Our recommendation: DRACOON for Mac
With DRACOON for Mac you can also mount DRACOON as a volume in macOS and have the following advantages over WebDAV:
- Direct access to previous file versions
- Support for encrypted data rooms
- Creation of shares and file requests directly from within the Finder
- Better performance
To integrate DRACOON as a network drive via WebDAV, select the item Go in the menu bar while in the Finder, then select Connect to Server, or use the keyboard shortcut “CMD + K”.
Now enter the URL that is visible in your DRACOON web client when you click Connect as drive while viewing a data room. To avoid potential errors, consider that spelling in macOS is case-sensitive.
Enter the username and password of the DRACOON account to which you want to gain access to.
Depending on the login method, the username must be entered in a format appropriate for that method:
- When logging in with your email address, it is sufficient to enter it in the Name field, e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org
- When logging in via an Active Directory account (see image above), the user name must be entered as follows: ad\username. Entering ad\ before the user name is mandatory in this case and cannot be replaced by a NetBIOS domain name.
If the username and password were successfully entered, the respective data room will displayed in the Drive Overview as a network drive/share, so that files and folders can be edited and shared just like on a normal drive.
