Both NetDrive and WebDrive are capable of providing a complete file system like abstraction to a remote WebDAV share. Thus far, these two clients seem to be the most complete, stable and robust WebDAV clients available for a Windows environment. The following steps demonstrate how to set-up NetDrive to work with the XWiki-WebDAV interface:

  • First you need to find and install NetDrive (or WebDrive) on your computer.
  • If you installed NetDrive correctly, you should see an icon on your taskbar as shown below:
  • Now right click on this icon and select Open NetDrive:

  • Once you have set-up your connections properly, they will be available on the NetDrive menu. Right click on the NetDrive taskbar icon and select Connect To -> connection_name as shown below:
  • That's it! Now wait patiently until NetDrive mounts your XWiki server into your local file system as shown below:
