The free version provides for up to storing 50 passwords, 10 MB of storage data, an done beneficiary. The app offers three different paid options that all offer unlimited passwords and differ in the amount of stored data and the number of beneficiaries you may need.  The most expensive plan offers 100 GB of stored data and 20 beneficiaries for less than $13 USD/month.  The lower grade is a result that we would like to see more of the features offered with the free version.

50GB Free Online Storage, Backup & Share

50GB of free online storage, backup, access your files, music, photos & share – with ADrive

Get 50GB of free online storage space with this app, create folders and sub-folders, your private information is never deleted and your public- “share’ files are active for 14 days (you can select to re-share as many times as needed). Getting started is easy, create a folder name or begin uploading files from your computer(s). After the file(s) has been uploaded, you will have several options when you right click on the file or view the options at the bottom of the page.  You can also click on “Create Directory” to create a directory (folder) that can contain multiple files and this app also includes a built-in feature that allows you to upload multiple files or directories (folders) at once, you can even upload a single file containing 2 GB (2048 megabytes) and up to 1000 files!  The available file types currently include documents, spreadsheets, photos, music, and videos.

Now that you have some files, you can select to “Share” which moves the file to your “My Shared Files” directory and a unique web link will be generated so that you can share with anyone on the Internet (they do not need an account).  The recipient of your shared files only needs to click the link to download. You can also use the “Email-A-Friend” feature. Just right click on your shared file and click on the button, enter the desired email address, and the email will be sent to your friend providing a link to download the shared file.

Files that you create as “Public Shared” as part of the Free account will expire after 14 days from when the file was originally shared. You are still able to re-share these files as many times as you like (although the link will change).

The app has also partnered with Zoho® to offer users the ability to edit Word and Excel files online (IE & FireFox currently). All you need to do is right-click on the file and click the “Edit in Zoho” button option. Make any desired changes and then save the file before closing the Zoho® program. This also provides users with the ability to save as the uploaded or edited document as a PDF by selecting the “Print Option” while still using the Zoho® program (Zoho® feature currently only available to edit Word and Excel files).  For other file types, you could select to download the desired file to your computer, make any edits via your desktop software program of choice, save and then upload the file to app for safe keeping and access.

Review of Basic App Features

  • Upload & store files
  • Access files from anywhere
  • Share files
  • Edit documents online
  • File Transfer Protocol (FTP)
  • Email a Friend – share your files, send as an email to people without requiring them to have an account

Summary Review and Grade

  • Free Registration
  • No Downloads Required
  • No Installation Required
  • Works on All Web-browsers (some functionality limitations as noted below)
  • No Technical Experience Necessary
  • Works Cross-platform – on all computer platforms – (Linux, Macs, Windows)
  • Uploaded files are never deleted
  • Shared links good for 14 days – unlimited re-shares but link will change with each share (re-share)

Although the app currently supports all operating systems (OS) we noticed some limitations to their list of supported browsers (only FULL functionality with Internet Explorer (IE) and Firefox). We also had to ‘tweak’ some browser settings (enable cookies, adjust security setting while using, turn on JavaScript and for IE enabling ActiveX).  We would also like to see the app integrate an option for users to View a file without the need to download but for (50GB) of free storage, the ability to upload Very large folders and files and knowing that any information you upload will NOT deleted (even if no recent activity on the account has occurred) for Free is hard to beat!
