list”, or not. This time you click “OK” to move forward.
Name your connection. Choose the name wisely and click “Next” :).
You should see the confirmation of your unparalleled network kung-fu skills, which you should read out loud and clear, and click the “Finish” button.
You should now see the content of your FatDisco drive.
