Integrating HiDrive as a Network Drive in Windows 10

If you mount as a network drive in Windows 10, you can access the folders from HiDrive as a regular (local) drive using a separate drive letter. In this article, we will show you how to do it.

Requirements

You are using HiDrive Pro.

Please Note

Some routers and firewalls may block port 445, which is required to set up HiDrive as a network drive in some cases. Check your local firewall or the configuration of your router to see if access to port 445 is blocked, and if necessary, make any needed changes to allow access. For detailed instructions, please refer to the instructions of the corresponding device software.

Step-by-Step Instructions

  • Open the Windows Explorer.
  • In the list view, click This PC.
  • Select the Computer tab in the upper tab navigation.
  • Click Connect network drive.
  • Select a free drive letter and enter the following server path in the Folder field: \\smb.hidrive.ionos.com\root.
  • In the window that opens, enter your HiDrive user name and password.

You will now find your new mounted drive in the Network Addresses section of Windows Explorer and can drag and drop files between the folders and your computer quickly and easily.
