How to connect my existing FTP server with Alfresco (or shall i mount the drivers ? )

Jump to solution

Originally i want to connect confluence with my FTP server to import Documents from it, but i found that i could use alfresco  plugins with confluence so i create alfresco server and it's working fine with confluence ( i can see my uploaded fies in confluence ) but  now we have our existing FTP server (which contain more than 2T Documents ), so my question is how to use my existing FTP server Document to be shown as if i uploaded it in alfresco 

- may be there is a way to mount my shared document into alfresco shared folder 

- is it possible to use WebDav for it ?

Alfresco provides no functionality to include any existing file storage location (FTP, network drive etc.) "as if" the documents had been uploaded to Alfresco. The only way would be to really transfer those documents to Alfresco.
