For users of Amazon's S3 service, freeware CloudBerry Explorer is an excellent utility that connects you with your account and makes managing your online file storage as easy as dragging and dropping.

The interface is set up in FTP-style, with a split screen allowing file navigation on your computer and in your S3 account. Modeled as breadcrumbs and not absolute file locations, users can quickly jump between subfolders and their parent directories. A pane on the bottom shows the file transfer progress, but there's a stand-out feature that makes this a serious tool for S3 obsessives. The source drop-down menu is all-powerful here. It lets you decide which location will be displayed on which side of the split-screen. This means that you can have your local hard drive on the right or the left, and the same for any S3 accounts. From that same drop-down menu, you can create a new S3 account, and you can conduct transfers between S3 accounts. One other killer feature is that the interface supports tabs, so you can set up one tab as your computer to your S3 account, and a second or even third tab as S3 to S3. Right-click on a file or folder in a bucket and you can quickly create a download link, encrypt it, view properties, and adjust distribution settings.

Users can initiate registration from within CloudBerry Explorer, and the general layout of the interface in fact mimics Windows Vista's Explorer making for a very gentle learning curve. Buckets can be switched on the fly from the U.S. to the European Union, and there's a proxy pane under Options for those trapped behind firewalls. Whether you use S3 for business or personal use, CloudBerry Explorer streamlines getting your files to where you want them to be.

"It has been crippled"

March 21, 2015  |  By TomSellers

 |  Version: CloudBerry Explorer for Amazon S3 3.8.2.53

Pros

Cloud storage interface

Cons

The best features from the previous versions have been removed to increase sales.

Summary

One of the most important features for managing you cloud files after you upload them is being able to change the ACL settings. In fact Cloudberry realized that having that feature enabled in the free version made the software so usable, no-one really needed to buy it. So they disabled this in the newer free versions, and also added more intrusive messages on the top bar that shame you into buying it. If you want to use a version that has not been functionally crippled and still offers the best useful features, get 3.4.1.13 or earlier by looking for alternative download sources that still have it.
