The issue you are facing:

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N): N

Steps to replicate it:

  1. open windows Explorer and add a Network location
  2. add url like “https://server.local.com/remote.php/webdav/
  3. Error occurs “The entered folder is invalid…”
  4. open CMD and type “net use * https://server.local.com/remote.php/webdav/” with userID and passord.
    After step 4 and enter userID and pwd i can map a network drive and step 1 and 2 are working also after step. 4.
    I trie that on windows 10, 2012 and 2016, all the same result

We using cert from lets Encrypt.
Is there any on how can help?

Thanks in advanced

Try this:

net use z: https://your.domain.com/remote.php/dav/files/yourusername/ /persistent:yes /user:username password

maybe you wanna try \\yournextcloud@SSL\DavWWWRoot\remote.php\dav\files\username instead?

and if it’s only about connecting a network drive to your nc you could use raidrive (for free)

btw: it would be helpful if you would have given out info about the windows-version you run

Thank you both,
i have now installed the letest NC Version. I have checked you both post an both are right but the connection to NC WevDav is only available if i using Net use first. After Net Use every Thing is perfekt.
@Jimmy Kater, wat is raidrive?

google is your friend… and would get you to raidrive.com
