We are thrilled to announce the release of Mountain Duck 3 – the premier choice to mount server and cloud storage as a disk in Finder on macOS and the File Explorer on Windows.
Version 3 adds a smart synchronization feature to add offline support. Files are synchronized to the local disk when opened to allow offline usage and changes are uploaded in the background as soon as a connection is available. Dropbox like experience with your preferred on-premise enterprise storage or cloud storage. With the additional option to choose which files and folders are available for offline use. Other files are visible but only stored as placeholders. These do not take up disk space on the computer and are downloaded on demand only.
Badge icons in the Finder and Windows Explorer indicate the sync status of files – easily assess if the file is only available when online or is synced to your computer for offline editing. Synchronization with the remote storage is paused and resumed automatically depending on your network connection. The application icon in the system tray animates when a background transfer is currently in progress.
Mountain Duck 3, combined with any cloud storage, is a viable, more secure solution to synchronize access to documents on multiple computers and users. Encryption for data at rest using Cryptomator interoperable vaults prevent unauthorized access regardless of the server or cloud storage infrastructure. Based on the solid open source foundation of Cyberduck, all major protocols are supported to connect to just about any server you want.
