  • At the very least, why not try your example Android programs on Windows though an emulator or virtual machine? At least until a suitable, native replacement appears.

    Are you saying there is no windows alternative? I want a windows program, so i don't have to deal with emulators. I have a 22 inch screen and want to utilize it.

  • Supports Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, and Box
  • Runs on Window 8.1
  • Can connect to FTP servers
  • Integration into Windows Explorer
  • Can pay via PayPal*

It can also be used to access your Android phone's contents.


  • *non-free; 30-day trial, after 30 days you can only use one drive (ie. a single drive, and not OneDrive.)
  • not password protected
  • Just to clarify... You mean one drive as in "a single drive"... Not " OneDrive"... Right?

  • Windows (or Mac)
  • Dropbox
  • Google Drive
  • S/FTP
  • OneDrive
  • Box.net
  • Many more cloud servers
  • Accepts PayPal
  • $50
  • 7-day trial

FYI: I found this via http://alternativeto.net/software/netdrive/ I did not explore the two Android apps so there could be other options out there.

  • After the trial, what features do you have?

  • Also, I checked the link you added, and no avail. Everything is either paid software or FTP only.

  • Based on the requirements you posted, it seems that if you are willing to spend $50 then it is a good program. But most of us are used to free or $25 software, right? Commented Jan 8, 2015 at 1:04
  • ... What does it include after the trial ends? Do you still have features?
