We are thrilled to announce the release of Mountain Duck 4 – the premier choice to mount server and cloud storage as a disk in Finder on macOS and the File Explorer on Windows.
Version 4 adds a file history with a detailed view of transfers in progress and history of recently edited files on your computer and on the server. Users can select an item to quickly reveal the changed file in the file explorer.
Assigning labels to bookmarks allows grouping bookmarks in folders in the menu further enhancing the unobtrusive user interface.
Locking files prevents conflicting edits from others while editing a document. Support has been introduced locking files when connecting to a WebDAV server. Additionally, locking for protocols with no native lock support using lock owner files has been implemented to allow alerts for concurrent edits in Microsoft Office.
Also when working with versioned buckets in S3, users can open and revert previous versions of files.
Mountain Duck 4, combined with any cloud storage, is a viable, more secure solution to synchronize access to documents on multiple computers and users. With Smart Synchronization, 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. 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.
