Mapping drives is a standard feature of Windows networking.
There are many ways to make a drivemapping one is to
The full syntax is
On the server, if Windows, you can use Windows Explorer to select a folder and share it (use the right-click context-menu)
If you don't belong to a Windows Domain (you'd know if you did) you just have to make sure both computers are in the same workgroup and (ideally) have the same usernames and (ideally) passwords.
win-sshfs is capable of mounting a remote server's filesystem via SSH and mapping it to a drive letter. This is not for the faint of heart, though. There's almost no documentation (and I don't have time to write it :) ).
This is what I've been looking for. The solutions given did allow me to map to a web folder, but did not give me the drive letter. Having a web folder is only really a shortcut to FTP. I am unable to save changes to the web folder. I have to save them locally, then upload.
With these types of tools, you can open the files and when you save them, the changes are reflected on the server.
