Is there anyway to connect Onedrive to Amikit? I have all my files on Onedrive as I have a 1TB storage there and dont use dropbox.

thanks

Hello,

I am not familiar with Onedrive, but if the files are stored also on your local drive (like Dropbox), you can add the folder to WinUAE (in CD&HardDrives section click Add directory). This way you should be also able to mount network drives but I have never tried it. Anyway, if your Onedrive on Windows is mounted as network drive, AmiKit/WinUAE can detect it on startup and mount it on Amiga desktop automatically too. Hope it helps?

I don't keep the files on my local drive. I store all the files on Microsoft Onedrive which makes them accessible via the cloud to any device that I sign into Onedrive with. Its a similar storage facility as Dropbox but a lot better and cheaper for extended storage as I can store upto 1tb of data

I understand. If the files are not stored locally (like with Dropbox) then a driver is needed on Amiga side. And I am afraid I am not aware such Amiga driver exists.

But are you sure the files are not stored on your PC locally too and synced with the cloud? I read something about "Files On-Demand" feature which enables you to work with your OneDrive files even in offline mode. Just find the local folder where such files are stored and mount it with WinUAE.

I upload the files to Onedrive using a different computer to what Amikit runs on

What I am trying to say is that the "Files On-Demand" feature makes your cloud data available on your local computers too. Just login to Onedrive on a new computer and the files you marked as available offline should be downloaded to your local folder automatically. Please check the "Files On-Demand" feature of your Onedrive for more details.

All you have to do then is to mount this local folder in AmiKit/WinUAE.
