Description

In search of an alternate to Dropbox but with European servers I came accross the Swiss Pcloud service (https://www.pcloud.com/).

The run their own API as defined at https://docs.pcloud.com/.

May I ask you to evaluate the inclusion of this interface into Cyberduck / Mountainduck, please.

Note: the opensource app "rclone" ("rsync for cloud storage") may offer some insights into the implementation.

Thanks and regards - Richard

It looks like they offer a WebDAV interface at https://webdav.pcloud.com which should work with Cyberduck.

Works for me.

Thanks for the hint. (for unknown reasons I tend to ignore the WebDAV - may have been some bad expierience in early releases back in the days).

Hi - were you successful with the webdav connection? I've managed to connect but opening large folders (containing image files) is slow and each folder has to be opened individually to index / show the contents, which is very slow. When I try to access the mounted drive folders using a third party viewing app it's too slow to open images. Getting frequent server disconnected messages.

Thanks

Replying to tryingit2312: Hello,

I have not been using pCloud for much local yet (currently as a backup for Dropbox and GDrive). The webdav connection worked for my purpose at the moment. pCloud will become my major backup and if I have difficulty with performance I will resort to use the free *rclone* application (command line - not too intuitive).

Note for everyone reading here: the webdav interface does not work when 2FA is activated!

Thanks for the reply, rth10260, I'll check out rclone, it sounds useful, have been looking for a sync solution.

I do actively use pCloud, either synced or as a virtual drive, which I find useful. That's what I was comparing to Mountain Duck.

I wonder if it's possible to get Cyberduck support (@dkocher ?) to comment.

Thanks
