Open the web browser, type in the address:

it displays home page (Picture 1). Enter your username and password and then click on Logon. It goes to “My Storage” page where you can see a list of files and folders. You can view image files and text files, download or manage files, share different folders to different users with different permissions. You can also access the Group Administration page and create / manage sub-users.

Please note web browsers for iPhone / iPad do not support file uploading. (This is not a DriveHQ issue). To upload files, you must use FTP or WebDAV, which will be described later.

Browsers on Android and WP support file uploading. So you can upload files using browser, FTP, and WebDAV.

DriveHQ File Manager for mobile platforms will be released in the near future.
