We all know pCloud is one of the most popular cloud storage services available now with their unique features. Now, a new cloud storage service is available, similar to pCloud called the Icedrive. But, before proceeding further, we would like to say that we cannot compare Icedrive with pCloud even though both have similarities. The main highlight of Ice drive is that they provide 10GB of free cloud storage which you can expand up to 1TB.
Icedrive is a new addition to the cloud storage service and is provided by a UK-based company, whereas pCloud comes with Swiss-based privacy protection. But what makes Icedrive attractive at the first look is its design. Its web app and mobile app follow the material design with a clean and attractive style.

Features of Icedrive Cloud Storage
Some of the main features of Icedrive includes:
1. Drive Mount For PC
Icedrive Windows application provides drive-based access in which the Icedrive storage will mount on the system like an external hard drive. However, the application will not utilize system storage to store and Sync files. Instead, all the files and folders added to the Icedrive cloud drive will be automatically synced to the cloud server. And the files will be accessible from the web and other mobile apps instantly.
2. Inbuilt Photo Viewer and Video Player
The Icedrive web and mobile app provide an inbuilt photo viewer and video player so that you can view any video files or images without the help of any 3rd party applications.
3. Sync between applications
It will sync files available on Icedrive storage with mobile and web apps simultaneously as other cloud storage. But from the experience, the sync speed of Icedrive is not as fast as expected. Hence the syncing speed is a bit disappointing when we compare it with pCloud where the service is speedy.
4. Icedrive Applications
Icedrive provides a web-based application along with a Windows application that provides a native drive feature. Icedrive also provides a mobile application, which is available for both Android and iOS.
Icedrive Plans and Pricing

As mentioned above, Icedrive has some similarities like pCloud that includes Native windows drive and the lifetime subscription, the monthly bandwidth rule, etc. However, we cannot compare both services together. pCloud has now made its presence in the market and has stable performance. However, Icedrive is still in the initial stage and the speed and sync of Icedrive are not at all good. But, with comparatively cheaper price, it’s worth trying Icedrive too.
