One of the problems I see with cloud storage, including Apple’s new iCloud Drive, is that most of them require you to sync a specific folder on your Mac to their service. There’s the iCloud Drive folder, the Google Drive folder, the Microsoft OneDrive folder, the Box folder, and so on. There’s a better way and it’s free.
Zibity Dibity Do
A somewhat obscure Mac app developer known as Zibity has a number of free Mac utilities which do that which Apple, Google, Microsoft, Dropbox, et al, do not.
The free Mac utility MacDropAny links a folder on your Mac to a bunch of the popular cloud storage services.
These include Dropbox, iCloud Drive, Copy, Box, Google Drive, OneDrive, Mega, and MediaFire.
All these cloud storage services want you to sync your files by placing them into a special sync folder on your Mac.
MacDropAny lets you choose which folder on your Mac syncs to which cloud storage service.
First, select the folder you want to sync.
Then, select which cloud storage service (you’ll need an account, of course) you want to connect to your folder.
Then, well, that’s about it.
MacDropAny uses a symbolic link in OS X that connects your Mac to the cloud service. That gives you much more flexibility about which folders connect and sync to which cloud storage service.
Sweet, simple, and free.
