Windows XP




On Windows XP there are two possible way of connecting to your account. One option is to create and map a drive letter to your account and another option is to create a web folder connection.


Option A: Setting up I(2) Drive WebDAV Server on Windows XP via a mapped drive
   
  1. From the start menu go to "Programs", "Accessories" and select "Command Prompt"
  2. At the command prompt write the following:

       net use i: "http://webdav.i2drive.com/I2 Drive/" /User:Username Password

Replace username and password with your account information. After this hit enter and you should see this message "The command completed successfully".

Now you can open Explorer and you should see the i: drive.

Note: If you like to use any other drive letter replace
i: with another letter.

2.  Double-click the My Computer icon on your desktop.
