Access Your ExaVault Files Seamlessly with WebDrive

Are you an ExaVault customer or are you looking for a truly frictionless way to access your remote files all in one place?  WebDrive File Access Client is the perfect solution. WebDrive allows you to access your ExaVault server (or any other remote storage) directly in Windows Explorer or Mac Finder as a drive letter, as if it were a drive on your computer.  You can even map unique drive letters to different folders on your server.

Follow these easy steps to connect your ExaVault account:

  1. Open your WebDrive application.
  2. Click on “New” to set up a new connection.

Additional Configuration

Next, you’ll enter the configuration settings needed to access your ExaVault account. WebDrive will do a quick test to make sure you have entered all of your settings correctly.

Test connection feature

 

Once you have the initial connections set up, you can begin customizing.  You can choose a site name for the storage location and select a drive letter to map to your ExaVault account. You can also choose to automatically connect to your ExaVault account each time you login to or start your computer.

Once everything is set up, you will be able to see all the files and folders that are in your account. WebDrive allows you to browse and interact with all of the files as if they were on your local desktop.

WebDrive offers a backup option that allows you to specify what type of backup you’d like completed.  Whether you want to have files from your local system automatically copied up to ExaVault or files downloaded from ExaVault to your local system, setup is a breeze.

Choose type of backup job

 

WebDrive also allows you to schedule backups to run automatically (e.g. 10PM each night), or you can choose to run them manually at any time.
