Access Files Stored Online via Windows Explorer

Gladinet is a free Windows application that runs on your desktop and offers easy access to files stored online or across remote PCs. The company’s goal is to provide a single platform from where you can manage files regardless of where they are stored.

While the company says it is like “building bridges among digital islands,” we say it is an easy way to use Windows Explorer to drag and drop documents from the Web to your machine.

To manage your digital content, Gladinet makes all of your files accessible from a virtual drive mapped into your Windows Operating Environment, letting you update and modify files stored on a variety of services such as Google Docs, Amazon S3 and Windows Live Skydrive.

Once updated, Gladinet uploads the new version back to its original home.

In addition to giving you easy access to files scattered across multiple machines and in the cloud, Gladinet’s two other main features are remote access and on demand sharing of files with friends.
