Accessing Disk over WebDAV

The “Yandex.Disk” application lets you sync your files directly from your computer. If for whatever reason you cannot install the application (if you use Linux for example) or you do not want to store a complete Disk backup on your computer, we recommend using the Yandex.Disk web interface or a WebDAV application.

General Disk settings

Please use the following settings when connecting to Yandex.Disk via WebDAV:

Server address: https://webdav.yandex.com

Login (Username): your Yandex username.

Password: your password on Yandex (or application password if you switched on two-factor authentication).

Note. Windows may not support WebDAV connections over HTTPS (and show an “Invalid folder name” error). If this happens, try changing the server address to http://webdav.yandex.com.

Attention. Third-party software may have limitations on the amount and size of uploaded files, unrelated to Disk.

Problems accessing Yandex.Disk over WebDAV

I received an error message

If you receive an error message when trying to connect over WebDAV, please ensure that you have used the correct access settings. Check that your password is correct, Caps Lock is off and your keyboard input language is correct. You should also make sure that you have enough free space on Yandex.Disk for the files you want to upload. Keep in mind that files must can't exceed 10 GB.

Note. Please note, you can only connect to the WebDAV server using SSL encryption. If the program you are using does not support SSL, you will not be able to connect.
Invalid folder name. Please enter another name.

This problem is caused by a Windows glitch, which means WebDAV connections are not supported over HTTPS. We are currently working on resolving this issue.

Low connection speed

We don't impose any strict restrictions on uploads over WebDAV. However, some WebDAV clients process files locally before uploading them to the server.

Windows Explorer, davfs2 and several other programs work this way. When using Windows Explorer, the file will be processed locally on your computer and will only be uploaded to our server webdav.yandex.com later. The file transfer speed displayed in our app represents the file processing speed and not the upload rate. This is a characteristic of the WebDAV client.
