Xdrive offers many functional features that will help you upload and share your files. There are many pre–made folders and you can add some of your own to organize your files. You are able to view your photos and listen to your music directly from the interface. This is a practical feature; for example, you could be at a friend’s house and share your favorite tunes without downloading them.

Xdrive has a new beta feature called Web Grab. Through Web Grab, you can download music, videos, pictures and other files from the web directly into your Xdrive space. The files never reach your computer until you’re ready to use them.
