Koofr WebDAV Help

Getting started with WebDAV connection to Koofr

The Koofr application provides an alternative way of accessing data in the cloud using the WebDAV protocol which can be found in any operating system used on a computer. You can upload, download, copy, delete and move files or folders using this type of connection. All changes made on files or folders will be seen in the Koofr application and vice versa. This type of connection does not allow you to synchronise data or share items stored in the cloud.

How to set up the WebDAV protocol through Koofr desktop client?

Go to Settings in the Koofr desktop client in the menu on the left. Find the Network drive option and click Enable. This will automatically establish a WebDAV protocol for the Koofr app on your computer. No further action is needed. Note: This is the Koofr recommended way of setting up the WebDAV protocol.
