Hi!

 

Because of all the trouble with ACD I have been on the lookout for a cloud provider with an unlimited plan, at a reasonable price point. Lo and behold - I came across OpenDrive. An unlimited plan for 99 USD a year, with unlimited speed, bandwidth etc etc. It sounded too good to be true! I then came racing back to the Stablebit website to check if the provider was supported....but alas, no. It was too god to be true ;)

 

Is it possible for you guys to give any info on a timeframe for support? With all the sh*t ACD is giving you, OpenDrive seems like the best alternative, and a provider worth supporting :)

 

Thank you very much for a smooth approach to encryption in the cloud! With support for an unlimited cloud provider, I can ditch my current setup of NetDrive and Boxcryptor. Looking forward to it! :)

 

 

Once we have a new public release, then after t hat, we may add more providers.

 

however, we do have a request for OpenDrive already.... 

 

But ... they're having issues today apparently ("Error establishing database connection").... Ooops.

Just throwing my two cents in there, I think Backblaze should be a priority during/after ACD post-public release. If you look at prices... obviously Google Drive is the cheapest at a general $10-15 for "lifetime" unlimited storage off particular auction websites. ACD is not expensive at $60/yr for unlimited, and Backblaze I believe follows the same pricing scheme at $60/yr. Ideally you'd expect ACD to perform better due to their size and number of datacenters, so probably the smarter priority, but Backblaze should be up there... especially against other services.

To be blunt, we don't plan on adding any more providers until we have a new public beta or RC build.  Once that happens, we plan on going through the list of providers and evaluating them (eg, see which are viable, etc). 

 

As for adding BackBlaze, only their B2 service offers a usable API.  This is much more expensive than the other providers, but still cheaper than S3, Azure Storage or Google Cloud Storage. In fact, I've already done a breakdown of the costs here:

I am using ACD, Hubic, Google Drive,  Owncloud/Nextcloud and WebDav/FTP.

I think you are already supporting so much providers and in my opinion you should prior to keep this services up to date and working flawless instead of working on new providers.

By the way, i really love your software and after testing it with the trial account ill buy it for sure.

Which is the plan, really.

 

Adding additional providers isn't hard, as long as they have an actual API.  But each has their own quirks and behavior. 

 

We don't plan on adding any more providers until we have a stable version out. Once we do, then we will see about adding these other providers.

I was playing around with settings and noticed that I could enable beta providers.  I see that MediaFire is now included.  I tried to enter more than 1 account and it failed.  Is this intentional at this time, or shall I just wait for the next beta / submit this as a problem ticket?

 

Thanks again for such awesome software!

MediaFire is an experimental provider, and very experimental.  I would recommend not using it.

SMB/CIFS support is already present. It's the "Windows File Share" provider.

I'd like to know when you will start adding providers. I especialy want to see hubiC, as it offers good price for storage. 

 

Thanks for the information.

Once we have a stable release for all three products, we'll then see about adding additional providers. Until then, we're focusing on StableBit DrivePool and StableBit Scanner, as it's ... been a few years since either has had a stable Release version (waaay too long).

I did not see anyone mentioning SpiderOak yet.
Here is their API:

https://spideroak.com/apis/

They are very "privacy-oriented" which is something I did not care about that much, but they do from time to time offer unlimited storage plans for which I did care quite a bit :)
Hopefully, it is not a big deal to add them to the list of supported providers.

Well, the specific API stuff would be this: 

https://spideroak.co...web_storage_api

 

But, it looks like it's JSON based, so it should be easy enough to add, when we start doing so.

Sorry for my late reply:

It was specific to MediaFire.  I have multiple Google Drives, Multiple DropBox drives.  I have not tried this with the most recent version of the CloudDrive install.  This was a beta from back when I posted this question.  Has anything changed that I should try to test this out?

With regards to MediaFire, no.  We haven't changed anything really, and the issues with the provider were "server side" or at least in the way the API and server work...

To be blunt, no need.   If we add "S3 compatible providers", it will be a universal provider, and you'd just need to input the URLs for it.  

Since that means that we wouldn't need specific providers for each S3 type provider,.....

 

 

But if we do need to add a list, we'll make sure this gets added.
