Drive Mapping

I'm looking to map a drive in windows to one of our Box folders, is there a way to do this?  I tried mapping to the webdav site, but that only gets me to the top level.  Is it possible to map further down?

Yep. If you add the rest of the path to the end of the webdav url, it will mount a drive to that subfolder precisely. Use url substitution rules for special characters if it doesn't work right away.

Thanks, I think I'm running into a special character issue.

Hi, could you explain what you mean by Webdav, I am not expert in these matters and just want to find the url to input in the "map network drive" box under file explorer.

Thanks for any help you can give
