What Does FileFlex Do?

Remote Access - It provides you remote access to your files and folders from their source locations, no matter where you stored them. Access can be from a Windows, Mac or Linux computer; Android, iOS, BlackBerry or Windows tablet or smart phone; or any internet connected kiosk. The access to all storage is from a simple dashboard.

File Sharing - It allows you to remotely share files from their source locations without having to sync, move or upload them to the cloud. It does not use links that can be forwarded or copied to social media. Instead it is permission-based to prevent unauthorized access. The files and folders you share act like an extension of your recipient’s local device. There are no storage limitations, no file size limits, no quality degradation (no compression) and no complicated IT type setup requirements for the sharing of files.

Media Streaming - It allows the streaming of media files from their source locations to the user or to any contact. This allows the consumption and sharing of massive collections of home videos, movies and music by family and friends right from where they are stored. You don’t need to upload to the cloud and they don’t need to download - they stream from your storage.

Remote Multi-Location File Management - FileFlex is arguably the world’s best file manager app because it provides remote file management between multiple devices. The traditional file manager include an ability to create folders, as well as cut, copy, paste, move and upload and delete files. But that is where a traditional file manager ends. It works for devices you are connected to, but not when you are remote.

FileFlex enables you to use any internet connected smart phone, tablet or secondary computer to remotely cut, paste, copy, delete, rename, move and organize any document no matter where it is stored. You can even cut, copy and paste files between your various storage devices remotely. You don’t have to be at home or in the office to organize your files, you can keep things organized from anywhere.

Remote Network Access - It turns networked devices into a powerful gateway into all storage. For example, with FileFlex on your server (or NAS, or networked PC), you can use that server to access, share, stream and perform remote multi-device file management functions to any and all the storage on the server and all storage on the server’s network. You are virtualizing access to the server, any server attached storage such as a NAS, SAN, DAS, private cloud and every PC and laptop on the same network as the server.
