There are two main ways to access files on filePOD’s SD card. One is using the standard USB Mass Storage Mode; the other is to use a built-in WebDAV server.
In this article, we will show the process behind utilizing a WebDAV server. Please note that when using the WebDAV approach, while you can access the SD card from your host computer using native file manager applications (e.g. MacOS Finder or Microsoft Windows Explorer), filePOD’s 2-way-sync applications (e.g. Dropbox and Google Drive) can be accessing the SD card simultaneously.
Using WebDAV to access files on the FilePOD’s SD card does not require any third-party software. Mac operating system can all do this out-of-the-box
Mac OS X has built-in WebDAV support. On your Mac OS X computer, start the Finder application. Open the Finder, click the Go menu, and select Connect to Server to see the Connect to Server dialog (See Picture 1).
Type a server address to connect to the WebDAV server. For example, you’d enter http://myfilepod.io:3000 (See Picture 2).
After you did, you’d be prompted for a username and password. If your WebDAV server is configured with username /password you would enter it or otherwise select Guest (See Pictures 3 and 4).
You’ll then be able to browse its contents and download files directly from the Finder window (Picture 5 and 6).
