Tthe local storage interface of RapidDrive syncs automatically with remote servers. According to the CEO of RapidShare, Alexandra Zwingli, “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. RapidDrive is an essential means of simplifying work processes, especially for customers who are regular users of RapidShare at work.”

The press release from the company states, “By integrating RapidDrive into the Microsoft operating system, RapidShare customers now have another intuitive and time-saving function that allows files to be uploaded directly from other programs (such as word processing programs) into the RapidShare account.”
