Using WebDrive
One of the big annoyances while editing and posting in any website is probably the upload of a lot of images and files.

I think I've found a great solution, if you have FTP or WebDAV access to your server. Just recently I've installed WebDrive. This software maps folders on a FTP server as a drive letters on Windows. All file operations are then available from within the OS.

You can also list the "hidden" folders so they will appear as standard folders by default when connecting to the "drive". The really cool stuff is that it acts like a mapped drive.

The software has built-in support SSL protocol. When used in conjunction with secure WebDAV, FTP or SFTP servers, WebDrive will open an encrypted tunnel between the client computer and the remote server.

Although I won't be using this feature that much, WebDrive supports WebDAV, the Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning protocol. WebDAV enables collaboration on a centrally located set of files. By mapping a drive letter to a WebDAV server, the software allows users to lock files, modify them, and then release the locks so that others can view and edit. By using WebDAV locking concepts, WebDrive ensures data integrity.
