The Windows Tools beta expired today. If you use it you will be able to access all your files and share them but will be unable to upload. We intend to issue the final release on Monday 2nd March with some brand new features which include a files filter , virtual drive, and enhances search. We will give a full review on the new version in Monday’s blog postby
We did some updates on the Mobile SMEStorage web client so that it now uses our API (it was designed pre our API) and so now supports all the cloud providers that SMEStorage supports, namely Amazon S3, Mosso CloudFiles, Box.net, GMail Cloud, Email-as-a-Cloud, and of course combination of these such as Box.Net+Gmail or Amazon S3+GMail.
We have just made live our integration with Evernote and also released our revised cloud import/export function.
Evernote is a software application that allows users to capture information of various types, including text notes, mobile phone snapshots, printed and handwritten text within images, web clips, and digital ink. SMEStorage can now import information you have stored in Evernote directly to SMEStorage. From here you can view it via the web browser, backup to other storage clouds, share with users or just keep it for reference.
You can now use SMEStorage to import/export data to all the storage clouds we support, which are currently Amazon S3, Mosso Cloud Files, Gmail, Email-as-a-Cloud, and Box.net.
As well as supporting Amazon S3, GMail, email-to-cloud, Box.net, XDrive, we now support Mosso Cloud Files also !
Once you register you will need to enter your username and access key. You can choose to store these (they are encrypted) or you can enter them each time you use the service.
You can then use the smestorage platform to upload / download files and also use our access channels and tools to access your files.
If you are using SMEStorage with your own Amazon S3 keys from our OpenS3 beta programme, you can now create new buckets that are located in Europe as we now support the Amazon European bucket functionality.
To do this do as follows:
Step one: Go to MyAccount – > MyProviders
Step two: Choose to syncrhonize your S3 Account
Step three: Add the checkbox for ‘European Bucket’
Remember: You will need to add this bucket to you account (using “manage additional buckets” link) to be able to use it. Also if you want this as the default bucket you will also need to change it using the “default bucket” link.
This is useful if you reside in Europe as the latency should be less for uploads and download, and also if you have documents or files that should not cross country borders.
We have enabled free access to your Box.net cloud files combined with 250 MB free Amazon S3 Cloud Storage. This is presented seamlessly through our virtual file system. We’ll present a more detailed post on this in due course.by
We have just made live our new “email to cloud” storage package. This package allows you to use any POP3 or IMAP enabled email system as a storage cloud, whether this is an internal email system or public email system.
This is beta and will be free, and remain free, for any beta participants. We’ll follow this with a more detailed post of how to use this, although it is fairly straight forward to set this up.
