Mounting Files.com via WebDAV on macOS
Our preferred solution for mounting Files.com as a drive on macOS is to use the Files.com Desktop App.
In a very small number of situations, it may not be possible to use the Desktop app for a given use case. In those situations, another approach is to mount Files.com as a drive using WebDAV.
First, you need to set up your Mac so that Finder and WebDAV play nicely together.
- Disable .DS_Store over network connections by following Apple's directions.
- Disable icon previews by following these directions.
Now you're ready to connect your Mac via WebDAV.
Open Finder and and choose Go > Connect to Server, or press
⌘ + K. In the Connect to Server dialog box, enter
SUBDOMAIN is your Files.com subdomain in the Server Address box and then click Connect.
Make sure you select Registered User on the prompt. When prompted for your username and password, enter your Files.com credentials. You can select the option to store your login information in your keychain for easy access.
If all was entered correctly, a new Finder window will open showing the files on your site.
You can now browse and access it as any other drive.
