I actually started using WebDrive back in the mid-1990's when I had to submit programming assignments to my college teacher via FTP. The usual FTP console did not work well with deleting multiple directories and was always difficult to set up in uploading and download my content.

Webdrive to the rescue, which with just one single setup gave me a network drive letter to work with instead of a clumsy ftp console platform. Everything was just like what you see in a Windows Explorer setup. Fast-forward to the year 2018 and I am still using it, this time to hook up to my cloud drives at Amazon, Google, and OneDrive.

I used this product with a client of mine who maintained multiple office locations and had a need to map to storage on their server in their mail office. VPN was not a viable option due to limitations on internet options at two of their offices. This product was the perfect solution.

It is a very stable, easy to use, and useful tool for transferring files.

A very useful behavior of webdrive is to provide "view remote files (and directories) as local". For windows webdrive provide a disk letter (as you want) for a remote file system. Accessing remote file system is done with differents protocols (ftp, webdav, sftp, ...).

Anyclient is a client for ftp (or webdav, ...) but it not provide a disk letter to "view remote files as local".

hope it help

It fit our needs and was compatible with our cloud system using WebDAV but also gave us cross repository access for multiple systems. Seems very reliable and lots of flexibility in settings to adjust performance.

WebDrive is our goto solution for connecting our clients to SharePoint Online through Office 365. It makes migrations of large file drive shares easier and supports both WebDAV and REST interfaces. Brian Gaubert - Contentactive.com

Could be better

I only used for SFTP. Causes Explorer to frequently lag, sometimes freeze completely requiring a force-kill, and also randomly downloads files regardless of the cache setting (e.g. ZIP files associated with WinRAR) - likely an incompatibility with shell extensions.
