RapidShare unveils RapidDrive, A Dropbox competitor

RapidShare yesterday unveiled a new cloud sync and storage solution called RapidDrive.

The service confronts Dropbox and SugarSync, directly.

Like the leaders, RapidShare integrates directly with a computer’s file system interface and providing local storage that syncs automatically with remote servers.

This is what RapidShare CEO Alexandra Zwingli said about Rapid Drive,

“With RapidDrive, we are providing a tool that creates an even closer link between cloud storage and the PC environment, which makes it easier to manage files,”

adding further,

“RapidDrive is an essential means of simplifying work processes, especially for customers who are regular users of RapidShare at work.”

RapidPro customers have access to RapidDrive at additional cost, and the software currently supports Windows only. Versions for other operating systems are also planned. The final release is expected to come at the start of September, after completion of the testing phase. RapidDrive Beta is available for downloading at the following link:
