Accessing OneDrive using WebDAV
Before you can mount OneDrive via WebDav, you have to find out your “OneDrive ID“. To do this, log in to onedrive.live.com with your Microsoft account.
When you are logged into OneDrive, you will see your OneDrive ID in your browsers address bar after “cid=”. You will need this ID in the next steps.
The WebDAV URL for OneDrive is https://d.docs.live.net/[your OneDrive ID].
By the way, you can access another user’s public folder with their OneDrive ID.
Mount OneDrive in Windows File Explorer via WebDAV
Using the OneDrive app, you can also access your data in the cloud without WebDAV. However, if you prefer to use OneDrive via WebDAV, you can connect the service with these steps:
1. First open the file explorer and click on »This PC« in the bar on the left. Then click on »Add network location« at the top. In Windows 11, you must first click on the three dots in the navigation bar and then select »Add network location«.
2. In this window, first click on »Next«, then select »Choose a custom network location« and click on »Next« again.
3. Then enter the WebDAV URL for OneDrive in the “Internet or network address” field – that is https://d.docs.live.net/[your OneDrive ID].
At the end, enter your personal OneDrive ID.
Then confirm with »Next«.
4. In the last step you have to enter your user name (i.e. your e-mail address) and your password. Now you can use OneDrive via WebDAV in the file explorer.
