Cloud storage services like Dropbox, Google Drive, and OneDrive provide a desktop client app which makes it easy for you to access your cloud files. However, installing the “official” client of a cloud storage service is not efficient if you have a laptop with a low storage capacity.
These “official” clients work by syncing your cloud files to your desktop. This moves your cloud files into local storage, which also means that they take up local storage space. This is ideal for backups, but not much else.
Is there a way to access cloud files without downloading them to local storage? Of course. Tools like WebDrive can be used to mount cloud drive accounts as local drives.
WebDrive also provides remote access to your cloud files. With this tool installed on your computer, you can mount your cloud drive accounts as local drives to access your cloud files via the file manager of your operating system. WebDrive supports popular cloud storage services like Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, SharePoint, and Amazon S3. Less popular cloud storage services like Box are also supported by WebDrive. WebDrive is a premium app for Mac and Windows. A trial version is also available.
