Mapping drives with Windows for Nextcloud

To map a drive using the Microsoft Windows Explorer:

  • Open Windows Explorer on your MS Windows computer.
  • Right-click on Computer entry and select Map network drive… from the drop-down menu.
  • Choose a local network drive to which you want to map Nextcloud.
  • Specify the address to your Nextcloud instance, followed by /remote.php/dav/files/USERNAME/. For example:
  • https://example.com/nextcloud/remote.php/dav/files/USERNAME/
  • Click the Finish button.

Windows Explorer maps the network drive, making your Nextcloud instance available

Note

For SSL protected servers, check Reconnect at sign-in to ensure that the mapping is persistent upon subsequent reboots. If you want to connect to the Nextcloud server as a different user, check Connect using different credentials.
