Access Your FTP, SkyDrive, DropBox, GoogleDrive, Box, and SugarSync Accounts From Your Flash Drive

I’ve said it before, “If you can think it, someone else has done it!”. Recently I was thinking that it would be nice to have a portable app that would allow me to access my my SkyDrive, Box and GoogleDrive accounts from my flash drive.  This scenario would allow me to quickly access these accounts, perform file and folder operations, from any internet enabled computer, without going through the normal browser login process to do the same.

CarotDAVSure enough, after some searching, I  came across a portable WebDav client, called CarotDAV, that gives you the ability to access your web based FTP, SkyDrive, DropBox, GoogleDrive, Box, and SugarSync accounts.


CarotDAV is a Simple WebDAV / FTP / SkyDrive / DropBox / GoogleDrive / Box / SugarSync client for Windows OS, available free of charge. It is also able to read GoogleDocs or IMAP.

Don’t let the term WebDav client turn you away in thinking that this is some high tech process; when in fact it is not. This is as simple as downloading the CarotDav portable software, installing it to your flashdrive and entering the settings to your online accounts. The only problem I encountered was that I was not able to access my GoogleDrive account (which  may be an issue on my part); however, I am able to access my Box and SkyDrive accounts with ease. Regardless, CarotDAV has given me a good way to get to my online files without performing a browser login (which, in itself can be a security issue on another computer).  I also like the fact that I can password protect access to CarotDAV.

CarotDAV is available both as a portable program and installation package that works on Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8.

    1. Brian,

      Are you in the UK? This may be the issue. I would contact the developer on this. I had no problem, I simply created a new connection, entered a setting name (i.e. Rick’s SkyDrive), clicked on authorize and the software walked me through the setup. Hope you can get this going because it is working great here.



      1. Thank you very much I was reading to much into it, i was
        Filling everything in,when all it needed was my name.
        By the way I live in Spain, Thanks Thanks..


      2. Brian,

        I did the same exact thing you did; which was one of the reasons I put some steps in the last response. Otherwise, works great! I am having a problem getting GoogleDrive to work though.

        Thanks for dropping by…
