Windows WebDAV Setup

You can upload and/or download resources using the WebDAV protocol. WebDAV allows you to transfer files and folders from your local computer to and from your site's Resources or File Drop.

Important: Due to how Windows 8 and 10 establish WebDAV connections, a WebDAV connection using a Windows 8 or 10 network location will not continue to work after you restart your computer - you will need to delete an existing connection and follow the steps below each time you would like to connect to a site's Resources or File Drop.

To establish a persistent WebDAV connection that you can reuse after restarting your computer, we recommend downloading and using a third party tool instead of connecting with a Windows network location. You can find a list of those here.
