How do I Map a filesanywhere.com account to a drive letter in Windows 7?
By mapping a network drive to filesanywhere.com in Windows 7, you will have easier access to your cloud storage. Advanced user access is required on your account as you will have to enable webdav access for this work.
NOTE: Only Advanced User’s on filesanywhere have drive mapping functionality.
Once completed, you should see your new drive under “Computer” mapped as a drive letter. If you are having trouble connecting, make sure you have entered the correct username “email@example.com” and password.
If you are still having trouble, make sure your “WebClient” service is running by browsing to:
START>CONTROL PANEL>SYSTEM AND SECURITY>ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS>SERVICES
If you are having trouble logging in to your account, make sure that your user account is an Advanced User account. If you have an Advanced User account and you are still experiencing problems logging in, check your username. Your username will be USERNAME@filesanywhere.com. NOTICE the @FILESANYWHERE.COM and not your e-mail address.
External hard drives can be a great way to store large amounts of files, but are still susceptible to hardware failure. Make sure that you are backing your most important files with a redundant cloud backup solution. There are many solutions available, but after some research I found that, filesanywhere.com offers a great secure and cost effective solutions for backing up files.
As always, please comment with questions/suggestions.
