Mobile and Desktop Clients

Sync and collaborate on your desktop or laptop

You can connect to your PracticalDrive cloud storage using the free NextCloud desktop clients for Windows, Mac and Linux. With these you can keep one or more folders full of your photos, videos and documents synchronized with your cloud storage. Any file you add, modify or delete in the synced folders on your desktop or laptop will show up, change or disappear on the server and all other connected devices. Thanks to the client software, you can work with your files even when you are not online!

The file manager integration means you can see what files are synchronized and you can easily share them directly with other users on your server or using a public link.

The desktop client will also notify you when something happens on PracticalDrive storage, for example if you receive a new share.
You can also see a history of what happened with your files in the Activity overview.

Your files with you wherever you are

NextCloud clients for Android and iOS allow you to sync and share your files, in a fully secure way through an encrypted connection. The mobile clients feature automatic upload of pictures and videos you take and can make select files and folders available offline.

You can rename, delete and move files, view images and documents. The clients handle multiple accounts and show activity happening on your server, notifying you of new events such as the availability of new shares or a audio/video call.
