Map a folder on my ftp to a drive letter in win 7


#1

Hello, I would like to map a folder on my ftp to a drive letter in windows 7 (x64 professional). I’ve been as far as the Map Network Drive screen: Windows 7 Map Network Drive panel

Typing ftp://@www.dwbgallery.com/backup/ immediately results in the error "Windows cannot access " BUT if I use the link below (“Connect to a Web site that you can use to store your documents and pictures”) Windows allows me to create a link to the folder of my choice on the ftp - but it’s not mapped to a drive letter.

How do I get this mapped to a drive letter?

So you did all this http://cybernetnews.com/cybernotes-map-a-ftp-to-a-drive-in-windows/

You won’t get a drive letter but you can use the drive correct?

I think you’d have to use something like NetDrive…
or http://alternativeto.net/software/netdrive/?license=opensource

Yes I did most of that except follow the 12-year-old instructions (from cybernetnews), =) I was trying to follow the instructions and nothing was matching up and finally I looked at the article’s date - 1999! Yikes. Anyways, netdrive did the trick in about 1 minute. Amazing. Thank you!
