Amazon Drive is a desktop client designed to help you access the Amazon online storage service and upload your files to the cloud. The web storage application from Amazon can also be accessed from mobile devices and web browsers.

The desktop version provides a straightforward way for quickly sending pictures, videos, documents and other files to the cloud. The installation process may take some time. In our case, the utility needed seven minutes to complete its deployment.

In order to share files across all your devices you need to follow the steps embedded in a wizard-like approach. You need to sign in to your Amazon account by providing details about the authentication parameters (email address and password). In case you do not have an account, you can create a new one via your default web browser.

You can find the utility residing quietly in your system tray without interfering with your work. The program also offers support for context menu integration so you can easily send the selected files to your cloud service.

Amazon Drive gives you the possibility to make use of the drag-and-drop support in order to quickly upload files. You may simply put the files and directories over the Drive tray icon in order to load files to your Amazon account, as well as download files and folders from the cloud and save them on the disk.

The downloading and uploading process takes place in the background, so you may continue working on your projects without being disturbed. The system tray icon shows the upload speed, remaining time and overall progress of the task.

All in all, Amazon Drive provides a simple software solution for helping you share files across all your devices and easily store them in the cloud, and can be handled by all types of users, regardless of their experience level.
