After installing Drive client with the instructions on the download page, you can double-click the "SeaDrive" app icon on your desktop to start the Drive client.
You'll be asked to choose a drive letter for the virtual drive. By default, "S:" will be used.
Then you'll be asked to log into your Nihao Cloud server. You will have to type it manually or copy paste it from your browser: https://app.nihaoconsult.com/ . This URL is our current official URL and should work from anywhere in the world to login and use the system.
After successful log on to the server, the Drive client will start to fetch libraries and file list from the Nihao Cloud. The file contents are not downloaded at this moment. So it'll not take very long. You can let it run in the background. You'll be noticed when the fetch is done.
The virtual drive folder will be opened. You'll find it works just like an ordinary hard drive on your computer. The top-level folders in the virtual drive are libraries on the Nihao Cloud server. File contents will be downloaded when you open a file. The recently opened file will be cached on your local disk. All cached files will be marked with a green tick.
Files and folders in the virtual drive are in either cloud-only, synced, or in the partially synced state.
FAQ1. Why can't I create new files or delete folders in the root folder?
The root folder of the virtual drive contains only library folders. Drive can only sync files inside libraries. Files in the root folder cannot be uploaded to Nihao server. So it doesn't make sense to support creating files in the root folder. Since the top-level folders in the virtual drive represent libraries, we don't want users to delete their libraries by mistake. So the Drive client doesn't support deleting top-level folders.
