To enable FTP in your HiDrive account:

  • Open the HiDrive web app in your browser.
  • Select Settings in the menu bar and go to the Access rights and protocols section.
  • Click the pencil icon.
  • Activate FTP.
  • Complete your entry with Save.

Using FileZilla

  • Start FileZilla and use the following data for FTP access to HiDrive:
