Editors' Review

+

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.

"Horrible Product"

February 18, 2014  |  By slammyj

 |  Version: OpenDrive 1.0.25

Pros

None.
OpenDrive support: December 02, 2013 05:11 PM: I am attempting to access the following folder through my finder on my mac: XX. I don't have a screen shot. The retry/cancel option kept coming up over and over despite which selection I made. I would have to force quit on finder and relaunch to get it to go away and use finder again. This product is "buggy". I often get connection issues (disconnected and have to reconnect), it won't pull up files quickly, and sometimes files are incomplete, missing, or even today I had one that had a 1969 year in the date modified column and couldn't access the file. I had to delete it and then go back and get an archived version to add it back to OpenDrive. I am trying to go cloud based with my company for file access and get rid of my server, but have to keep my in house server online because of these types of errors. Am I tring to do too much with this service?

Cons

Open Drive Support Response:
Unfortunately, we cannot troubleshoot the issues completely until your Operating System is supported. I will place the ticket in pending status, so I can notify you when Mavericks is supported in our Mac application.

We will be releasing an update soon, but the next update will not include Mavericks support. You are welcome to try it if you would like, but there will be some features, such as the secure files folder, that will be disabled temporarily.

Please let me know if you continue experiencing issues. I will forward it for investigation to make sure the issues are resolved in the release that includes Mavericks support.

Sincerely,

support.opendrive.com
support@opendrive.com

Summary

I'd highly recommend to anyone that is thinking about cloud storage/archive/backup to "test drive" several services side-by-side for the 30 day free period that most services offer and do your own comparison. The result will be that you will avoid OpenDrive.

"Massive upload problems, nonexistent tech support."

January 10, 2014  |  By deeds66

 |  Version: OpenDrive 1.0.25

Pros

Sounds good when you sign up.

Cons

Uploads are incredibly slow and full of errors.
Where are your files? Good question - no answers from tech support.
Same ticket open for more than a week with no hope of an answer.
For every 5 files that uploaded correctly, one would error out.
Don't waste your money.

Summary

Absolutely terrible.

"Direct file linking is great; transfer speeds slow"

December 13, 2013  |  By Mesasandmusic

 |  Version: OpenDrive 1.0.25

Pros

Good storage size for the various account plans. Allows playback of audio files in a player.

Cons

Upload speeds have been quite slow for some time. I've had their service for two years, and at times, it's made the service almost unusable. However, it looks like they've improved the speed somewhat so at least it's usable.

Summary

You get what you pay for. While the service does provide ample space for the paid accounts, the speed issues are enough that I can't give it five stars. Once upload speeds are improved, this is easily a 4-5 star service.

"Ease with grace... ..."

December 07, 2013  |  By ravepupu

 |  Version: OpenDrive 1.0.25

Pros

Super easy to upload stuff via its drag and drop option.
Hotlink accessible in closed-off realms like China as well.

Cons

Like almost anything else online, if one wanted better service, one must pay.

Summary

All in all, worth the time.
