Great app, works pretty much exactly like NetDrive, but is free, as long as you don't need to map more than 8 drives (limited to 8 per install).

Great app. Does what netdrive does just without so many connections but it's new and it's free. Best cloud storage solution.

On the face of it this application is excellent.

It provides a way to map multiple cloud storage solutions to PC drives.

This has a number of possible advantages.

It potentially allows you simultaneous connection to two or more DropBoxes (not tested above two), for example, which the standard DropBox driver doesn't. As the cloud drive is mapped it does not take up the same disk space as the DropBox which replicates the Dropbox folder on your hard disk (yes I know you don't have to replicate all files).

Unfortunately it doesn't seem to work very well. Oh, it makes the connection to your second DropBox and maps it as a drive, but on reboot it seems to forget the storage access credentials and you have to enter details all over again. Ammendment: OK so unlike standard Windows drive mapping, the 'connect using different credentials' check box option means don't store the credentials log in again on every reboot. Keeping this option unchecked allows the credentials to be used after a reboot.

Add to the fact that this process accesses the RaiDrive.com website, with no indication of what information has been passed to the website, this may represent a severe security risk. Ammendment: Please see the developers comments below.

A quick search of the internet provides us with low confidence of this product (which I originally acquired through Amazon) ScamAdvisor.com gives this website a safety rating of 20%. I couldn't find much else about it.

Its a pity really, because none of the alternatives I have tried come close to RaiDrive for ease of use, all in a free App (which in itself is also suspicious). Though a commercial version is coming soon. Let's hope they don't make the same mistake other freemium developers make, when they release a paid for version of a much loved freebie.

If it is safe it could still do with a few additional enhancements, mostly around the number of storage types it supports.

It supports the main cloud storage providers, Google, OneDrive and DropBox, along with S/FTP and WebDAV, but there is no support for S3 or Azure. Or for other cloud storage suppliers Zoolz, Degoo, Mozy etc.

Although the website does give details on how to connect to a number of different NAS devices Synology, QNAP, etc. Netgear devices aren't supported.

Dear Sir or Madam,

We are the official RaiDrive Support and thanks a lot for your opinions and suggestions.
For all current, future and past user we thought it would be better to explain in detail.

Q: Unfortunately it doesn't seem to work very well. Oh, it makes the connection to your second DropBox and maps it as a drive, but on reboot it seems to forget the storage access credentials and you have to enter details all over again.
A: We recommend to un-check "Connect using different credentials" and expect to solve this issue.

Q: Add to the fact that this process accesses the RaiDrive.com website, with no indication of what information has been passed to the website, this may represent a severe security risk.
A: When you install RaiDrive package, you can see "License terms and conditions" which includes "indiccation of what information has been passed to RaiDrive and Google Analytics". But as everybody knows it's so hard for end-user to clarify. So we will publish more information on the website.

Q: ScamAdvisor.com gives this website a safety rating of 20%. I couldn't find much else about it.
A: We knew ScamAdvisor.com report and requested the reason why our site is so risky(still waiting for them). ONLY clear things are that RaiDrive company is located in South Korea beside North Korea(peace with you) and Chinese user visits frequently. Also there are NO SignUp/SignIn/Basket on our website. We hope for ScamAdvisor.com to be really fair.

Q: in a free App (which in itself is also suspicious).
A: We will announce the commercial version also and soon. A free app is the part of usual markerting strategies.

Q: supports AWS S3, Azure, Zoolz, Degoo, Mozy etc and Netgear
A: We absolutely agree with you, This features will be released in the commercial version.

You gave the chance to examine ourselves and to step forward. Really appreciate.
We will always try to enhance the user experience and happiness.

Best Regards,
RaiDrive Support

Works pretty good on Windows 10. Lacks tons of storage hosts; Backblaze, Box, Sync, etc. Tried to use this with my Server 2016 install. Won't let me; Says it's not a supported OS. Guessing they are going to release a "commercial" version. Another company who doesn't acknowledge the fact home users use Windows Server as well, not just businesses.

App works great on my Windows machine.

Literally the only thing that sucks is there's no Mac version available.
