We’re glad to announce that Seafile Drive client for Windows is now ready for production use. Since the initial beta release in September, the Drive client has evolved rapidly. Thanks to the feedback from our community, many issues in the beta version have been fixed in the last two months. Now the Drive client is stable enough to be used by general users. You can download it from our website. User manual is available too.
The Drive client is a new way to map your Seafile storage as a virtual drive on your computer. You can access all your files in Seafile without syncing them. We believe it’s a more intuitive way to use cloud storage. For more information about the Drive client, you may read our previous post.
There are still a few milestones ahead for the future releases:
- File locking support
- File upload/download progress
- Encrypted library support
- Keep selected folders always in sync
- Auto update of the client
We’re also working on Linux and Mac version of the Drive client. They’ll be available soon.

We are very interested in Drive Client as a replacemnt for Home Drives in a mixed environment of notebook users and especially terminalserver users on Citrix XenApp. There has to be a way of group policy enrollment trough ADMX files for example, so you control Client configuration and maybe SSO logon and the path for the cache, so the harddisk doesn’t fill up.
Where can we get in touch for this topics?
This is already supported in our sync client. https://manual.seafile.com/config/desktop_customization.html
It should be available to the drive client soon.
Nice work! How is Drive going to handle several users on windows?
There are still some limitations in the software that prevent multiple users to use at the same time. But we’ll work on that later.
Do you have an ETA regarding the mac client ?
We’re targeting Q2 this year for Mac client.
