New Features – Better Referrals, Folder Uploads, Zip Downloads, Gallery, Performance Tweaks

December 1, 2012

Hi everyone,

Over the last couple of weeks, as you might have noticed, we have been making many changes and updates to our website and today we are really excited because our all new referral system has just went live! This comes with storage incentives which all you guys can enjoy and also now you can accumulate more space than ever by just recommending IDriveSync to your friends. Here’s a summary of how this works and also below is a list of our last few releases. If any of you have tried any of these features, let us know what you think of them!

Referral incentives

You can now not only recommend IDriveSync to your friends through more channels like Facebook, Twitter, etc but when your friends join, both of you will earn a reward of 1GB storage which will be added to your account automatically. You can either send personal invites by email or you can share the referral link with all your friends on Facebook and Twitter. We also give you an extra bonus of 500MB when you like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter! Here’s how you can start:

As soon as you log in to your account, click on the ‘Get more space’ icon.


There will be a variety of tasks here through which you can earn more storage. And the more tasks you complete, the more storage you earn!

You can even see how much space is left for you to earn in this graph:


Folder upload

You can now upload folders directly by either selecting Upload Folder option just beneath the Home button or by simply dragging a folder from your desktop and dropping it on our website. (Supported only on Chrome browser)


Gallery view

Our new Gallery view is beautifully designed to highlight all your photos by presenting them on a black background. You can click any image and see this display, and you can also perform actions on your file from here itself.


To view all images present in the folder, just click the ‘Gallery view’ icon in the menu options present below the picture.


Another way to reach the Gallery is by clicking this icon gridview present beside the search bar. Please note that this option appears only when there are image or video files present in the folder you are viewing.


Multiple folder download

This was one of our most requested features and as we promised you can now easily download folders from within your account – just right click on a folder or click the droparrow button to see the Download option.


You can also select multiple folders at a time and download them together as a zip file.


We hope you enjoy all these features. In addition, we have done numerous performance tweaks for various operations. And as always, keep following our blog for more updates!
