Announcing Tonido Drive

We are happy to announce another addition to the TonidoPro family of applications, the Tonido Drive.
Tonido Drive will also work for our existing WebsharePro customers and all TonidoPlug owners.

Until now, in Windows OS, the primary way to access any computer running Tonido software is via Web browser. In cases where WebsharePro is installed in Tonido server, WebDAV clients could be used to expose the Tonido server as drive. However, the WebDAV implementation in windows have been quite buggy and generally unusable.  TonidoDrive solves this problem for windows users by providing a robust and custom solution to expose the Tonido server as a network drive to the Windows operating system.

Now you can access your files and folders as a normal windows folder!  This ideal for accessing all your documents and pictures with minimum hassle.


Some of the features of TonidoDrive are

  • TonidoDrive can be installed on Window XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7
  • TonidoDrive operates seamlessly with Tonido Security, including Folder access restrictions
  • TonidoDrive can expose any Tonido server enabled computer (Windows, Linux, MacOS) or TonidoPlug as a Windows network drive
  • TonidoDrive will automatically use local LAN IP to access Tonido enabled device to optimize access speeds.
  • TonidoDrive is built on a robust Windows file system driver that is known for its reliability and security.

The TonidoDrive will expose the Tonido enabled device as a Windows Network Drive and allows all Windows File system operations: Read, Write, Drag-and-Drop, Rename, delete. In short,  The TonidoDrive is just like an another disk drive in your computer.


The system tray icon provides all the controls needed to manage to TonidoDrive. The TonidoDrive uses a local cache to reduce latency, so your data can be accessed with minimal delay!

TonidoDrive Settings


The TonidoDrive is being released a beta at this point and we will release the final version in coming days after beta phase. You can learn more and download it here.

As always, Please let us know your comments, questions and suggestions via our Forums

Prepare Media Support

In many cases it might be useful to prepare your media before remote use, especially large photos so that when shared, they appear instantly without any time spent on creating thumbnails and slide show images.

To prepare a folder and all contents within the sub-folders, simply open the folder’s context menu and choose “Prepare Media”.


To view the status of the “Prepare Media”, you can open Settings->Misc and check “Running Jobs”.


Share Current Folder

It is easier to share the current folder you are browsing.


Image Rotate Support

It is now possible to rotate images when you are viewing them in the image gallery. This makes it a handy took to fix those pesky non-rotated photos before sharing.


Tonido Sync

  • Backwards Incompatible Change: If you had changed the default TonidoSync location by editing the XML file, the syncclientconfig.xml file is now stored in a different location . So YOU NEED to make the change in the new XML file in the new location before upgrading to new TonidoSync. Please see
  • Tonido Sync now fixes a critical issue where it was not detecting changes in sub-folders below the top level folders on Linux and TonidoPlug.
  • TonidoSync now correctly shows the name of the user who updated the file instead of just showing original user who created the file
  • TonidoSync doesn’t sync files in active use

Other Fixes

  • WebsharePro shows saved custom header instead of clearing it
  • MediaServer now sorts files and folders alphabetically
