How to set up a WebDav server with RCLONE in Windows

Rclone can be used to serve files over WebDav. You can serve any folder or remote. In this video, I’ll show you how to set it up along with how to add users, limit file access, how to access the files over the internet, and how to secure your server if you have an SSL certificate.

Regedit values
Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WebClient\Parameters

Set BasicAuthLevel = 2 (to allow basic auth over SSL and non-SSL)

Set FileSizeLimitInBytes to Decimal and set value to 4294967295 (for 4 gigs)
