Adrive – 50 GB of FREE Online Storage

Posted on February 3, 2009


Have you ever been in need of a simple, free, online storage website without anything to download and install? Then is for you. I have been using it’s service for about 2 months and I am very impressed with it. First of all (and probably the best of all) is that it provides 50 gigabytes of cloud storage for FREE! There are also several other setups for a range of different prices, the next one up from free is the signature plan, this offers 50GB as well but lets multiple users on at once instead of basic only allowing one at a time like the basic does. This is like an online server.

The adrive interface is really clean and simple, it’s easy and quick to upload files (of any size and type) using the Java applet on the site. The only problem with this is that Java isn’t supported by some configurations (such as my Linux computer), but thats been solved by allowing users to upload via a basic interface, similar to the basic picture uploader on facebook. It has an extremely simple uploader that allows you to upload 5 files at a time.

The downloads are also done on-site and the interface is great. Although it is also Java. Theres another way to download files. Just right-click on the file you want to download and a convenient dialog box pops up. Just click on “Download” in the dialog and it’s done! Also, the box that pops up houses other features besides downloading. It gives you the option to move it to a different directory on the adrive server, copy to another directory, share, view inline (which is basically opening the file without downloading anything), rename the file on the server, delete the file from the server, and edit with zoho. This basically allows you to edit text documents and stuff online on the fly. This is a good feature to have if you are traveling without a laptop or something and you are using someone else’s computer without the right software installed.

So that’s about all there is to cover on the wonderful site Make sure to check it out yourself if you are in need of a place to store files for free or if you are a business looking for secure cloud storage. Also, make sure to check out my tech help website at

Have a great day!
