Driveletter Nextcloud

How can I assign NextCloud to a driveletter?
I tried this in the Explorer:

  • Select This PC
  • From the menu I select Computer
  • from the submenu I select create Networkconnection and again Networkconnection
  • I select a drive letter and click on the link Connect to a website to store documents and pictures.
  • I select Next onto the screen Select a customized networklocation
  • I typed the URL of my NextCloud instance and click Next

Now Windows tell me: “The entered folder is not a valid folder. Please select another folder”.

What is going wrong.

I am using the Dutch Windows, so the translation is not correct…

The Windows Implementation of Webdav is broken. You should rely on 3rd Party Software for this on windows.

See: https://docs.nextcloud.com/server/12/user_manual/files/access_webdav.html?highlight=webdav#accessing-files-using-microsoft-windows

Mountainduck works fine for me, but is not free…

is it really broken? i thought i had heard that it’s not meant to work for sercurity and performance reasons…

it’s broken in terms of not supporting official RFCs…
