Really don’t know how it would affect how much storage space a hard drive has.
It affects how Microsoft DISPLAYS the storage space a hard drive has.
If you were to copy 48 GB to that share, it would continue to display 49GB, because Microsoft displays the remaining space of your PRIMARY drive (most likely C:) for ALL WebDav-mounted drives.
TonyPh12345, I am surprised that I only get a couple hits for Microsoft pertaining to WebDAV. Is this not part of Microsoft’s protocols? I never installed WebDAV so how did it get installed/turned on? Wouldn’t I have to really go out of my way to get this installed and working? Or am I just not using the right search terms?
You’re searching HERE, right? There’s TONS of stuff on WebDAV issues here, and numerous posts on “fixes.” I don’t know them off the top of my head because my PCs aren’t exhibiting the problem.
No, it’s not part of Microsoft’s protocols. It’s an IETF-defined protocol (RFC 4918), which Windows (Vista and later) supports natively and is installed as part of the base OS.
But no one has ever pinned down why Microsoft computers PREFER to connect via WebDAV when they are told instead to connect via CIFS.
