OfficeDrop upgrades Windows apps to simplify sharing, syncing files

Users can now create an URL from any synced file, which can be sharable with anyone, anywhere with internet access

By CBR Staff Writer

Searchable online cloud storage OfficeDrop has upgraded its Windows apps and online cloud storage platform to simplify syncing files and searching the cloud.

Users can now sync any folder with a simple click, as well as use OfficeDrop’s search engine to find files by filename, words contained in the file and upload date, among other data.

This includes scanning to synced folders from mobile devices, which places documents on a Windows PC.

OfficeDrop’s interface lets users search documents better, using thumbnail or thumbnail plus text result views that highlight the search term in the file, depending on their preference.

Users can now create an URL from any synced file, which can be shared with anyone, anywhere with internet access. This phenomenon is called Sync2Link File Sharing.

All that user have to do is simply right-click a synced file, choose "share as a link," and use the URL to spread that file and spread on Twitter, Facebook, through email. For security, users can revoke access, or remove links based on requirement.

OfficeDrop said it has also increased the size of its free cloud storage plans to 5 GB for new free users who sign up before the end of June.
