I'm using windows and I need to add my s3 buckets as a network drive on my system. I've found 3 applications: webdrive, tntdrive and gladient. I want to know the idea behind doing this so I could do it myself. Because first, they are not free and second, I need an application with possibility of running from command line.

To mount an S3 filebucket as a network drive, you'd need a filesystem driver that supports it. I'm not aware of any such driver for Windows that's native. Unless you find some application that comes bundled with the driver (AWS forum link to this topic), you're down to writing one.

So you are saying all those three applications have their own driver? – AliBZ Aug 23 '12 at 23:37
@AliBZ Yes, they must install their own driver software to function. – Jeff Ferland Aug 23 '12 at 23:45
Could you give me some tips on where and how to start implementing this? – AliBZ Aug 23 '12 at 23:46
That's way more than a single Q&A question. Start here: – Jeff Ferland Aug 23 '12 at 23:54
