Hello, I purchased the personal lifetime cloud package awhile back and Ive been using the windows cloud tools in windows xp. All the basic features works like the sync, explorer interegation and drive letter mapping with virtual disk. So recently I added the webdav service and I tried to map a drive letter this time using webdav but I get this error. Any suggestions?

Hi, XP is not great at mapping WebDav drives. Recent Service Pack updates seem to have exacerbated the issue. The web is littered with issues from users trying to map WebDav to Windows XP. Even when mapped WebDav is relatively so compared to the native SME drive. This was one of the original reasons we built the native drive mapping software.

In Windows 7 and Windows 8 WebDav functions as expected as Microsoft seem to have re-designed.

We have users who managed to connect using native WebDav on XP but it seems dependant on a number of factors such as patches and registry keys.

We'd recommend you use the mapped drive or upgrade to Windows 7 / 8 if a robust WebDav mapping is required.

Thanks for the feedback. Im still able to use webdav using the "add a network place" feature in xp, but it wont map a drive letter. I also found a freeware called netdrive thats capable of using webdav to login to smestorage and it maps drives as well but seems buggy.

I googled around about webdav and your right about webdav being a pain with xp. I still have a couple questions though regarding its features and uses. I understand its secure functions but what other features does it have vs other network connections. Does it still need "shadowcopy" to a temp/cache folder?
