Store important files in the cloud using OpenDrive for Mac

Save files to cloud storage and access them from anywhere, at any time with OpenDrive for Mac.

Many options exist for users who want to save files for access while away from their computer. OpenDrive for Mac provides a sizeable amount of storage space without cost, and has the features expected of a storage program.

Available as a free version with a limit of 5GB of storage, OpenDrive for Mac also comes with monthly paid options for personal and business use with additional storage, including unlimited use. The program's native installer places it directly in the applications folder, but does require the acceptance of a user agreement. There is little to the interface with the exception of a small icon on the top menu next to the wireless indicator. After the user selects it, the program prompts the user to create an account, which then brings up a set of folders. Users can drag and drop documents, movies, music, and other types of files into them. With a click on the sync option in the drop-down menu, the program uploads these to the cloud storage. The cloud's menu is very intuitive and easy to decipher without instructions. This same menu also allows upgrades to personal and business options with more storage and additional options. The synced files upload quickly for later access.

While the free option has limited storage space for substantial files, the ability to expand into more cloud space makes OpenDrive for Mac a good option for outside storage.
