    Is it possible to port davfs2 to Windows?
    How much work would it involve?

    I can get Web Folders to work with BarracudaDrive, but not mini redirector. The authentication sucks in the redirector.

      Hello Wilfred,

      don't know. But I can't because I am not familiar with the windows file system implementation.

      As davfs2 uses coda as kernel filesystem and there is a coda implementation for windows, maybe someone else can do it.

      Windows redirector:
      Configuring the redirector for WebDAV on windows seems to be tricky and is hardly documented. I too failed to get it running, but it did not try consequently. So maybe there is just one of these windows "click here" tricks we are missing.

      Greetings
      Werner

      Werner,
      We all hate windows and we prefer not to get into its crappy API’s.

      Anyway, how many users are using Windows compared to Linux?
      This can potentially be beneficial to you if you make a port and set it up as donationware.

      Regards,
      Wilfred
