If you’re a developer working on an online project, you need to edit your work offline, load your favourite FTP client, login to the server, locate the remote server you require and then upload the files. The traditional method of administering remote files.
Wouldn’t a better solution involve assigning a drive letter to the remote server (or folder) and then simply writing the files directly to the server, as if it was a drive on your computer?
It’s possible. You can already do this with network storage. Simple connect an external hard drive to your local network, assign a drive letter and you can work on these files as if they were on a USB drive connected to your PC.
WebDrive is a tool that enables you to assign a drive letter to a remote server or folder and then use this as a drive on your machine. It goes further though, giving you full versioning control, so if more than one person has access to the remote server, you don’t automatically overwrite their work with your files.
By assigning a drive letter to a remote folder on your server, you can use applications to backup content to this drive, as it was a flash drive connected to your PC. Better still, WebDrive makes sure your files are secure, so no-one can intercept the files you send or receive, between computer and remote drive.
