Virtual Disk Yandex. Photos

    Sometimes it may be necessary to quickly copy several photos from your album on the Yandex.Fotok service, of course, there is a special program, but it is not always possible to install it on someone else's computer. I developed a small service that can greatly simplify this process. By typing in windows the net use y command : http: // <address> / <login> / , where <address> is equal to "", and <login> is your login on Yandex photos (password not needed), you will connect a network drive, the folders on which are albums (only those that are accessible to everyone), and the files are photos on the Yandex.Fotki service. Now you can copy them like regular files with your favorite file manager. Details (and pictures) under the cut.

    The Yandex.Fotki virtual disk looks and works like a regular disk, all albums and photos on such a disk are presented in the form of folders and files.

    To connect the drive does not require additional software, you connect it to Windows, like a regular network drive.

    You can connect a virtual disk to any user of the Yandex.Fotki service, of course, only in read mode.

    For example, in order to connect such a disk in Windows 7, you need to go to the “Computer” folder and press the “Connect network drive” button to enter the address in the line “Folder”


    Example of an open album folder :


    Unfortunately, the Yandex.Fotok API does not provide the file size of the original photo, therefore, to speed up the service, in viewing mode, the size of all photos is one byte.

    This service is provided free of charge without any warranty. The service is currently tested on the operating systems Windows 7, Windows XP.
