Integrating HiDrive as a Network Drive in Windows 7

If you mount as a network drive in Windows 7, you can access the HiDrive folders like a local drive using a separate drive letter. In this article, we 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 so, make the appropriate changes to allow access. For detailed instructions, please refer to the instructions of the corresponding device software.

Step-by-Step Instructions

  • Open Windows Explorer.
  • Click on Connect network drive in the upper menu bar.
  • Select a free drive letter and enter the following server path in the Folder field: \\\smb.hidrive.ionos.com\root
  • If you always want to log in automatically afterwards, without having to enter your access data every time, check the box before Reconnecting when logging in.
  • Now click Finish.
  • In the window that opens, enter your HiDrive user name and password. If the information is correct, an Explorer window opens automatically where you can see the Public and User folders.

You have now successfully set up HiDrive as a network drive in Windows 7 and can drag and drop files between the folders and your computer.
