Get all your files on demand

Desktop, meet cloud

Box Drive is the incredibly simple way to stream all of your files — even terabytes of data — right to your desktop, taking up very little hard drive space. Open your Windows Explorer or Mac Finder to find every file you need, edit like you would any local file and save it automatically to the cloud. And, keep enterprise-grade security protecting everything you do.

Seamlessly create and edit files

Work with files in the cloud just as if they were on your desktop. Whether you create a new Microsoft Word document or edit a PDF in Adobe, any changes you make will automatically save back to Box.

Never run out of hard drive space

Your files are streamed directly to your desktop from the cloud, so it's quick and easy to access all your files without using much hard drive space.

Never lose a file again

Since files are no longer stored on your hard drive by default, using Box Drive reduces the risk of data loss if your device is lost or stolen.

Quickly find what you need

Find any shared or personal file in Box without having to use a browser.  The search bar is a fast, convenient way to locate a file or folder without having to browse through all your content in Box.

Easily share your workspace

Right click any file or folder to share instantly or open on to turn folders into collaborative workspaces by inviting your team to edit and upload files.

Save without fear

Ironically, saving a file can be a very destructive event-- an errant "save" can cause you to lose a lot of work if you cannot access past file versions. Because Box automatically retains past versions of files every time you click "save", you will never have to worry about losing work. 

Save millions replacing your network file shares

Working with files in Box Drive is just like working with files in a network share, offering the same ease and simplicity without the high costs and hang-ups. In fact, Box projects that customers across industries such as real estate, healthcare and financial services have the potential to realize cost savings of $1.3M to $6M or more over three years when retiring legacy infrastructure with Box.

Easily drive adoption and get everyone in the cloud

Box Drive is easy for teams to learn and simple for them to use because it’s grounded in what they already know: the desktop. Plus, Box Drive supports Mac, Windows and VDI environments so everyone gets the same great experience.

Protect user files and reduce need for desktop backup solutions

Since files are no longer stored on your user's hard drives by default, using Box Drive reduces the risk of data loss if your device is lost or stolen. And you can even reduce your reliance on desktop backup solutions.
