In the Start menu, select My Network Places.

Play out the fitting activities for your framework:

Other Windows operating systems — Click the symbol for the area that relates to the Web Disk account’s space.

Windows® XP — Click Add a network place, click Next, select Choose another network location, and then pursue the prompts to finish the configuration procedure.

 

Important:

If you use Windows XP, Windows® Vista, or Windows® 2003, you may encounter errors when you endeavor to associate with your Web Disk account. These working frameworks require a fix that Microsoft no longer offers, and it no longer bolsters these working frameworks.

If you use Windows® 7, a disparity may exist between the measure of disk space that the framework reports and the real accessible disk space. This happens on the grounds that the WebDAV convention, which Web Disk utilizes, can’t query a server’s disk limit. For more data, read Microsoft Support’s article about this issue.
