Like Google Drive, but private!

and under your full control

Runs very fast on any hardware: Linux, Windows, VPS, Shared hosting, NAS, etc.

No import required

Just like you do with an FTP server, point FileRun to where you keep the files on your server, and you will get instant web access to them.

Want to access your files also by other means you have configured (such as FTP or SMB for example)? No problem. Upload, download or manage the same files.

All changes made to the files using FTP or other methods reflect via FileRun without delay.

Desktop sync

Sync files using desktop apps.

Access your files from wherever you are using the compatible mobile apps.

Access via WebDAV. FileRun comes with its own embedded WebDAV server. No server configuration needed.

Great for photos

Fast thumbnail and preview generation. On the fly, while browsing folders.

Timeline browsing, sorting photos and videos cronologically.

Supports all file types that you can think of, video files included.

Group photos together, from various folders, in virtual albums that you can share online.

Metadata support

It automatically extracts and index information Exif, XMP and IPTC, so you can search photos by keywords, dates, author and more.

Add custom metadata fields for any additional information you would like to attach to the pictures. This information can either be automatically extracted from the files, or manually typed by you.

Virtual Drive

The new virtual drive gives you access to files directly from your computer, without impacting all of your disk space.

Spend less time waiting for files to sync and more time being productive.

Guest users

Collaborate with other people without creating accounts for them.

Getting feedback on documents, photos or any type of file has never been this easy.
