WebDav for Windows

Another can’t believe nobody’s had this particular problem before. Anyways, lots of notes consolidated.

Windows (XP and newer) insists on Digest Auth for DAV even with SSL. httpd can not do digest if you’re delegating auth to a module, eg mod_ldap.

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WebClient\Parameters\BasicAuthLevel=1

Windows also caps file size at 50MB.

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WebClient\Parameters\FileSizeLimitInBytes=0xffffffff

Win7 Robocopy adds /MT:xx switch for multi-threading.
