WebDAV with Windows (Individual)

Even without a special client installed, Windows has WebDAV built into the Operating System. Connecting to your WebDAV directory can be accomplished through Microsoft’s Windows Explorer. This mounts the WebDAV folder as a mapped drive and allows you to view, edit, and delete files from the remote web server from your computer.
