Gladinet Cloud Desktop Review – Mount any web storage

Gladinet Logo Gladinet is a Cloud Desktop application that helps to mount Google Docs, Picasa Web Albums, Windows Live SkyDrive, Adrive, Amazon S3 Storage or any WebDAV server as Local Drive in the computer from where you can open, add, remove, or edit.

You’ll just need the username, password for the service and can mount as local drive to  open files directly. You can access all of those online storage sites just like folders in Windows and you’d get free web drive. Gladinet Mount types

Gladinet Cloud Desktop also also lets use web applications locally like Picknik, a free online photo editor, to open up local pictures or Google Picasa pictures on your local copy of Adobe Photoshop. Sharing Files and Folders is as easy as sending an e-mail or an instant message.

It supports 32-bit and 64-bit Windows. GCD provides two Editions in one package, the Starter Edition and Professional Edition. The package provides a 30-day trial for Pro Edition. After the trial, it switches from Pro Edition back to Starter Edition. If users like features in Pro Edition, they can purchase the Professional Edition key to upgrade. The Starter Edition can mount web storages as local folders.  Watch the below 10min introduction about Gladinet for better understanding.

  1. This doesn’t seem as much a REVIEW of the product as a basic description. The video even sounds like it was created by the software developer instead of an independent reviewer.

    What’s the deal?

  2. Hello,

    I have been using Gladinet for approximately 3 years. I
    started with the basic free edition and moved on to the Pro, fully paid
    edition.

    It is used primarily for documents and the odd large business
    presentation. No pictures, movies, or anything more than 5mb.

    Whilst it works fine for smaller files (less than 1mb), the
    software is severely restricted for files over 1mb. It downloads them two or
    three times before it manages to open them, it is abysmally slow ( one or two
    minutes to opening), and sometimes it simply does not open them at all.
    Numerous email exchanges with the support team later, having gone through
    debates on internet speed, firewall connections, settings, etc, etc, and having
    found out they were all ok, the concluding remark is “uninstall and reinstall”!!!
    Even so, problems persist. The software is basically good but is not designed
    to handle large files.

    In summary, if you have small files and want quick access
    via a “drive”, it works. But do not expect to manage a large file portfolio via
    gladinet. You will simply end up back using the web portal like you always did
    before gladinet…
