tilizing NAS for True Cloud-to-Cloud Transfer!

Step 1: Obtain the Aliyun Drive Token Value

Mounting a local hard drive: In addition to serving as a traditional cloud drive, Aliyun Drive can also function as a local hard drive, allowing remote calls via the web interface and more. To achieve these functionalities, you must obtain the token value of Aliyun Drive. Open your web browser and log in to Aliyun Drive. After a successful login, press the F12 key on your keyboard (or ctrl + shift + i) to open the 'Developer Tools.' Then, navigate to: Application → Local Storage → token. Open the token, and find the reflashtoken at the bottom. The code following reflashtoken is your token value.

Step 2: Install the Messense Image

After obtaining the token value, open Xsky, run Docker. If Docker service is not yet enabled, make sure to enable it in the system settings. Open Docker, go to Images → Registry, and search for 'messense/aliyundrive-webdav.' Click on the first result to download and install.

Step 3: Configure the Messense Image

Once the Messense image is installed, double-click to open it. Find the 'File Path' and click 'Add.' Create a new Docker folder and within it, create a subfolder named 'aliyundrive.' Click 'OK.' In the 'Mount Path,' enter /etc/aliyundrive-webdav. Next, configure the 'Port' settings with the local port as 8888 and the container port as 8080.

Finally, for 'Environment' settings, add three lines with names and values:

  1. Name: WEBDAVAUTHUSER, Value: admin
  2. Name: WEBDAVAUTHPASSWORD, Value: Set your WebDav mount password
  3. Name: REFRESH_TOKEN, Value: Your Aliyun Drive token value.

After entering the details, click 'Apply.'

Step 4: Mount Aliyun Drive

With all preparations complete, you can now mount Aliyun Drive. First, open your personal space in Xsky, click the '+' next to 'External Devices.' Choose 'WebDav,' and click to open. Here, enter the following:

  • IP: Your Xsky IP address
  • Port: 8888
  • Path: /
  • Select HTTP
  • Account: admin
  • Password: The WebDav password you set earlier.

After filling in the details, click 'Confirm.'

Step 5: Cloud-to-Cloud Transfer

After successful mounting, you can not only easily access files in Aliyun Drive but also perform various operations. For example, you can upload files from Xsky to Aliyun Drive or download files from Aliyun Drive to Xsky, achieving true cloud-to-cloud transfer. Using downloading as an example, copy video files from Aliyun Drive to the TV series folder in Xsky.

By moving files to Xsky, you don't have to worry about insufficient Aliyun Drive capacity – it's a win-win situation. Of course, for added security, you can choose double backup. The advantage of having a NAS is that you only need to assign the download task to it and then leave it unattended.

Additionally, if you don't have a NAS and are using Aliyun Drive just to watch shows, you can directly download VidHub. You can also directly mount Aliyun Drive to VidHub for viewing in the original resolution, automatically scraping posters and show information, and even downloading subtitles.
