it Was in August of 2016 when Samsung released the Samsung Cloud, their particular storage platform in the cloud with 15 GB free that all Samsung smartphones bring pre-installed by default. This serves both to make backup copies of the files of the gallery as a backups of the device, although until now was only accessible from a mobile or tablet in the house.
however, the Korean company is enabled a version of Samsung Cloud, which can be access from the browser from our computer. What is and what can be done with it? We’re going to see a little more in depth.
Samsung Cloud, a cloud that you can download but you cannot upload
we first find the access to the platform is a summary of the status of our account. In it we see the storage that we have available and that we’ve already used broken down by categories: Gallery, Samsung Cloud Drive, backup device, My Knox and secure folder and other data in sync. If you click on each of the sections we will be able to see more details.
If you click on “Gallery” you can access to all the photos and videos that you’ve synced from your mobile or tablet. All of them are in their original resolution. You can download them one at a time, mark the ones you want to download to get a zip file or download them all at once by pressing the button on the cuadadrito with the arrow that appears in the upper-right area. While it is true that it is a useful feature, the reality is that a limp of one foot: you can’t upload photos or videos from the computer, so the file transfer is unilateral.
In the “device Backups”, you’ll find all the backups you’ve made of all the mobile and tablet Samsung you have at home and that you are logged on to. If you press on any one of them you’ll have access to a breakdown that will show you exactly what it is that you have saved (such as calendar events, call log, documents, etc.). The only thing you can do with them is delete them, but nothing to export it to the hard disk.
Finally, in the “Other data synchronized”, “Samsung Cloud Drive” and “My Knox and secure folder” you will find all the remaining files that you have uploaded to these platforms, such as documents or music. It would be expected that Samsung’s Cloud Drive, which allows you to store all kinds of files, we might gain something from the PC, but not. In fact, the platform invites you to “add files from your phone or tablet to fill the drive”.
For the moment, the only usefulness of this tool is move files from the mobile device or tablet to your computer, but not in the opposite direction. We did not find an app that we can install in the computer to automatically download files to a PC as synced in the cloud (as happens with Google Drive or Dropbox). In that sense, Samsung Cloud still has much room for improvement.
The news Samsung Cloud already allows you to access your files from the browser, so does was originally published in Xataka Android by Jose García Nieto .
