Disk-O launches globally to let users manage cloud storage from one location
Mail.ru Group, the developer of Maps.me, announced the global availability of Disk-O, a new Windows and macOS application designed for the safe and easy management of data from an unlimited number of personal cloud storage solutions. With Disk-O, users can access files from providers like Box, Dropbox, Google Drive and more directly from their desktop. Files appear as if connected by a virtual hard drive, empowering users to open, browse, transfer, edit, search and delete files from their cloud storage accounts with no downloads necessary.

On average, active cloud users leverage at least two to three cloud storage services. Over time, users collect an enormous amount of data across various services - particularly if they have extensive multimedia collections like designers, photographers, or videographers do. Accessing files stored in different services is a time-consuming process, as users have to visit each site individually or use their desktop applications. Furthermore, desktop applications necessitate the use of limited local storage resources.

Built from the ground up to provide a smooth and intuitive user experience, Disk-O allows users to access data stored in the cloud directly from default file management systems like File Explorer and Finder. Installed on more than one million devices to date, Disk-O is fully secured using SSL-encryption and OAuth-authentication. Users can create a custom PIN to manage and control access to all connected cloud storage accounts. With Disk-O, all data is stored in the cloud, so users can access their files without using any of the limited storage on their devices.

"The beauty of Disk-O is that it empowers users to gain greater flexibility and control over their cloud storage services," said Egor Ganin, Deputy Vice President & Head of Cloud and Business Services at Mail.Ru Group. "Users can perform resource-intensive tasks like watching video files or working with large Photoshop documents with no latency as Disk-O ‘remembers' recently opened files, accelerating their processing time."

While many cloud services offer users a free tier of storage, these typically provide a minimal amount of space, with additional storage necessitating expensive monthly payments. By contrast, Disk-O offers users a simple way to manage all their cloud services from one location and over 20 GB of combined storage offered by free plans of above services.

Disk-O is immediately available for a monthly fee of 2.29 USD per month. The application can be connected to an unlimited number of accounts from the following cloud storage services: Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive and WebDAV. Support for Amazon S3 and FTP is coming soon. The application is available globally on macOS and Windows devices.
