Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Question says it all: there must be one that stands a head-and-shoulders above the rest...which is it? I've got a few bits of software that would like to store syncable data on a WebDav server...

Box.net comes highly recommended. Webdav access is available through https://www.box.net/dav - but only for paying customers.

Their free Lite account will give you 1 GB of storage, though individual files cannot be larger than 25 MB each.

I knew about box.net but I had had ify experiences with it. Since no-one else has offered an alternative I'll accept your answer... –  jkp May 8 '09 at 12:20
+1 for Box.net. They're very good. –  Tom O'Connor Feb 9 '11 at 15:48

Apache's mod_dav has worked well for me.

Yeah, its true I guess...It means setting up a web server though...was hoping more for a free service. –  jkp May 6 '09 at 14:09

I would suggest taking a look at: http://www.ajaxfilebrowser.com/. No registration is needed it will automatically create a folder for you when you access it first time.


You can give http://dropdav.com/ a try. It enables to access a dropbox account with WebDAV.


you can also try 4shared.com http: //webdav.4shared.com:80/wa you can get 15GB for free But the webdav works only for WinXP or Linux Link to get it working http://www.4shared.com/faq.jsp#q36


Update: box.net does not offer free WebDAV anymore, sorry. You should try other providers. I use http://www.cloudsafe.com - they offer 2GB of free online storage and free WebDAV access can be easily enabled for every safe.
