Map a folder over FTP as a network drive


Does anyone know if this is possible or not in Windows?

Thank you

Webdrive can map ftp to a drive letter.

Hi - thanks for the suggestion, but this one isn't the same as mapping a network drive (where the drive acts like a logical disk you can save to etc.)

use the same format to map the URL to a drive with "map network drives" from the menu.

IIRC, you have to use software to do this, like webdrive or a similar product.

You can't map it to a drive, however you can create a place in "My Network Places".

I believe there is software out there to map FTP to drives but I've not had to use it before.
