Mapping a remote drive using WebDAV software

Unread post by josem2017 » Fri Feb 24, 2017 1:42 pm

I am trying to map efficienty a remote drive for a DS213j.
I have tried NETDRIVE ( and it works but it is very slow.
I have tried EXPANDDRIVE ( as well and it gets faster transfer rates than Netdrive but the program misunderstands the size of the drive. It says 10 TB where it is 1 TB. The developer says that when the program is unable to determine the drive size, it sets a fixed size.

I have two questions for you:
1.- What is the fastest WEBDAV software (propietary or free) for mapping a Synology drive in Windows environment?
2.- How can this problem of unknown drive size be solved using EXPANDRIVE?
