  • (2023-04-24) Larissa Beck: It doesn't work properly. The extension was installed for the whole company, but in my computer (MacBook Pro) loose the connection every single time the extension is updated. It's frustrating, and Technical Department hasn't solutions. Anyone knows what could be the problem? Thanks
  • (2023-04-11) Is there a way to have it not autolock every-time I same or open something?
  • (2022-10-30) Rick I (Mojave Rick): I have an ARM based laptop that is not compatible with the Google Drive app. AODocs combined with the local client is the only way to sync my files across my other devices. Works perfectly for me! I would love it if AODocs would let me select the folder I want my spreadsheets to sync to that way I can take advantage of the external links I have between different files.
  • (2022-07-11) Rik van den Reijen: Seems cool but hard to figure out (still haven't). I would like to use this extension to open URL's straight from my Google Drive however it is showing up as an open with option :(
  • (2022-05-17) Eric Im: What a life saver for me especially when you're blocked by Windows security from installing the normal Google Drive for Desktop!
  • (2020-03-31) Seek Christ ツ: IT IS SO GOOD I CAN DOWNLOAD ANYTHING
  • (2020-03-06) Menandro DELA VEGA: It's a great help for people who are new to Google (like me). I have a question, you can only use this on Non -Google files? Is there an app that open Google files into your local program, example, a Google Sheet file will open in Microsoft Office Excel or alike?
  • (2019-08-01) Alessandro Scannapieco: Works great, I currently use it regularly as it improves my Google Drive experience.
  • (2019-06-21) Rena Washer: Why do I have to keep uninstalling and reinstalling this every single week? It is quite annoying especially when you are trying to work.
  • (2019-04-15) Thomas Chubb: Works occasionally, then at other time it doesn't. For example, I have been using the Universal File Opener to edit pptx files that I have saved on drives by hovering over the file and slecting the "Open File" icon. Today, that I con won;t appear and I can't open the file that way.

  • (2020-05-07, v:5.0) Todd Johnston: Constantly running & using too much CPU
    Since the last update, the UFO synccclient is constantly running in the background. Using 60-70% of the CPU, rendering my laptop virtually useless. I regularly need to end the task in Task Manager. Several colleagues are having the same issue.
  • (2020-03-19, v:4.0) File types assigned to applications
    How do I change file types (jpgs) from current associated applications to a new one?
  • (2020-02-18, v:4.0) Marketing Manager Novis Healthcare: Can't use - mac latest OS with Chrome
    Hi, I enjoyed using this great extension :) it is great when it works, but for some strange reason, I notice sometimes the extension icon on my chrome ribbon is grey out and it doesn't work. I cannot get it going playing with the controls there. I am logged into the same chrome person all the time. I do use it for a multiple of gmail addresses but I have installed the extension on Chrome and it appears it is on the same status whichever gmail I am on... I tried to use it with pdf, indesign and excel. Nothing works.
