NetDrive: Unique way to access/manage FTP or WebDAVs

NetDrive is a small program developed by Solution Box, Inc.  It allows you to mount an FTP or WebDav server as a networked drive.  For instance, when you upload files to a web site (if you have one) then you can just open up the My Computer window and open up your site.  Then you can just drag-and-drop into the window the files to upload.

When you first open up NetDrive, it will show a screen like this:

You can enter your site details, like web address, Port, Server type (FTP or WebDav), if it should log into the account when it/your computer starts, and of course, what drive to mount it as.
