Cyberduck Mountain Duck CLI

Feature & Performance Comparison

Mountain Duck appears to be reliable and the Finder integration turns Finder into a fully-functional SFTP client - this is no easy feature and I’ve not yet found anything that actually works, all the time - Expandrive, Transmit, oDrive, SSHFS, Cloud Mounter, etc. all fall on their face fairly early on. I spend a lot of time on remote hosts editing files and this really helps; thanks!

Comparison with client applications from OneDrive, Dropbox and Google Drive. Instead use Mountain Duck to access your personal file storage with smart synchronization to only keep selected files on your computer permanently.

2 You can keep files online but OneDrive downloads the files on demand and you musts free disk space again manually.

Comparison with third party solutions to mount remote storage on your desktop. Mountain Duck 3, combined with any cloud storage, is a viable, more secure solution to synchronize access to documents on multiple computers and users.
