Box has announced the release of a desktop 'Box Drive' app for macOS and Windows that provides secure access to all your files stored in Box.

With Box Drive, people benefit from all of the advanced capabilities of Box – including creating, editing, finding and sharing files – without ever leaving the comfort of their desktop. Available for Windows, MacOS and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), Box Drive is the easiest way for businesses and teams to instantly collaborate on content and kick start productivity.

“Box Drive combines infinite access to the cloud with an intuitive, natively integrated desktop experience that is familiar to hundreds of millions of people today in enterprises all over the world,” said Aaron Levie, cofounder and CEO, Box. “Not only will Box Drive make collaborating on content easier than ever before, it also signals the beginning of the end for expensive network file shares. With Box Drive, enterprises can accelerate their move to the cloud, enhance security, and significantly reduce IT costs.”



Box Drive uses a familiar file finder interface that is natively integrated into Windows Explorer and Mac Finder so users simply click to open their Box Drive folder and gain instant access to all of their Box content. Working in Box Drive, when a user creates a new document, edits a PDF, or uploads a new video, for example, all changes are automatically saved back to Box and are instantly visible to team members, making everyone more productive and collaborative.

"Box Drive makes the switch to the cloud seamless and painless for businesses still fixated on traditional file shares,” said Dan Dorato-Hankins of Vector Media. “With Box Drive, our users have increased Box usage over 50% and have infinitely increased team collaboration in our offices nationwide. Accessing company data is easier than ever, but with the security of a bank vault."

What is the difference between Box Drive and existing Box Sync?

Box has traditionally made the worst app of all cloud storage solutions. So buggy it's caused system instability. Anyone know if they've cleaned up their act and this app will work properly now? I still don't trust them.

Yes Box used to be buggy but now it is definitely improved. I use it more than DropBox, OneDrive, iCloud and any other service. It syncs well it my iPad pro and Mac. I also have it synced with my server which automatically uploads and downloads files. I use Box for all my clients (I do graphic design). So for me, to answer your question, Box is one of the best today.
