Windows 7: "NetDrive" equivalent for 64 bit Windows 7

"NetDrive" equivalent for 64 bit Windows 7

I have been using NetDrive for accessing a remote storage drive using webdav and accessing it as a windows map network drive letter.

However, NetDrive which is free for home use is available as of now only for 32 bit.

I heard about WebDrive but it is very expensive.

If anyone can point to another such freeware for 64 bit OS which allows remote webdav based storage to be accessed as a map network drive in Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.

I believe Windows 7 x64 supports WebDAV. Check out this thread for how to do it:

I am sorry. I forgot to mention that NetDrive supports Webdav using HTTP or HTTPS protocols. This allows the map network drive to work even when the normal port (145 if I remember it right) is blocked by the ISP.

If the port is not blocked by ISP (e.g. Verizon FIOS), it works straight away in Windows itself.

But many ISPs and particularly outside USA do block this port and NetDrive is necessary at such times.

Yes, I did download the software Bitkinex and installed it. However, I faced the following problems.

When I connect to the server \\dav.onlinestoragesolution.net/<username>, it does not accept it. If I give only dav.onlinestoragesolution.net as server name along with account details, it does accept and connect but immediately closes the connection saying that http is not supported. I have selected SSL in Bitkinex for connecting.

I also do not see any mechanism of having the drive mapped as network drive using a drive letter on local machine in Bitkinex. I need this functionality so that I can automatically schedule my backup programs to copy from one HDD (on local machine) to another HDD (remote storage).

try WebDrive: FTP Software Download Page - Titan FTP Server Software, WebDrive FTP Client Software
They have a 64bit version which works ok but can occasionally bring your PC down with 100% CPU usage if you use it for mapping HTTPS.
