Just deleted the wrong file? No problem

Every now and then we tend to make mistakes and we realise that the specific file or folder we wanted to view was deleted some time ago. That is no longer a problem. In CloudMe Web Access you can restore files and folders that have been deleted within the last 30 days. Just click on the trashcan in the upper bar.

Now the deleted files and folders appear on your screen. To restore just click on the specific file or folder and then select restore in the right menu.

And then you are done!

File sharing made even easier!

Sometimes you just want to share your files with friends. Other times you want to interact with your friends having them sending files back to you as well, adding content together with you. At some point you might  want to collaborate with others on a set of files. Now we have introduced an improved sharing service, giving you an easy way to decide how to share your files or folders.

1. Choose your folder to share

Just choose any file or folder in your account and then go down to the right corner and choose how you want to share it. If you just want to get a link to you webshare you can click on the green icon to the right.

 

2. Select your type of WebShare

After you have clicked on any of the share buttons a pop up window appears. Here you select if you want to let your friends just view your files or if you want them to interact with you. If you want your friends to be able to interact and upload their own files you will also be asked to choose a password. Now everything is set for you to share your file or folder!

 

Stream music everywhere with CloudMe’s expanded music service!

CloudMe is pleased to announce its updated streaming music service.

“Music storage has always been an integral part of our service’s offerings, but now we can even offer the possibility to build and save playlists directly from telephones as well as tablets and computers”, says Mathias Ericsson, CEO of CloudMe.

How do you currently listen to music?  Do you listen to music stored on your computer, iPod or the like? Or do you have a membership to a streaming music service like Spotify or Wimp?  Either way, you are locked into a device or a membership.  You must choose between listening to music you own or music you rent. Many have chosen memberships over their own extensively built-up music collection.  Unfortunately, once you cancel your membership with a streaming music service like Spotify, you have nothing left to show for the monthly fees you were charged. You don’t own any of the music you paid to listened to.

CloudMe’s newly updated music service offers the ability to stream your own music everywhere.  With CloudMe, music playlists can easily be built, saved and listened to from your phone, tablet or computer. Enjoy listening to playlists built from your entire music collection, both the music that you made as well as that which was paid. CloudMe supports several audio formats which may vary based on browser and device.

CloudMe supported audio formats - mp3, m4a, ogg, wav and m3u playlists

Be spontaneous. Be the life of the party. Make your playlists on the spot with the CloudMe iPhone/Android app or bring them with you. Either way, you’ll rock the holidays!

Wishing you all the best this holiday season!
The CloudMe Team

Automatically download Favorites as well as the latest additions

The Holiday season has begun and with it comes loads of WebShares consisting of photos and videos from loved ones.  Most of them you will end up favoriting by pressing “Add to Favorites” on the WebShare.  However, a few will be extra special and you’ll end up downloading a copy of those photos and videos to your computer.  But what is even better is that you can download the current files and automatically continue to download any additional files added to that Favorited WebShare in the future.  All you need to do is use CloudMe Sync. Just create a new Download Sync folder.

Using CloudMe Sync to create a Download Sync folder

  1. Download and install CloudMe Sync from cloudme.com
  2. Log in to CloudMe Sync and click on “Add a sync folder”
  3. Under the Local Folders tab, select a current local folder to download to or create a new folder
  4. Under the CloudMe folder tab, double-click on Favorites and select a Favorite folder to download and then click “OK”

Done! You’ve just created a download sync folder for the Favorited WebShare you wish to have a copy of on your computer.

To make sure that all the latest additions to that Favorited WebShare are downloaded to you regularly, make sure to go into Application Settings(the cogwheel icon) and set the Scheduler to daily or weekly.

So remember!  Once you’ve set up your Download sync folder, every time new photos, video, music, etc  are added to the WebShare you’ve Favorited, you’ll automatically have a copy on your computer.  What a great way to keep those memories forever and always have an up-to-date copy of the latest additions!

Complete access to CloudMe now available via WebDAV

Your entire CloudMe account is now accessible via WebDAV – a solution that allows you to mount CloudMe as a network drive on your computer. When connecting to CloudMe via WebDAV you’ll notice that in addition to the xios folder, the equivalent of Cloud Drive, that contains all your photos, music, videos and documents, there are now two additional read-only folders that give you access to your WebShares and Favorites.

For our Windows users, we recommend using the free solution from NetDrive, as seen in the image below. For our Mac and Linux users, your operating systems provide built in support.

Combine our recently added drag-n-drop feature with the xios WebDAV folder and now you have an extremely convenient way to effortlessly upload and download all your files and folders to and from your CloudMe account from your desktop. Remember, connecting to CloudMe is as easy as 1,2,3!
