See network drives
« on: December 13, 2013, 06:58:36 AM »
A lot of new routers has the otion to connect a harddrive and then access it via FTP, like a NAS. It is then easy in Windows 8 to mount that ftp location as a network  drive with a drive name, but it does not get a drive letter and is not visible in PM.....

I don't think we'll ever make PM treat an FTP server as a drive.

Well, did not really think you would...;-) I found NetDrive freeware that can solve it, so no problem.
