One of the greatest strengths of cloud storage services like Dropbox and Google Drive – the fact that they mirror your cloud data on your Mac – is also a big weakness.
Mirroring data and syncing it across devices makes it quick and easy to access, but also takes up valuable storage space on your Mac. CloudMounter offers to make those drives available without needing to mirror their data on your Mac, thus not taking up any extra space. It can also encrypt any cloud drive or any folder on a drive.
Once you’ve logged in to each cloud service, the app mounts the drive in the Finder and from there on, it’s just like using a local volume, albeit a little bit slower.
The app supports Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive and Amazon S3, as well as FTP and WebDAV servers. We found it worked seamlessly, with the only slight difference between using, say, Dropbox in CloudMounter and Dropbox’s own app being a slight delay in accessing data when using the former setup.
THE BOTTOM LINE. If you don’t mind a waiting a few seconds to access your files, CloudMounter is an excellent way to save space on your Mac.
