Version 3 adds a smart synchronization feature to add offline support. Files are synchronized to the local disk when opened to allow offline usage and changes are uploaded in the background as soon as a connection is available. Dropbox like experience with your preferred on-premise enterprise storage or cloud storage. With the additional option to choose which files and folders are available for offline use. Other files are visible but only stored as placeholders. These do not take up disk space on the computer and are downloaded on demand only.
Badge icons in the Finder and Windows Explorer indicate the sync status of files – easily assess if the file is only available when online or is synced to your computer for offline editing. Synchronization with the remote storage is paused and resumed automatically depending on your network connection. The application icon in the system tray animates when a background transfer is currently in progress.
Mountain Duck 3 is a paid upgrade. Existing customers get an upgrade discount between 40% and 100% depending on the date of purchase. Please upgrade your license before updating.
We are thrilled to release a public beta of upcoming Mountain Duck 3. The new version is a major milestone in our development timeline. Bridging the gap between online only access with no use of local disk space in Mountain Duck 2 and the new smart synchronization feature in Mountain Duck 3 with much improved performance accessing files is the main focus.
Think of it like Dropbox for any server and cloud storage but with the option to choose which files and folders are available for offline use while others do not take up disk space on your computer.
Smart Synchronization for Offline Usage
The smart synchronization feature allows to make files available offline. You can also choose to make explicitly all or only selected files and folders available for offline use. Changes to files are saved in a local cache first and uploaded in the background as soon as a connection is available.
Badge icons in the Finder and Windows Explorer indicate the status of files – which indicates if the file is only available when online or is synced to your computer for offline editing. Regardless of the status, you will always see all your files!
Synchronization with the remote storage is paused and resumed automatically depending on your network connection but can also be paused by the user manually. You will see a blinking duck icon in your system tray when a background transfer is currently in progress.
Updated documentation for the new smart synchronization feature can be found in our wiki.
Instead of providing Access Key ID and Secret Access Key, authenticate using temporary credentials from AWS Security Token Service (STS) with optional Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), making Cyberduck and Mountain Duck more friendly to enterprise deployments. You will need to install the custom connection profile S3 (Credentials from AWS Security Token Service) available from our website.
Our implementation to obtain temporary credentials is interoperable with standard AWS CLI configuration in ~/.aws/credentials. Refer to our wiki for documentation.
We have taken a big leap forward in performance working on remote volumes with Mountain Duck from applications that read and write temporary files when saving documents. Extended attributes and temporary files from applications are no longer saved on the remote volume but in a local temporary cache only.
This change in version 2.1 significantly speeds up read and write operations from applications.

Google Team Drives are shared spaces where teams can easily store, search, and access their files. Unlike files in My Drive, files in Team Drive belong to the team instead of an individual. Even if members leave, the files stay exactly where they are so your team can continue to share information and get work done. Team Drives is available on G Suite Enterprise, G Suite Business, or G Suite for Education editions.

We are happy to announce Mountain Duck 2 – featuring support for client-side encrypted Cryptomator interoperable vaults – foolproof client-side encryption for cloud storage mounted on your desktop.
Encryption for data at rest prevents unauthorized access regardless of the server or cloud storage infrastructure. You can create secure vaults on any server or cloud storage available through the broad protocol support in Mountain Duck – including Amazon S3, Backblaze B2, Microsoft Azure, Google Drive, Dropbox and OneDrive or any OpenStack Swift, WebDAV or FTP interoperable hosting solution. Additionally you can also connect to your local harddisk and browse Cryptomator Vaults you want to save on your computer.
Starting to secure your data is as easy as creating a new Cryptomator vault by selecting New Encrypted Vault in the context menu and providing a passphrase. Uploads and downloads are transparently encrypted and decrypted respectively with no change in your usual workflow required. You can have encrypted vaults and non-encrypted folders reside along on your storage location.
Version 2 introduces an Info panel for advanced options on files accessible from the context menu in Finder on macOS and File Explorer on Windows in addition to the context menus to copy URLs.
