Otixo – Access All Online Files Across Different Services From A Single App

Advertisement

Cloud storage is taking the load off our local drives; not only does it allow us to backup and sync our files, but it also lets us worry less about viruses destroying data. Cloud storage being the great concept that it is, there are lots of different companies offering the service and no doubt you’re already using more than one. Otixo is a web service that syncs your files on different clouds and FTP servers and lets you access them from a single account. It currently syncs with Dropbox, Google Docs, Box.net, MobileMe and FTP servers. The service lets you move files between all supported services, upload new files, download files, delete and rename existing files and folders and create new folders.

Otixo is a single platform for accessing files across different servers, (you cannot open files in Otixo; they have to be opened on your system). Start by adding cloud services that you use to Otixo, services can be added after you sign up for an Otixo account or by clicking ‘New Service’. All services are listed in a panel on the left (just like viewing multiple drives in My Computer in Windows). To view files in another cloud, simply click it and and files will be synced. To move files between clouds, select a file, copy or cut it and paste it to another cloud. You can right-click a file and move it between clouds or folders using cut/copy options from the context menu.

You can add Otixo as a network drive to your system allowing you to access all files on your cloud drives from your desktop. Right-click on My Computer and select Map Network Drive, enter https://app.otixo.com/webdav in the folder address and click finish. You will be prompted to enter your Otixo login and password. Once the drive is added, you can view your files by selecting the Otixo drive from My Computer.

    Hmm, I guess if you don’t have any important data in the cloud then this might be a useful idea. According to the Otixo License agreements:

    “Otixo grants to Beta User use of the Services for a period of ninety (90) days after the Effective Date (the “Test Period”) for evaluation purposes only. Beta User must inform all Beta Users or other third parties that have access to or depend upon the Services that the Services are provided without warranty or support of any kind.”

    and…

    “OTIXO SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE TO BETA USER UNDER ANY CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHER THEORY FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF REVENUES, LOSS OF DATA, OR LOSS OF PROFITS. OTIXO’S TOTAL CUMULATIVE LIABILITY IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT AND THE SERVICES, WHETHER IN CONTRACT OR TORT OR OTHERWISE, WILL NOT EXCEED ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS ($100).” <– apparently they also aren't math majors 🙂

    I'll wait until the security aspects of this service are fleshed out a bit more.

    • PS

      TOS like these are par for the course in the cloud storage game – have you not read Dropbox’s  Dropbox is
      Available “AS-IS” and Limitation of
      Liability paragraphs in their TOS? I think you’ll be waiting a long time for said security aspects to be more fleshed out.
