OwnCloud client now supports multiple accounts




The developers behind the open source storage ownCloud have released Tuesday version 2.0. The latest release provides the ability to synchronize with a desktop client with multiple accounts on different servers.

This can be particularly useful for users who, for example, a working and a private server to synchronize simultaneously. They can therefore account for each set which folders can be uploaded and which are not. For the multi-account support, the developers modified the interface to something, appears in a blog post.

The developers also took the management of large folders on the shovel. Users could previously determine which admittedly large folders could be shared and what not, but they could only make that decision once the files were actually online. This resulted in a possible full disk, which in turn could cause other problems.

To prevent large folders ensure unforeseen overflowing drives, the developers have ensured that users can now set a threshold. This means that any directory that is greater than that value, default will not be uploaded. Then a notification will appear where the user has to indicate that he really wants to upload the folder.

Finally, the developers performed a few minor changes. So ownCloud now supports long path names in Windows. In addition, the open source storage system with version 2.0 includes integration with OS X Finder Yosemite. Furthermore, both platforms support the option to not upload hidden files.
