Guide: How to use Amazonís Cloud Drive on your desktop as a folder Late last month, Amazon launched their much anticipated Cloud Drive, offering anyone with an Amazon account 5GB of free cloud storage.
As the company explains it, Amazon Cloud Drive is your hard drive in the cloud. Store your music, videos, photos, and documents on Amazon's secure servers. All you need is a web browser to upload, download, and access your files from any computer.

If you need more than 5GB, you can pay $1 per GB per year for up to 1TB of storage.

While Cloud Drive is great (highly recommended), it does not have the same great features of Dropbox, which places a folder on your desktop (or anywhere else) so that you can drag-and-drop files of your choice into the folder and it automatically updates your cloud storage. No need to head to a browser and upload a file.

In this guide we will teach you how to create a Dropbox-esque folder for Cloud Drive, making the free service into a very useful cloud storage tool.
