Cache in Air Live Drive

In Air Live Drive you can add the most important clouds and view them as local hard drives on your computer. You can add clouds accounts and FTP, SFTP and WebDav accounts.

Once you have added the cloud or ftp account, you just have to assign a letter to it and you can now connect it to be able to see it as another hard drive on your computer.

When you open one of your cloud accounts from Windows Explorer, some files has an X next to the file icon. This means that the file is not in cache, to use it you just have to open it normally. After opening the file, it will be saved in the cache.

Thumbnails will only be generated for files that are in cache. You can force to show thumbnails for all files in the “Disk Configuration”. This will slow down the disk browsing.

Cache options

If the file is in cache, it means that there is a temporary copy on you pc and the access to this file will be faster.

The cache size can be configured in the “Disk Configuration” of each disk. When the maximum size of the cache is reached, Air Live Drive will delete the least used files from the cache.

To delete all the files in the cache, you have to use the clear cache function of the “Disk configuration”.

    Hi There

    I’m trying out this nice piece of software but it seems that i can’t stream from my WebDAV connection.
    It connects good and i can see all the files, but when i try to open a (large) video file, it first starts to fill the cache instead of playing right away by streaming the file.
    Just takes way too long before the video file starts playing.
    Any help would be apreciated.

    Kind regards

    From the PC to the cloud is still bearable, but from the cloud to the cloud you have to reboot the PC

    This software gives me what i need, i even paid for the pro suscription just to support, since the free version gives me what i need (i just need to mount two clouds) but is freaking slow.

    – 15 seconds to open a folder?, not good.

    – 10 seconds in “Not responding” mode while opening a folder (reading probably?), not OK.

    – If i want to go back to the previous folder (back button/arrow) wait for 15-20 more. Too bad.

    I have enough hard drive space to cache a whole map of my Mega drive and i think that should be done once connected, including the folders and files inside folders to save time, just like pCloud or Google Drive Desktop Client. Not sure if every time if refreshed the drive needs to re-save a tree map and re-load…i don’t know. If i click on another drive and then i click back to the virtual drive takes me about 10-15 seconds to load again when it should be already mapped (if i can use that word, IDK) and then open. Now if everytime i click and calls for updated files that is another thing and i understand the whole lag but still, annoys me LOL.

    Overall, this software is great. Does what it supossed to.
