Mount an FTP server as a Drive in windows?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am trying to set up a home file server but unfortunately the rest of my family can't get their head wrapped around the whole use the FTP client to log onto the server so I was wondering if there was a way to mount the server as a network drive and just have them access it like that?

(they can get into a second HDD)

Is there a reason you just can't share out the drive/folder? If you set up permissions properly they won't even have to log in. You could even just place a shortcut on their desktops to access the share.

Just as easily as DarkPhoenix's idea, set up a network share on the server then mount the path as a network drive "Just open E:/ drive in My Computer" - Done.
