Mount point for large FTP server

2018-12-06

Thus far I'd FTP calls in the big data analysis code.

Pros

The fact that this allows for easy creation of a local mount point for massive remote storage devices.

Cons

I use Web-Drive on Win-10. It was hard to find the mount point location on the Windows bash kernel.

Great software but one license per computer.

2019-06-11

Pros

Easily access all of your online data without syncing everything to your computer.

Cons

This negates the main benefit of having your data online unless you purchase multiple expensive licenses.

Very good for SFTP connection!!

2019-02-22

I frequently have to do data analysis with the data obtained from these simulations and hence WebDrive becomes immensely useful here when working remotely.

Pros

My research involves computer simulations and hence I am able to use SFTP connection to my university account where I run simulations and store data. Using WebDrive has been a blessing as I can update my simulations and extract data for analysis remotely and this has been specially useful during visit to another cities for conferences.

Cons

Nothing really. I have used this product without any issues.

Straightforward way to utilize cloud storage

2019-03-27

Overall solves my problem of have a reliable means of storing data in the cloud my way.

Pros

This software enables me to use cloud storage in, to me, an intuitive way, by regarding it as another drive. After struggling with consumer software which was trying to manage back up and synch for me and causing a series of confusing problems, I decide the easiest method was to utilize WebDrive, use its backup capability, or other copy software where needed to meet my needs. This way I can reliably know what is being done.

Cons

It took a bit to grasp some of the configuration terms and ideas, but once I had sufficient (not complete) understanding I set it, and never looked back.

Fast and reliable service

2020-12-27

Because I am transferring data with peace of mind.

Pros

Security is always an issue when connecting, transmitting and accessing data on our servers, so it is a great choice for a reliable connection since we do not encounter such a problem in WebDrive.

Cons

The only thing I can criticize is the cost. I found the cost a little high.

Really efficient

2020-03-03

We needed to see the nas folders as if they were windows explorer folders, from remote locations, outside the local network, with multiple users simultaneously. The solution had to be simple for non-expert users and I solved the problem with webdrive.

Pros

It represents a real solution for work from home, connected via various platforms.

Cons

Quick installation and an excellent presale service

Great product for mapping to Sharepoint site

2018-08-20

Accessing files via Sharepoint website or Teams did not work well at all with non-Microsoft files; IE: Adobe products.

Pros

Easy to install and setup.

Cons

Only one and there maybe an option for this & have not found it. Have to login for each drive mapping.

Response from South River Technologies


Hi David!
Thanks for sharing your thoughts. There is actually a way to have sites connect automatically at login time.

Under Site Properties --> General Host Settings (may also be named by the connection type depending on what connector you're using e.g. "SharePoint Settings"), there is a setting for "Connect at login/startup." This needs to be enabled.

Also, under App Settings --> Settings, "Run in taskbar tray at startup" needs to be enabled. Wired Ethernet connections work best, but wireless often works as well. If there is still an issue connecting, the wireless connection may be connecting some time after login, causing WebDrive's attempt to connect at login to fail (no Internet established yet).

Please reach out if you have any trouble. We will be happy to assist!

2018-08-13

brilliant. I just sent a support request and expected to wait a day. I had a full technical response in under 5 mins! amazing

Pros

it just works, never fails. half the time I forget it's there. just how good system software should be

Cons

It is a tad too expensive for those of us who are smaller businesses. But it works well so I guess I can't complain ;-)

Best, most feature-rich cloud-drive tool I've come across

2018-07-09

Makes working with cloud and local files a lot easier. I's all withing a few clicks way.

Pros

I found out about WebDrive because I searched for a product that supported a wide rage of cloud storage services.

Cons

The plethora of advanced options are a little overwhelming, and the manual isn't too clear on all of them. Lucily, Support helped me out with the few questions I had. The advanced options are a must if you want to improve performance, because Windows isn't too.. keen on a Google Drive drive, for instance. You'll want to do something with caching and other tweaks.

Customer Support that deserves great business

2018-06-20

Being able to connect up to Office 365 / Sharepoint without having to reconnect after a shutdown/reboot.

Pros

Software works great and the support is outstanding. There was an issue I had while testing the trial version that didn't quite fit what my client's needs were. I contacted support and we were able to fix the issue promptly and I was sent a new version of the program with the fix implemented. Worked perfectly after that.

Cons

The only issue I had with this program ended up becoming a Pro. A feature of the Sharepoint Online wasn't quite working right but support was amazing and able to get it fixed and working as needed.

A good tool with exceptional support seals the deal for me

2020-06-19

I can't say enough about the customer support I received here. After some issues with large file size downloads, the support team was extremely hands on and spent many hours working with me to resolve the issue. Many companies could use to learn from these guys.

Pros

The software is easy to use and set up.

Cons

I had some issues with large downloads, but the support team was exceptionally responsive and hands on to resolve them.
