What is Dokan File System Driver?


#1

I chose not to install it when I was setting up. Is there any advantage of including it or disadvantage of excluding?


#2

tl;dr: Use dokany if you’re not a power user. Otherwise i would suggest you try it out and if you see some crashes or other bugs regarding dokany, switch to the legacy adapter WebDAV.

The Advantage of using Dokany:

  • no max. file size limit of 4GB (due to the windows WebDAV client to provide access to your vault)
  • speed (depends, some user report that it is utterly slow on their machines)
  • higher system integration (your vault is mounted as a virtual drive, not as a network drive)

Risks: Crashes when put under high load (see here)

Advantages of WebDAV:

  • stability
