Commander One mounts Google Drive accounts as network drives on Mac

Google Drive provides global accessibility and automatic backup for workflow, including documents, presentations, and spreadsheets. The only downside is that you have to rely on WiFi to access and edit your work. Commander One makes it easy and safe to mount your Google Drive account as a local drive on your computer. Mapping your Google Drive on your local network location is just one of the powerful features of Commander One; it’s also a reliable FTP for Mac client.

When you mount your Google Drive locally with Commander One, you always have access to your essential files.

Commander One is a native Mac compatible Google Drive client

While cloud storage makes it easy to backup your files and access your work from anywhere, it can make you reliant on access to WiFi to create and edit new documents, spreadsheets, or presentations. It’s possible to use your Google Drive as a local network drive. Then, you can not only access, but create, edit, and download files right from your Finder window. Commander One is a native Mac compatible app that centralizes Google Drives with a macOS client.

Centralize multiple connections with a local client

If you use multiple accounts for work, school, social, and more, you can centralize your access by mounting them as local drives in your Finder window. Rather than waiting for slow WiFi or logging in and out of multiple accounts to access work or personal documents, navigate quickly between files right from the desktop.

Quickly move files between all your cloud accounts

Moving files between cloud accounts is tedious, rote work that compromises efficiency. Commander One makes file transfers easy. There’s no need to save files to your computer and then re-upload them to a new account. Just mount your Cloud accounts as network drives using Commander One. Then, quickly move files between cloud accounts right in Finder.

Get the same accessibility for shared files

When coworkers or friends share files and folders for collaboration, through GDrive or using a link, you can still access, edit, and save them on your computer in your Finder window. Commander One streamlines your workflow, regardless of how or where files are created and saved.
