How to mount ftp drive (folder) as a local drive in windows? If you can manage your FTP storage as a windows local drive , that will help you in many ways. You don’t have to use an application or an FTP client interface every time you want to connect to your FTP storage.
This is particularly useful if you manage a blog or website. As and when you make changes to your files you need to update the same to the server. If the FTP storage is mapped as a local drive uploading and downloading happens almost transparently.
NetDrive from Bdrive Inc. helps you to achieve this. Using NetDrive you can mount your remote FTP and WebDAV server storages to a local drive. Once you mount the local drive, you don’t need to run an application or an FTP client interface but a simple drag-and-drop in your Windows Explorer will be sufficient to transfer and manage files.
NetDrive allows you to use DOS-prompt commands on the mapped drive and can use commands like copy, xcopy and dir etc.
NetDrive also allows you to run video, audio and any other .exe files from the mapped drive. NetDrive mounts drive automatically when Windows starts and supports direct file operation in mapped drive.
Once you install NetDrive, you will see an icon created in your system tray and you can customize the program settings from Setup menu.
NetDrive is free for non-commercial home use.
