Mountain Duck


Mountain Duck is an inexpensive, user-licensed application developed by the same team as Cyberduck, serving as a versatile file access tool. It allows users to mount server and cloud storage accounts as local disks in Finder on macOS and the File Explorer on Windows. Supporting various protocols like FTP, SFTP, WebDAV, and cloud storage providers, including Storj, Mountain Duck provides a seamless integration of remote storage into the user's file system.

In this brief tutorial, we'll go over downloading and setting up Mountain Duck to integrate with Storj, facilitating easy and intuitive drag-and-drop file transfer to Storj.
