Wordpress + webDAV

I have wordpress installed in my root and it runs most of what i need on my site but i’d like to add a webdav folder on my hosting so i can easily transfer files around. The problem (i think) though is that wordpress’ .htaccess info means that when i go to add the webfolder on my computer, or in the browser it comes up with a 404 error message.

Anyone know a way round this which doesn’t envolve me moving everything on my site around?
