WebDAV connection to Koofr

Starting

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 PC.

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 synchronize data or share items stored in the cloud.

Using the WebDAV protocol for Windows 7 and 8

Access your files on Koofr with the file manager on your computer which has a built-in WebDAV connection. Just follow the steps below:

  • Click on the Start button and choose the option Computer.

  • Click on Map Network drive.

  

  • Type https://app.koofr.net/dav into the text box Folder.

  • If you want to use WebDav every time you access your folders, check the Reconnect at sign-in.

  • Check the option Connect using different credentials.

  

  • Type in the username and password for the Koofr app into the new window and click on the OK button.

  

Now you have established a WebDAV protocol for the Koofr app. In the folder structure in your computer, you will now see a new NetworkDrive. If you click on it, you can see the same folder structure as in the Koofr web application.

  

Check WebClient Properties

In case you haven’t been able to connect to the Koofr app with the WebDAV protocol, see if you have the correct settings for the WebClient. Follow the instructions:

  • Right click on My Computer / Computer / This PC and choose Manage.

  

  • When the menu opens, click on Services on the left side of the window. Find the WebClient option in the list on the right, right click on it and choose Properties.

  

  • When the WebClient Properties open, select Automatic under the "Startup type", click the Start button and confirm it with a click on the OK button.
