Mapping to External Cloud Storage

If you use OneDrive, Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, etc. and would like to have mapped drive access to those within your Swizznet Windows Explorer, now you can. NetDrive is a solution that allows you to gain access to those other cloud services as locally mapped drives from within the Swizznet environment.

Here's how:

1. Download NetDrive for Mac or PC here http://www.netdrive.net/

2. Sign up for an account  for NetDrive3 here: https://accounts.bdrive.com

3. Once installed, there will be a green circle with a plus symbol in the lower right hand corner, click it:

6. Click OK

7. Your cloud storage solution will ask you to authenticate in a new browser tab which opens automatically. Log in and authenticate that 3rd party:
