Creating Mounts

Mounting is a tool which links one dDrive to another as a subfolder. It is probably one of the dWeb's most powerful features. Mounts can be used to make collections, to attach code-module dependencies, and more.

A mounted dDrive will act just like a subfolder. If you are not the creator of the mounted dDrive, you will be unable to write to it, even if the containing dDrive is yours.
