It seems to be impossible to properly use WebDev to mount read-write repositories on Windows machines (tested with Windows 10).
If you allow Anonymous to read Artifactory repositories, Windows will always mount them as read-only, even if you manually specify the credentials to be used using the net use command.
After you remove the anonymous access to the repositories, Windows will mount them in a way that is only partially writable:
- You will be able to delete files
- You will be able to upload new files but the md5/sha1 files will not be generated for them.
- You will not be able to create or delete directories.
