Subject Re: Accessing JCR Repository over CIFS
Date Wed, 11 Mar 2009 07:29:31 GMT

You could use something like NetDrive [1]  to mount a WebDAV share to a 
drive letter. Don't have much experience with this, though.
Another (commercial) solution is WebDrive [2]. I have used this a lot 
for mounting SFTP connections to drive letters, and occasionally for 
WebDAV shares also. Local caching of files and folders seems to be a 
problem when multiple persons change the filesystem, but you can disable 
local caching.

best regards,
