Better SkyDrive 25G Support - Part II
Build 60 was released to the Gladinet download page today, which completed a two-part effort (build 48/build 60) of integrating the new SkyDrive into Windows Explorer for beta 1.
SkyDrive is really cool, especially with 25G and features like publishing and sharing with friends. Currently there is no Windows Explorer integration from Microsoft so it is hard to migrate multi-gigabytes of content to SkyDrive. We like SkyDrive and we would like to help promoting the usage of it. We went ahead and did the value-add.
With Gladinet Cloud Desktop, beta build 60, you can do these things:
(1) Drag and drop multiple folders into SkyDrive.
(2) Grab a link in IE or Firefox and drop it directly into SkyDrive's Favorite folder. You can grab a folder full of bookmarks into the Favorite folder too.
(3) Go to a different PC, drag a folder out of SkyDrive and back it up to that PC.
(4) Support both Private folders and Public folders.
Build 60 is a SkyDrive/Amazon S3 focused release. If you are using Google Docs/Picasa, wait for the next release around the end of the month, which will have better support for Google Docs.
Hope the Gladinet Cloud Desktop does a better job for SkyDrive integration this time. Happy New Year 2009!
Now all I need to find out is how to move the 'cache' directory from my C drive to a drive with more space...
As I don't have any problems with mounting SkyDrive, unfortunately I cannot register to Google service(both Docs and Picasa). I can to login into Google normally via website. Any suggestions?
The (for me) killer feature I'm looking for is the ability to map a drive on my Windows Home Server to Gladinet and be able to access it from on the road with my laptop as though it was local (it would save me trying to keep all my music on the laptop but I could freshen up the Zune from my library) ... any ETA on that?
Right now we close the standard invitation, to concentrate on the stand-alone version. We'll start to send out the inviation by April-June time frame.
The uploading application, yours in this case, needs to have on the fly, STANDARD ARCHIVAL chunking options. Simple part-splitting tool, RAR, or ZIP.
Proprietary chunking is wholly unacceptable
It should also create PAR2 files to 15% by default.
It should be alble to create a user-side structure that can be imposed on skydrive.
It should be able to "FXP" from SkyDrive to other storage facilities.. even if OTHER skydrives
