DriveHQ Launches FileManager Lite for Windows 8

Dec. 2, 2012, San Ramon, California - Drive Headquarters (https://www.drivehq.com), the first cloud IT solution provider, announces DriveHQ FileManager Lite for Windows 8.

FileManager Lite for Windows 8 is optimized for tablets and touch enabled laptops and PCs. It does not have the full features of FileManager for Windows (i.e. the desktop version), but it has a much smaller footage, runs in the new tile interface, and can be easily installed via Microsoft's Windows Store.

Windows 8 is designed to unify PCs, laptops, tablets and smartphones with the same OS. It represents a dramatic change to the previous Windows versions. DriveHQ Cloud IT Service is a one-stop shop for all core IT services. We are committed to support all major platforms. We have already supported Windows 7 and older versions of Windows, MAC, iOS, Android and Windows Phone 7. Now we also support Windows 8, Windows RT and Windows Phone 8.

"There is a quick shift to mobile computing. FileManager Lite for Windows 8 is mainly designed for converged devices such as tablets and laptop-tablet hybrids. With this release, we have supported devices of any size, from desktops to smartphones." Says Sean Lee, DriveHQ’s Chief Product Manager. "Our commitment to our customers is, you are not limited to just one feature or one service, you are not limited to any one platform, you are not limited to any one device, and you are not limited to any one location."

FileManager Lite for Windows 8 includes the following main features:

  • Access, preview or download cloud files;
  • Upload photos, videos, documents and other files;
  • Create, edit and delete cloud files / folders;
  • Access folders shared to you;
  • Display thumbnails and preview photos;
  • Share folders to different people with different permissions;
