On November 8th, 2019, 2019 Amazon Cloud Drive support discontinues and Air Explorer won’t access to Amazon Cloud Drive anymore.
Amazon is discontinuing its Cloud Drive API for 3rd party applications such as Air Explorer. Therefore Amazon Cloud Drive users will have to use the original Amazon apps to access Amazon Cloud Drive.
If you prefer to continue using Air Explorer to manage your files, you can move your data from Amazon Cloud to another cloud provider that Air Explorer supports. You can easily move your data to another cloud using Air Explorer before November 8th.
The full message from Amazon is here:”On November 8, 2019, AirExplorer’s integration to the Amazon Drive API will be discontinued. Customers of Amazon storage will continue to have access to their content through our first party applications for Amazon Photos and Amazon Drive. Please make arrangements to discontinue all traffic to the Amazon API before November 8, 2019.”
You can contact Amazon support to get more information.
List of changes:
Air Explorer shows your cloud files from different clouds in its own interface. This interface is optimized for accessing cloud servers (it has tabs, and a split screen to transfer files).
Air Live Drive mounts your clouds as disk drives in your computer. It allows you to use your usual tools or programs directly on the files in the cloud.
Air Explorer has other features, it allows to encrypt files, schedule automatic file transfers, synchronize folders, view and restore old file versions, etc. It has better upload and download performance since it control the full process instead of using the Windows File explorer as Air Live Driv
So if you prefer to have your clouds as disk drives in your computer and use them as you are used to do with the local drives go for Air Live Drive, if you want to manage the files in your clouds with better performance, synchronization and more features go for Air Explorer.
Many of our customers use both.
Air Explorer supports the best cloud servers: OneDrive, OneDrive for Business, Google Drive, Amazon Cloud Drive, 4shared, Box, Dropbox, Mega, Mediafire, Yandex, Baidu, Naver, Hidrive, pCloud, Mail.ru, Mail.com, Adrive, Magenta Cloud, Stack Storage and Datto Drive.
Moreover, Air Explorer works with FTP, FTPS and SFTP accounts. They are commly used to acces servers in Internet like web servers or WordPress installations.
You can add these accounts like a cloud. Open the add account panel and select the FTP or SFTP logo and fill the server, user, password,etc.
