WebDrive integrates a web or FTP server into the Windows desktop by mapping a network drive letter to it. This allows you to manipulate files on your remote server as if they were on a local hard disk. For example you can edit files using your favorite editor directly on your site, or use the Windows explorer or DOS prompt to copy/move files. WebDrive instantly Internet enables any Windows application.
WebDrive can connect to FTP, Microsoft FrontPage, or WebDAV servers.
WebDrive Site Manager
Use the site manager to define the servers you wish to map drive letters to. Enter the server URL and your username and password and press connect to map the selected drive letter to your server.

Use the Windows Explorer, not an explorer like interface.
Since WebDrive makes your web server appear as a network drive there is no need for custom user interfaces to do standard file operations, just use the applications you would normally use to manipulate files on your hard disk.
