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?

Re: Drive Mapping

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.

Re: Drive Mapping

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
