Web Folders/WebDAV is a drag-and-drop method of transferring files or folders from your PC or Mac to a Secure CompanyV Online account or from your account to your PC or Mac. Edit Office documents online quickly from your desktop. Search and View files with ease. Print from your desktop Web Folder in a click. "Web Folders" is the name used for the Microsoft Windows client implementation of WebDAV.
Web Folders are not mapped to a drive letter, but show up instead in "My Network Places" (XP) or "Computer then Network Location" (Vista), and are also supported directly by Microsoft Office applications, including Word and Excel. Microsoft Office Web Folder support includes "file locking" during update. In general, non-Office applications do not support file locking or directly updating from within the application.
WebDav Folders are one of several means of accessing your account files. All users must enter their UserName and Password to authenticate.
Web Folders are supported on Windows 98/2000/NT/ME/XP/Vista. Mac OS X also supports WebDAV via the Finder's Connect to Server command.
NOTE: Windows Explorer Is Not Internet Explorer
Microsoft Web Folders involves using Windows Explorer. This is part of the Windows operating system, and should not be confused with the web browser Internet Explorer. Entering the URL for Web Folders into Internet Explorer will not result in a window that uses Web Folders.

Windows Vista: Creating a Web Folder
NOTE: Microsoft has acknowledged there are Web Folder issues in Vista, but unless your system is 64-bit, you should be able to get Web Folders working by installing an update from Microsoft and using the instructions and "workarounds" in the following steps:
You can drag folders or files from your computer or other storage media attached to your computer and drop them into the Web Folder. You can also drag folders or files from the Web Folder onto your computer.
You can also save to your Web Folder from within applications, such as Microsoft Word. Choose FILE, then SAVE AS in your application. Choose Web Folders, then the name of your Web Folder, and enter the name of your file (without spaces).
