CloudMounter is a centralized service that allows mounting cloud storages as local disks and work with online files the same way as with local ones. As well as keep all your data securely protected.
The version 2.0 extended CloudMounter capabilities to the whole new level! Now you are able not only to access all your files directly on the online server through Mac Finder, but also to encrypt them with the high-end encryption algorithm (AES256). So, in case if your account is stolen, no one gets access to your personal information.
Supported cloud services:
- Google Drive
- Microsoft OneDrive
- Amazon S3
- OpenStack Swift
With this handy system utility you can extend your Mac disk space to unlimited, the only condition is an active Internet connection. Ready to find out how it works? It is really easy!
Unlike native clients, CloudMounter does not sync local information with your online accounts, it really mounts remote servers on your Mac, like removable disks. You can copy, move, open, download and upload files to your cloud servers, just as you would be doing it with your local folders. CloudMounter has a rather handy Finder extension. Activate it to see loading statuses of your files. You can even move files between cloud accounts, without having to manually copy them to your local computer. Keep in mind that a temporary copy of the file is still saved to a computer only to be removed after the transfer is completed.
CloudMounter is a safe and secure utility. It allows to encrypt your personal data on the cloud servers, so that only CloudMounter user with a master password can see it. Viewing the storage from any other point of access (i.e. browser or native client) will show nothing but nonsense.
Besides encryption of your online data, all connections are performed through the native API of cloud services, which means that all your login credentials are not used by the app for anything else except for logging in appropriate accounts and of course are not shared with any third parties. All passwords for FTP, WebDAV and Amazon S3 accounts are securely kept in macOS Keychain.
CloudMounter is your must-have tool if you use several cloud accounts or if your Mac SSD drive has an extremely low capacity. Try it now and enjoy the benefits of an all-in-one cloud solution.

So Far, So Good! Great App! - I was attempting to find (read: figure out) a solution for my ever increasing DropBox storage amount; and the fact that if I wanted quick access to my files, also filling up my 250GB SSD Drive on my Macbook Pro, at the same time. I tried using my 1TB external hard drive to hold the syncing folder of my DropBox. It worked ok, but at the same time I figured, all I am doing is some of the same; filling up another hard drive with files I am purposely wanting online in the cloud. Not to mention the hassles when I either purposely, or accidentally unplugged my drive from the usb port. It would inevitably throw up the Dropbox warnings, and add a couple steps to ensure it would still sync when I plugged it back in. Therefore, I moved the syncing folder back to my SSD drive, and used the options to just reveal and store the files and folders that I felt were most necessary to have ‘close by’. This is not ideal, obviously, as then DropBox is not being used as one would like it to be. You are forced, then, to go back to preferences and add a folder if you want to get, add, or move files around. Then go back into preferences to remove the files from your SSD drive. I basically have used that strategy up until today. I wasn’t even thinking of Dropbox when I opened the app store to see if I had any updates. Well, right on the opening splash page (Featured) of the app store was this app. I dropped what I was doing and bought it right away after reading the description. Fired it up, and it does exactly what I want! I deleted the native dropbox app, and deleted the contents of my old dropbox folder. Caveats: The only VERY tiny caveat is the VERY slight delay as it does what it does, as it has to download the file structure and any file you use, move, add, etc. It is a VERY minor delay and not much longer than you would face on a usb drive. I’m sure it would be a bit longer with larger files, but still extremely worth not having to keep that same large file on your SSD. My first review of an app, so I apologize for going over the 200 word average that Apple recommends. Hopes this helps someone who was in the same situation. Marky D
Does not work, period! - I spent an hour after multiple attempts to connect to an S3 bucket with correct credentials. I finally figured the app was not working. I downloaded a FREE Hub3 app that does the same thing and presto — same credentials worked and connected. I only spent 0.99 cents but it was a ripoff. There is no way I would buy the higher priced one… oich.
