Windows RT Surface is a great tablet but the non-pro edition is pretty locked down and getting access to files from the integrated Apps can be an issue. Enter SME Personal Cloud.
Amongst other desktop tools the SME Personal Cloud comes with what we refer to as CloudDav and provides WebDav access to any of the Cloud Storage Accounts that you have mapped to your Account.
Enabling WebDav on the Windows Surface Tablet can be done simply with a batch file in the following format:
NET USE * \\webdav.storagemadeeasy.com@SSL\DavWWWRoot
(or NET USE * \\webdaveu.storagemadeeasy.com@SSL\DavWWWRoot for the SME EU Server)
Once this is done you have a fully functional cloud drive on your Surface Tablet to get to all your public / private cloud files !
Our Windows 8 optimised Surface RT App has been out for a while now but we thought we should formally introduce it on the blog!
The App is optimised for touch and Windows 8 tablets, although it can be used by an Windows 8 OS.
It works with any free, Personal Cloud, or Business Cloud File Server Account, and it is free from the Windows App Store (and to remind those who don’t know the SME Windows Phone App is also available for free from the Windows Phone App Store).
You can see a brief video overview of the App below:
Remember that the full version of our tools is also Windows 8 ready and it includes a native desktop drive, Sync, Microsoft Office Plug In’s and also Microsoft Outlooks secure link sharing. It is available for Personal Cloud and Business Cloud Users.
