PO.DAAC's WebDAV interface allows you to connect to PO.DAAC as if it were a local drive on your computer. In order to connect with WebDAV, you'll need to use your Earthdata Login username and the WebDAV password that's been assigned to you.

PO.DAAC Drive supports Windows 10.

Windows 10: Click Start/File Explorer. In the left-hand menu, right-click My PC and select Map Network Drive.

Choose the desired drive letter you'd like to see PO.DAAC resources to appear under, then type or paste the following URL:
https://podaac-tools.jpl.nasa.gov/drive/files

Check Connect using different credentials and click Finish.

When prompted to log in, use your Earthdata Login username and WebDAV password.

You can now browse PO.DAAC files and copy them to your computer just as you would with a local hard drive. It's best to copy a file to your computer before opening it.

To disconnect, right-click the drive and select Disconnect.

If you experience a slow connection or issues logging in, try going to Control Panel/Internet Options, select the Connections tab, click LAN settings and uncheck the Automatically detect settings box. For more information, see https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2445570.
