Files: Access as a Local Drive



PLEASE NOTE: If you are using a TonidoPlug and want to access your files in your LAN, it is more efficient to connect to the USB drive as a network share.

See TonidoPlug: Access as a Drive



You will need a TonidoPro subscription or have a TonidoPlug Hardware device

Access your Tonido server files like you would access any other files your hard disk on your Windows based PC. TonidoDrive is fully secure and is built using a robust Windows filesystem driver so you can access your files with confidence. 

Please follow the steps below to install and use Tonido Drive:

Install Tonido Drive

Download Tonido Drive from: 

Settings for Map as Local Drive in Tonido

To map all your drives in the machine that Tonido runs, simply use the following information (assuming 'john' is your Tonido user name):


          User: john

          Password: <tonido account password>


When using Port Forwarding

If you are using port forwarding instead of using the default relay service you will need to substitute port 80 with the actual port your Tonido server is running on (Default 10001).

Other Notes

Note that not all applications work perfectly with drives mounted this way. You might experience slow response times and delays in browsing and doing functions you are normally used to doing with regular local drives. This is a limitation of this technology.
