What is WebDAV?
WebDAV is an old internet protocol that extends HTTP. It lets a web server act as a file server as well. It allows you to upload, download, edit, and move files and folders on a web server. When you use a WebDAV client with CloudStor, the web server it uses is the CloudStor service.
