Use the Settings (gear icon) for your connection to edit any additional settings if desired.
If issues arise, open the main App Settings for WebDrive, click the Logging dropdown, and set the Logging level to “Debug”. Replicate the issue and then send over the resulting log file to the support team for review.
    You can submit this directly within the app by clicking on the three vertical dots (More Actions) at the top right of the main menu and choosing “Submit Ticket”, or you can login to our support portal and create a ticket there and then attach the log file. The log file can be found by clicking on the Logging tab in the main App Settings menu and then clicking on the Arrow icon to “View Logs”.
