Download and stream movies, TV shows and other multimedia files right away using this simple and straightforward P2P file sharing tool
Counting dozens of millions of users across the globe uTorrent is among the most popular and widely-used P2P sharing file tool. Although it was a rather quiet launch, BitTorrent has launched a web version of their client that is estimated to rival the standalone client in the long run.
uTorrent Web is a lightweight piece of software that enables you to download and stream torrents directly in your default web browser. As with the original client, the tool allows you to open torrent and magnet link files automatically in a browser window.
While you may be tempted to believe, this is simply another version of the same application, the truth is that the app comes with a major perk, which is the streaming option. Therefore, if you are downloading multimedia files, you will be happy to learn that they take very little to load and they can be played right away. On a side note, the load and play quality are both influenced by the downloading speed.
When streaming videos, you can enjoy both audio and video that work fairly well. Moreover, if the file you are grabbing contains more than one audio or video source, you can select the one you want. It goes without saying that the tool enables you to download other types of files from the web, but the difference is that these are not streamed.
Even though the streaming is the strong point of the tool, the truth is that the project is still in its infancy and you can easily observe that as soon as you access the Preferences window. To be more precise, you can modify the download location and specify the speed for the time being. Nevertheless, more options are likely to appear in the near future, depending on the suggestions and needs of the users.
All in all, uTorrent Web is a reliable P2P file sharing product, but it would be unfair to compare it to the big names at least for the time being. Consequentially, if you are looking for something fast and intuitive to grab and stream torrents from the web, then perhaps you can consider giving it a try.

An application that runs as an interface between you and the OneDrive storage system, enabling you to keep important files with you anywhere
Microsoft comes with its own file sharing and cloud backup solution, providing a reputable competitor to services provided by the other giants in the IT world, such as Google, Dropbox or Apple. Called OneDrive, Microsoft’s cloud service became a popular cloud storage solution among regular consumers, mostly due to the fact that it comes integrated with Windows.
With a storage size limit in the basic, cost-free plan of 5 GB and an affordable price range for 100 GB and more, it’s safe to say that OneDrive successfully rivals the biggest names in this field.
Working with OneDrive is basically the same as with any other similar cloud storage solution. Once logged in, a dedicated OneDrive folder is created on the local computer, a folder where you can place the files you want synced to the cloud. In essence, you specify the files and the directories to back up and OneDrive takes care of uploading them to the cloud and making them available to you on any other device where you set up OneDrive.
Uploading files to the cloud not only that it allows you to back up important content, but it can also save you a significant amount of storage space. Furthermore, you get to easily share files with others by simply sending them the link OneDrive generates for you.
As expected, OneDrive is running in the background, allowing you to access it via the system tray. Double-clicking on the icon opens the OneDrive folder in Windows Explorer, while right-clicking on it opens a popup window where you can see the sync status, open your encrypted personal vault and access additional settings.
One of the noticeable pluses of OneDrive compared to other cloud storage solutions is its integration with the Office suite and other Microsoft services, such as Outlook, OneNote or Skype, facilitating document collaboration and file sharing. Not just that you get to work with your colleagues on the same file and share ideas easier, but you also get automatic saving, so there is a very low risk of losing your work.
OneDrive is a cloud storage solution like all the others, but it brings to the table the advantage of Office 365 integration. If you are a dedicated Windows user and work with Office on a daily basis, then this option is definitely for you.

Easily sync files through SSH, FTP, FTP/S and SFTP using this intricate program that supports scheduled tasks and email notifications
If you're looking for an intricate software solution to help you seamlessly sync files between your computers and another machine via FTP, you can check out Batchsync. It's an advanced Managed File Transfer (MFT) application that comes bundled with comprehensive options dedicated to file transfer and sync.
The tool is capable of automatic file transfer tasks using SSH, FTP, FTP/S and SFTP. It can even transfer files from Windows-based systems to other platforms like Linux, FreeBSD, Mac, Amazon EC2, Raspberry Pi, and NanoPi.
Batchsync is wrapped in a user-friendly interface that adopts a straightforward approach. Setting up a new task can be easily done through a wizard, from specifying a task name and transfer mode, to configuring connection settings and selecting the files you want to take into account for the task.
As far as the transfer mode is concerned, the program can be instructed to send only, receive only, or to create a two-way sync that allows both sending and receiving files until the two folders become identical in contents.
Advanced data variables can be established when selecting the source folder, such as year, month and day. You can connect to a Linux, Mac, cloud SSH, Raspberry Pi, FreeBSD or other mainframes via SSH, connect to a Windows IIS or other server via FTP/S (implicit, explicit with data, explicit without data), or connect to a standard FTP server.
Once the connection settings are configured correctly (host or IP address, username, password, server port, IPv6), Batchsync should be able to quickly establish the link to the remote server. Next, the task is immediately added to the task list but doesn't get started automatically. Instead, you can go ahead and create more tasks if necessary, then click a button to initialize all of them at the same time.
A bunch of useful log details are displayed during the sync job, such as number of transferring items, total data, speed, and errors (if any). Task properties can be edited anytime, such as automatically deleting the source files on successful sync jobs to help preserve disk space. Plus, you can schedule sync jobs to run at a later time, as well as enable email notifications.
The software application ran smoothly on the latest Windows version in our tests. It performed sync jobs swiftly while remaining light on system resources consumption. Thanks to its intuitive interface and comprehensive configuration settings, Batchsync should meet the requirements of picky users looking for a reliable file syncing application.

Download and create torrents, search for files, create download queues and change task priorities with this high-speed torrent client
Torrents are one of the best methods out there for distributing files over the Internet, both legit and legal content as well as some not-so-legal and a bit shady "stuff."
The BitTorrent protocol has pretty much become synonymous with torrents over the years, and for good reason, as most torrent clients are based on it.
Even though there are numerous BitTorrent clients out there, probably none is more well-rounded than qBittorrent.
For starters, it's free and open-source. This means that its code is publicly available for everyone to check out and even have a crack at improving the client in order to suit particular styles and needs.
Even though qBittorrent is one of the oldest torrent clients out there (released in 2006), it's still actively developed by various volunteers from its dedicated user base.
Another great aspect of qBittorrent is the fact that it doesn't have any hidden trackers or extremely annoying and potentially harmful adware and bloatware.
The app has one of the most uncluttered interfaces out of all the torrent clients out there. You still get the basic, almost iconic top toolbar prevalent in all apps of this sort with all the required functions such as "Add Torrent Link," "Add torrent file," "Delete," "Resume," "Pause," and "Settings."
Speaking of settings, this particular menu has similar options to other popular apps of this sort, with everything being clearly defined via relevant icons.
The app also works on all major OSes out there such as macOS, Linux, and Microsoft Windows. Last but not least, it's worth noting that qBittorrent is one of the most lightweight and fastest torrent clients out there, mainly thanks to the lack of bloat.
If you're asking if qBittorrent can hold its own versus more modern torrent clients, then rest assured, it totally can.
qBittorrent works with pretty much all types of torrent-associated data and formats (everything from Magnet links, distributed hash tables, peer exchange protocols, to private torrents, and even encrypted connections).
The app includes other basic torrenting features such as automatic UPnP/NAT-PMP port forwarding, sequential downloads, scheduled speed limiter, bandwidth scheduler, a torrent creating tool, IP filtering (eMule and PeerGuardian-compatible), and even a Web UI.
The Web UI is written in AJAX and is pretty much similar to the one of the app, and it is perfect for viewing content from other machines.
The app also includes a built-in search engine that lets you search your favorite content simultaneously on multiple torrent search sites, as well as perform category-specific search requests.
Of course, to access this particular function, you'll have to install the relevant search plugin for the preferred torrent site, which some consider being a bit of a hindrance since the plug-ins in question may not always be up to date.
In the case of qBittorrent, success has always been defined by more than just one or two features. It is one of the most popular client torrents out there because it does almost everything right.
It offers all the required basic torrent management tools, a web UI, its functionality is easily extensible, it's available in over 70 languages, it's fast, it's lightweight, it's cross-platform, open-source, and free.
Some design-oriented users might object to its somewhat plain and outdated interface, and it may not be the best app of this sort for all users out there, but at the end of the day, qBittorrent is one of the best all-round torrent clients out there, and will probably continue to be so for the foreseeable future.

Store and sync your files on the cloud and also share any of them effortlessly with your friends over the Internet with this straightforward application
Dropbox is one of the most popular file sharing and cloud storage services out there, making it easy for you to access files on the go.
