The following terms from our free
disk space guide are defined on this page:
Web Folders are a way that some free internet hard drive services support the
ability to easily transfer files to and from their web server. With
this you can simply drag and drop files in Windows Explorer just as if their web
server were another local hard disk in your computer system.. A Web folder is a shortcut to a Web server where you can publish or save files. When you create new Web folders, they are stored in a folder called Web Folders in the root directory of your computer. You can access Web Folders from Windows Explorer, from My Computer, or from the Open or Save As dialog box (File menu) in Microsoft
Word 2000 or any Office 2000 application.
The Web Folders component is included in
Microsoft Office 2000 and Internet Explorer 5. If you don't have Web
Folders installed on your computer, you download Internet Explorer 5 from
Microsoft. When you install Internet Explorer, be sure to select Web
Folders under Web Authoring Components to install the Web Folders

space by referring friends, completing surveys, filling out personal profiles,
or other tasks.
This field indicates whether you are able to get additional internet hard disk space by
paying for it.
In this section all the special features and limitations of each free disk space
explained. For those providers that offer extra free space, this section
also explains what tasks are required and how much hard disk space is awarded
for each task. Since almost all the services provide the ability to share
files, to secure private files, and can be used with any web browser, these
capabilities are implied. Only when there are exceptions is it explicitly
mentioned in the comments field.
