How to Map 50GB Free Folder as Virtual Drive on Computer is a Cloud-Service which provides storage space specifically for Microsoft Office programs, though you can use it to store other relevant data. You can create account with three pricing plans: Personal which is free, Business which costs around $15/user/month and Enterprise which has no fixed price.

What I’m interested is Personal plan which provides us with storage of 5 to 50 GB and the file size limit is from 25MB to 1GB. I know people like External storage more than storing their data on Cloud Services. The thing is I also store my data on Cloud Services like but I use them as my external drive through mapping a network drive, a feature provided in Windows.

Note: If you want to create a account, you can create it from here.

All you need to do is follow these steps:

1) Open My Computer through the Start Menu or by pressing Win+E.

2) Choose Map network drive as shown in the image below.

3) A new Windows will open where you have to choose the drive letter, choose whatever drive letter you like, and enter the following:

4) Do check that you have selected Reconnect at logon and click Finish.

5) Now you’ll be asked to fill in your account credentials to connect to your drive or folder.

6) Your mapped drive will have the name dav (\\\DavWWWRoot), though you can change the name by right-clicking it and renaming it. network drive

Actually, Avi, the free account is only upto 5GB and maximum file size is 25MB. Storage space upto 50GB is available for $19.99 and the same applies to file size of 1GB. Only 5GB is free.

@Shivanand:It’s what the web service says, I had around 31 GB in my virtual drive. Like they say 5 to 50 GB.

After doing the above steps it is showing 1.29 GB free of 24.4 GB though there are no files in the drive…

Hi, I managed to map the drive but when I try to upload files it goes really slow, approx 20 Kbit/s, is this normal? I have a 100Mbit fiber full duplex connection.

Hi Rohit

I tried this but when I tried mapping it I am getting an access denied message. I log on to the net through a proxy from office. Could this be a reason?
