Can odrive be used to replace Amazon Drive's client?


Sorry if this has been covered, but I don’t see the topic. I’m trying to understand a) can I use odrive in place of the new Amazon Drive sync client (as far as I can tell, the Amazon Drive client insists on being installed and on having a local folder defined for syncing( and b) what have other users found to be the pros and cons of using odrive vs. the new Amazon sync client for working with Amazon Drive? Thanks for your thoughts and feedback!

Hi @gordon.rose,
odrive is meant to be a total (and better :wink: ) replacement for all other sync clients, including Amazon Drive’s new client. Many folks have installed odrive and then uninstalled the Amazon client (and/or Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive, etc…)

I haven’t used Amazon’s client too much, but I think it may be helpful for you to take a look at this post goes over some of the things odrive can do for you. Pretty much all of the listed points are not available in Amazon’s own client:

There are also a couple of blog posts that you may find interesting:
