Hi,

 

seems the CBFS v5 CudaDrive utilize has problems acting like a real physical or USB drive, if you try to start applications directly from the cloud even if offline cached was used. They either report a lot of errors, fail to start at all or some functions do not work, while other applications seem to run fine.

 

CudaDrive behaves like any other hard drive on your computer,

 

This statement is simply not true and overstates the capabilities of CudaDrive, so the possible limitations should be made clear for users switching to cudadrive from a sync approach. The drive acts more like a document storage location, rather than a real local drive in regards to program executions. I was hoping to finally have found a working solution to run one of the portable apps collections directly from the cloud using local caching and not special setup synchronization.

 

Here are some of the test cases that failed to start:

X-Filezilla: http://www.winpenpack.com/main/download.php?view.717

LiberKey: http://www.liberkey.com

PortableApps: http://portableapps.com(Apps->Get more Apps option)

 

thx

Andy

 

PS: What this means for end-users is that, they need to verify each application manually and test if it runs fine from CudaDrive or not. There is no real indicator if a application will run or not. Some simple portable apps refused to work, while some more complex, portable office suits seem to run fine from it.

Just did a retest and have the same problems, any plans to improve to compatibility of your CBFS implementation in the near future?
