Quite some time back we had shown you how to access FTP servers as a local drive in Windows, but we came across a much more advanced software called Sticky Folder which allows you to mount HTTP, FTP and Usenet news servers as a local drive in Window.
Sticky Folder will allow you to mount FTP and HTTP files as drives or folders, allowing to access the remote files like any other regular file in Windows explorer.
Key Features of StickyFolders
- User-friendly integration of the Internet data sources, such as files and folders residing on remote http, FTP, and Usenet news servers into your desktop file structure, – with the full drive letter-mapping support;
- Instant access to all types of remote files, - you don’t have to pre-download them before using, in most of the cases;
- Free positioning within the remote files being opened or played, independent of the network protocol and the file format used;
- For remote multi-media files, support for preview, smooth streaming and efficient playback;
- A powerful and flexible download client and manager for transfers under the above protocols, with robust folder synchronization functionality included;
- A built-in Usenet binary news reader with radically new features, – you can play music and video right off a news server with it !
- Ability to work with the remote archive files (zips and rars), as if they were folders on a hard disk.
So if you are looking to easily access websites and FTP files from your PC, try out StickyFolders. StickyFolders is still in beta mode and may have some bugs.
