Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Is there a way of doing this automagically and reliably?

I know of the feature to add an FTP site as a Network Location which then appears in My Computer, but I see no way of assigning a drive letter to it.

It would be a necessity for whatever free software or hack to cache the username and password so it does not have to keep being entered.

My operating system is Windows 7 Ultimate, 32 bit, but any suggestions for earlier versions of Windows back to XP would be appreciated too

Assuming it doesn't matter a lot if SFTP or FTP is used, and though I don't know if any of those mentions drive letters: see also "SFTP as a folder on Vista" at superuser.com/questions/55860/sftp-as-a-folder-on-vista and "Mounting SSH/SFTP shares on Windows 7" at superuser.com/questions/67551/… (and as an aside: "sshfs equivalent for windows?" at superuser.com/questions/40708/sshfs-equivalent-for-windows). –  Arjan Jan 17 '10 at 16:28

You can with NetDrive (free for home use):

  • Mounts remote storage as a local hard disk on your PC
  • Data transfer by drag and drop files in windows explorer
  • Able to run files(video, audio and any other .exe files)
  • Mounts drive automatically when Windows starts.
