Infinity Drive (10-11-2019) Win-373

Hi folks,

Here’s another Infinity Drive release on Windows with some additional features:

Infinity Drive (Win v.373):

  • Right-click --> Open feature to force download / redownload of a file and open it. Use this to force download .exe and .zip files or if any unusual application-specific behaviors occur which prevent downloading the full content when the file is sparse.
  • Sparse files now have a cloud badge to help indicate their status.
  • Progress monitor adjustments to simplify the user experience.
  • Customizations: for developers creating their own custom infinity drive, it is now easier to name the cloud storage provider setting (for Windows Explorer left navigation pane) and customize the icon.
  • Customizations: it is now easier to customize the file/folder badge icons.
  • Installer, upgrade, and configuration adjustments
  • Other bug fixes and improvements.

There are also some additional commands which have been added to the new drive shell utility:

  • New drive shell commands:
    • download --recursive: specify a folder path to download the content of any sparse files.
    • offload: specify a path to free up disk space, converting regular (full content) files to sparse files. Optionally specify if you only want to target files that have been inactive (based on last upload or download time) for more than a specified number of days.
    • sync unsync: specify a path (file or folder) within Infinity Drive to disable sync.
    • schedule offload: specify a daily time to perform offload against a specific local path within Infinity Drive.

The drive shell can be found with the Infinity Drive application files, e.g. %userprofile%\AppData\Local\infinity\application\373\bin\infinity\drive.exe. Currently, the drive shell is an undocumented feature, but when you start the drive shell, you can look at the list of commands at the drive> prompt by just hitting the Enter key without any command specified. The usage output will describe what commands are available and how to execute them. In the future, there may be additional documentation available in the usage guide for the drive shell.

As usual, you can get the Infinity Drive build from here, and the usage guide documentation is available for more information on how to set up and use the Infinity Drive.

Best,
-Jeff
