With the Drive-Client you can easily access your luckycloud data without using the storage space of your PC or laptop. The Drive Client is a virtual network drive which, after successful setup on your PC or laptop, is displayed in the Explorer, e.g. as an S-drive. All data stored in the luckycloud will be mirrored in your file system/finder. A stable and fast Internet connection is required to access and process your data.
Note: The virtual hard disk is only a mirror of your data. Access is only possible with an existing Internet connection. Thus no backup of your data is created. Unlike the Sync Client, your data is stored exclusively in the luckycloud. When it comes to data security, it is strongly recommended to set up a backup of your data on at least one other data carrier (e.g. NAS).
First download the appropriate Drive Client software for your operating system (Windows, MacOS) or the explanation file (Linux). You can find these in the customer dashboard under "Download Manager" or on our website in Support. Install the Drive Client accordingly and start the program.
