What are people saying about Skyfiles

Michael K Would appreciate knowing what the advantage of this program is over KumoSync which is free.


May 12 2012 at 12:06am Copy Link
Jerry Wang KumoSync is a sync tool for Google Docs, while GDocsDrive is a client app which allow you manipulate Google Docs online file from the desktop.

Steven User What is the advantage over the recently released Google Drive?
May 13 2012 at 4:43am Copy Link
Jerry Wang GDocsDrive is different from Google Drive.
Google Drive is a sync tool to automatically sync between your local files and Google cloud storage.

GDocsDrive is not designed to be a sync tool, and it is more like a desktop version for Google Docs, through which you can manage your Google Docs online files from the desktop.

May 13 2012 at 10:29am Copy Link
E. Douglas Jensen I am confused. It is my understanding that Google Docs do not have MS Office format, so I don't understand how Google Docs can be edited by GDocsDrive -- does it convert Google Docs files to Office files to be locally edited, then upload them back to Google Docs which automatically accepts Office formatted documents?
May 13 2012 at 11:53am Copy Link
Colin McAllister Despite not getting any answer to my question, I downloaded the trial. Here are my thoughts, for what they're worth...

1. The interface is clean, understandable and the program integrates well with Windows Explorer.

2. I liked the incredibly fast search and this is the fastest "Doc to PDF" and "Doc to Html" I've ever seen. Excellent.

3. There were a few formatting issues with converting presentations to PDF, but that was because the formatting in the Google Docs "original" was not perfect.

4. Converting to Zip format quickly produces a ZIP file, but the document inside is in html format.

5. You can choose to open the file using Word on your local machine, but you can just open it online using Google Docs.

6. You can export to text, rich-text, Word and/or Open Document formats, as well as exporting as JPEG and/or PNGs.

7 When you consider there is no ongoing annual fee for this software, my overall impression is that what it does it does well and it's well worth $10.
May 13 2012 at 3:10pm Copy Link
Winston Hamer @Jerry Wang I'm still confused.... I can manage my Google Docs online files from the desktop using Google Drive via Window's Explorer. I viewed your video. It seems that nearly all the features are available with Google Drive. If you want to differentiate your product allow us the ability to link individual files from wherever they reside, into Google Drive using hardlinks and junction features.

Nico Westerdale Colin, Sorry about the additional tax for UK residents, that's sometimes the case, although usually other countries pay the same, and I have seen it as less, it depends how it's configured.

We'd love to give out that type of information, the problem is collecting and presenting it. It's actually quite a task to get it correct. What's more some shopping carts key the tax info off of IP address, or only show it after entering a valid address in the other country. It's even a problem within the US as sales tax is sometimes, but not always charged based on where the e-commerce's company is incorporated in.

So unfortunately it's something that would require significant work on our end to get right. We'll keep it in the back of our mind though. For now we do our prices in USD.
BitsDuJour Admin - May 13 2012 at 4:13pm Copy Link
Jerry Wang Thanks for all. Currently most questions are about the difference between Google Drive and GDocsDrive, so I'd like to explain it in details here.

Google Drive: is a sync tool like Dropbox. It will sync the files between your desktop and Google Docs. So, when you have a file in Google Docs, you get a duplicated copy in your computer.

GDocsDrive: is a client app for Google Docs. When using GDocsDrive, you get an interface very similar to Google Docs. All files showed in GDocsDrive are actually stored in Google Docs and do not have local copies. Each operation you made through GDocsDrive actually result in a HTTPS communication between GDocsDrive and Google Docs API service. Technically, you manipulate your Google Docs files directly using GDocsDrive.

GDocsDrive has several enhanced features that Google Docs does not have, like: modifying Google Docs file with Microsoft Office. Integration with Windows Explorer, etc.
GDocsDrive - May 13 2012 at 6:39pm Copy Link
Jerry Wang to E. Douglas Jensen: Thanks for your question. There are two type of files in Google Docs. One type is Google Docs native format . Another is original file format without converted to Google Docs format.

To edit a Google Docs native format file with MS Office, you are right!, The file will be downloaded and converted to MS format and then be uploaded back to Google Docs format after modification.

To edit a non-Google Docs format file, it is easy - just download it to the local file system and choose a right app to open it.

VLM Jerry Wang - As I think about this product, here are my thoughts:

1. Because I value my privacy and safety, I almost religiously avoid all things Google.

2. That said, once in a while, I find a publication that seems ONLY to be available via GoogleDocs.

3. Might it then be fair to say that I could use your application to capture the document, save a local copy, shut off the connection to Google, then pursue the document entirely locally ... and at least somewhat safely?

I realize this is not the way you typically present your product ... but perhaps it could be an additional marketing point ... if I am correct.

May 13 2012 at 6:55pm Copy Link
Jerry Wang Hi VLM, Sorry, GDocsDrive will not work this way, because it heavily relies on Google Docs API service. We will consider your requirement and may add more offline features in the next version.
GDocsDrive - May 13 2012 at 8:08pm Copy Link
VLM Thank you Jerry. I cannot say whether the use I suggest would be of widespread interest. I can say that I felt a bit confused by what you said about using MS Office to work with documents. To me, that meant saving the document on a local drive, opening it in Word (or whatever), then working in it as in any document. But obviously, I do not adequately understand the product yet, so I'll need to read more.

Best wishes!

Steven Avery Hi,

Your blurb talks about using a "drag and drop". I like to see stuff in Total Commander, or some other file manager, as a mapped drive. I am under the impression you could do this with some cloud services now. Why would I want to have less than that and go for d&d instead ? Or do you integrate with a mapped drive approach and then give better conversions and stuff ?


May 13 2012 at 11:53pm Copy Link
Brenda Gann I don't understand. You state "the same cloud-based functionality that lets you access your documents from anywhere also can be one of the greatest limitations if you can't get to the Internet. "

followed by "All files showed in GDocsDrive are actually stored in Google Docs and do not have local copies. Each operation you made through GDocsDrive actually result in a HTTPS communication between GDocsDrive and Google Docs API service. Technically, you manipulate your Google Docs files directly using GDocsDrive. "

If we aren't connected to the Internet, then how can we edit without local copies or communicate to Google Docs API?

Petr Hi, I have the following pre-sales questions:
#1. I have multiple Google accounts. Can I use one installed GDocsDrive on my computer to access files in these separate accounts? If 'yes' please explain how (e.g. logout, then login to another account)?

#2. Is this program compatible with Windows Server 2000? Windows XP? Windows Server 2012?

#3. Does the program assign a drive letter (e.g. G: ) or a folder on a drive such that I can specify a path in my backup program to "copy" files to? For example, I would like to have my accounting software to automatically store backup files to G:\ACCOUNTING\

Constantin Florea @Petr, I see the promotion was scheduled to run only on 19th of May 2016. Once the promotion has ended, we can no longer provide the product at the same discounted price as the one we offered during the promotion. However I have just contacted the vendor regarding your comment.
BitsDuJour Admin - May 20 2016 at 11:44am Copy Link
John User I missed the promo price. Will it be offered again?
May 21 2016 at 12:51am Copy Link
Jerry Wang @Petr,
#1. Yes, you can access files in different accounts using one GDocsDrive instance. To switch account, you have to logout the current account then login to another. This process is very similar to Google Drive Web interface.

#2.GDocsDrive is compatible with Windows XP and Windows Server 2012, but not workable on Windows Server 2000 due to the limitation of .Net framework.

#3.No, you cannot. GDocsDrive was not designed this way. For automatic data backup, a sync tool, such as Google Drive client or Dropbox, is more suitable for you.

DiggerP I got this earlier and found it to be a fantastic application.
It uses a fraction of the memory used by eg Google Chrome
and opening Google Drive.
I often use it to play music files from a music backup.
They will play in a second as if they were local files and I don't have
a fast internet connection.
The reason is that the system isn't burdened by a memory hogging browser.
Same for other files.
The Testimonials reflect my sentiments about this app

Thanks BDJ for featuring this again and thanks to Jerry Wang, the author of Skyfiles

Vipin User Hello, I still am not convinced with the usage of this software. Google has two pieces of software currently that works with Google Drive:
a.) Google Backup and Sync - This one is used mainly for syncing your computer and your google drive, and vice versa. Basically acts like a backup drive at google.
b.) Drive for desktop: This one is the cloud version of the Google Drive. You don't download anything permanently to your hard drive. You just edit the documents (whatever format it is - PDF, XLSX, DOCX, JPG etc.) in your native machine programs. For example, you could edit the DOCX file in Microsoft Office Program installed in your machine, and it saves it back to the Google drive immediately.
Both of these can be found here:

Now, my question is: How is Skyfiles different from 'Drive for Desktop'? I did tried a trial version of your software, and it's lot more limited than Drive for Desktop. There is no integration to the local System (meaning there's no extra drive in your My PC in windows), No folder or file context menus to send a file or folder to Google drive etc. All I get is another program to worry about, and still not able to do the main things which I am so used to.

So, if the developer can let me know the use case of their software, it will be nice. They have to really try hard to convince me for getting their software, instead of Drive for Desktop.

RichU So, if I want to share specific files or folders from my Google Drive cloud, can I do so with Skyfiles without using my own computer resources? Other than setup, of course.
So, I would simply send a link to another person (who does not have a Skyfiles account) and they can open the file or folder? And since they are accessing the files and folders from the cloud, the process is not using any of my computer resources to host the files? I assume that I can send the files either as read-only or as editable?

(Or at least store all settings within application directory?).
