Would you like a RapidDrive?


RapidShare, the popular file hosting website, has launched its own cloud disc space service called RapidDrive. It joins competing titans like SkyDrive, Google Drive and of course, DropBox.

One of the unique thing it does is act as a regular hard drive in Windows explorer, where you can move files around just like you would on a regular drive.

“RapidShare account will be displayed in your Windows explorer window as if it was an additional hard drive. After the program has started and the hard drive has been integrated, you can upload and download files easily by moving them in Windows explorer. Another advantage of RapidDrive is that you can save new files directly from other programs (such as word processing programs) in your RapidShare account,” according to the official announcement.

The service is currently in beta and accessible only to RapidPro account holders. RapidPro users will be able to integrate their account with RapidDrive and also use the RapidShare Manager to manage the cloud service.

As of yet, RapidDrive is Windows-only, but support for other operating systems is planned. RapidDrive will officially launch in September.
