Store, Backup and Sync Across Multiple Users and Computers!

OpenDrive for Mac links you directly to the cloud by creating a virtual drive accessible as a device through the Finder. Unleash the power of the OpenDrive Cloud directly from your Mac. OpenDrive will allow you to open, modify and save files just like a traditional drive. Keep your most important files backed up to OpenDrive for access anywhere, at anytime, and from any Internet connection. Share your memories with family and friends or stay in sync with clients and colleagues. OpenDrive for Mac integrates seamlessly and gives you instant access to the cloud for sharing, backup and online storage.

For premium users, OpenDrive creates a zero knowledge encryption folder called “Secure Files”, where uploaded files are encrypted with strong AES-256 encryption on-the-fly. The encryption key never leaves your computer and files are encrypted before they are sent to OpenDrive servers.
