Pros: I found out about WebDrive because I searched for a product that supported a wide rage of cloud storage services. I'm using it to mount my Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, STACK (WebDAV) and internal FTP server. Setting it up is easy and works fine. When you want to go deeper, there's a lot of options to tweak and improve performance. Overall, I'm very pleased with WebDrive.

Cons: The plethora of advanced options are a little overwhelming, and the manual isn't too clear on all of them. Lucily, Support helped me out with the few questions I had. The advanced options are a must if you want to improve performance, because Windows isn't too.. keen on a Google Drive drive, for instance. You'll want to do something with caching and other tweaks.

Overall: Makes working with cloud and local files a lot easier. I's all withing a few clicks way. Want to copy some files drom OneDrive to Google Drive? Just cop and pste from Windows Explorer and you're done. It's pretty great.

Pros: The software is easy to set up and use. I was able to get a version of software that would still run on

on win Xp with no issues. For people running industrial equipment this is a huge benefit.

Cons: Transferring very large files can sometime cause the system to stop or hang up during a long down load or upload.

Overall: Ability to get a good product that still works with Win Xp.

Pros: it just works, never fails. half the time I forget it's there. just how good system software should be

Cons: It is a tad too expensive for those of us who are smaller businesses. But it works well so I guess I can't complain ;-)

Overall: brilliant. I just sent a support request and expected to wait a day. I had a full technical response in under 5 mins! amazing

Pros: Software works great and the support is outstanding. There was an issue I had while testing the trial version that didn't quite fit what my client's needs were. I contacted support and we were able to fix the issue promptly and I was sent a new version of the program with the fix implemented. Worked perfectly after that.

Cons: The only issue I had with this program ended up becoming a Pro. A feature of the Sharepoint Online wasn't quite working right but support was amazing and able to get it fixed and working as needed.

Overall: Being able to connect up to Office 365 / Sharepoint without having to reconnect after a shutdown/reboot.

Pros: The ease of use and the functionality it provides. It's also very easy to set up the software for end users and the support is great.

Cons: Would like if the current license we purchased works with future releases. Otherwise no complaints with the software.

WebDrive helps me to work more efficiently. I can access all of my files, regardless of location.

Pros: Very simple to use and deploy. Slick interface and reliable programming. I like the fact that in around 5 clicks and a log in, you're connected up to Sharepoint without any of the hassle of using Windows Native tools or bulky One Drive.

Cons: Nothing to say here! We did have an issue on the first install which was quickly resolved. The helpdesk we're very responsive and supportive.

Overall: COnnected to Sharepoint online.

Pros: Easy to install and setup. Once it is setup you do not have to worry about it.

Cons: Only one and there maybe an option for this & have not found it. Have to login for each drive mapping.

Overall: Accessing files via Sharepoint website or Teams did not work well at all with non-Microsoft files; IE: Adobe products. Even MS products had issues at time.

Users are use to File Explorer and drive letters; so kept it simple for the end user.

Hi David!
Thanks for sharing your thoughts. There is actually a way to have sites connect automatically at login time.

Under Site Properties --> General Host Settings (may also be named by the connection type depending on what connector you're using e.g. "SharePoint Settings"), there is a setting for "Connect at login/startup." This needs to be enabled.

Also, under App Settings --> Settings, "Run in taskbar tray at startup" needs to be enabled. Wired Ethernet connections work best, but wireless often works as well. If there is still an issue connecting, the wireless connection may be connecting some time after login, causing WebDrive's attempt to connect at login to fail (no Internet established yet).

Please reach out if you have any trouble. We will be happy to assist!

Great Application and Support!
