How to connect a third-party tool to Shadow Drive using the WebDAV protocol


​The WebDAV protocol enables third-party tools to connect to Shadow Drive

It lets you use NAS servers, file transfer software (Cyberduck, Filezilla, etc..), and mount a network drive with macOS, Windows, or even Linux system's built-in features with Shadow Drive.


FTP access is not enabled on Shadow Drive. Therefore, consider using WebDAV as a fallback if necessary.

To sync a new device or software, you have to create a security token for it. Please follow the steps below to do so:

  1. Log in to your Shadow Drive account and access the web version:

  2. Click on the key_1.pngkey “Sync” icon.

  3. On the new window, you will have a list of your existing tokens. To authorize your software/device to connect to your Shadow Drive, create a new security token by clicking create_token_en.png

  4. Choose a name to identify the token you are generating and click the Create_en.png button

  5. You can now enter the following information in your software/device to connect to Shadow Drive:

    icons8-circled-2-20.png Password
    icons8-circled-3-20.png Webdav URL (server address)

    ⚠️ Warning: Make sure you copy the new personal access token now. You won’t be able to see it again after you switch tabs or close your window.
