Amazon S3 Client for Windows Released

Gladinet Cloud Desktop allows you to mount Amazon S3 storage as a local folder

Gladinet, a software vendor, has a solution called Gladinet Cloud Desktop that makes it easy to sync to Amazon S3 from Windows Explorer. In fact, Gladinet Cloud Desktop turns Windows Explorer into a cloud storage portal that can easily sync to Amazon S3 from other storage services or upload files from your desktop to any storage service you choose. Gladinet achieves this through a complete Amazon S3 integration with your file system.

What is Amazon S3 File System Integration?

Gladinet Cloud Desktop allows you to mount Amazon S3 storage as a local folder that looks and behaves the same as any other folder you would access from Windows Explorer.  One neat thing about this support is that you can mix and match storage services, so if you run out of storage from one free provider you can add storage from another free provider. Or, if you need to move files between providers, its as simple as a drag and drop. This is possible because Gladinet’s Amazon S3 webdav plugin is accompanied by plugins for every other major service provider, all in a single package!

To create the Amazon S3 integration, we must first mount Amazon S3 Storage as a local folder. Right click on the Gladinet systray icon and select "Mount Cloud Storage" to launch the wizard that allows us to mount cloud storage.

Next you must authenticate. You can get the Amazon S3 Security Credentials from http://aws.amazon.com

After the completion of this process, your Amazon S3 Storage can be accessed from a local folder as shown below and you can sync to Amazon S3 with a drag and drop, cut and paste or use any other native explorer method to sync files to Amazon S3. And now you have a complete Amazon S3 integration with your desktop.
