What is a Virtual Drive and How to Use it?

A virtual drive is a quick and easy way to access your Documents – without the Mailfence interface!

In this guide, we will cover what a virtual drive is, and how to set it up on your computer.

What is a virtual drive?

A virtual drive is a software component that emulates an actual disk drive. To other programs, a virtual drive looks and behaves like an actual physical device.

The virtual drive allows you to access your documents directly (without a Web browser). Documents are in a special folder on your computer, protected with a username and a password.

This folder acts as a standard folder: you can add, delete and/or rename files and subfolders. You can also open a file from the folder or from an application on your computer. The virtual drive is also an easy way to back-up the files stored on your personal computer.

This means that you can view your Mailfence Documents alongside your other folders and files, directly on your computer.

How to set up a virtual drive in your Mailfence account

To access the virtual drive options, head over to Settings > Documents > Virtual drive.

You will then see a list of operating systems. Select your operating system, and follow the on-screen instructions.
