The FTPUSE command maps a remote share (FTP server) as a local drive, so you can use the FTP server of your choice as a local hard drive. FTPUSE is a free application which was developed during production of the network backup suite Ferro Backup Syst

em, but disks mapped using FTPUSE can be accessed by any application (e.g. Windows Explorer, Total Commander, MS-DOS command shell).

You can download Ftpuse from here http://www.ferrobackup.com/ftpuse/

The FTPUSE command syntax is similar to NET USE syntax, as follows:


FTPUSE devicename [ftphostname[/remotepath] [password]]

  1. Open Explorer.

    click on Map network drive

    click on the Connect to a web site that you can use to store your documents and pictures link.

    Starts the Add Network Location Wizard, and follow instructions.

    Alternate GUI (and built-in) way to do the same thing.

  2. @Bryan, your example creates a reference to the drive and lets you browse the files thru Explorer, but it does not assign an actual drive letter as this application does.
