Share Local Drives via RDP

In addition to accessing your Web24 cloud server remotely, you can using the Remote Desktop Connection program to copy files from your machine to the Web24 server.

Note: This method should only be used to transfer a small amount of data.

Security warning: If your local machine has any virus/malware, using this method may infect your server. Use this method with caution. As always, we recommend you have antivirus software on your VPS hosting system. It is good practice to disable the resource sharing once you have copied the data across.
