Connect CloudMounter to 4EVERLAND for Unified Decentralised File Management
CloudMounter’s name is intuitive—it’s about mounting cloud services as local disk drives. CloudMounter can mount ftp/sftp, Amazon S3, DropBox, OneDrive and other cloud services to macOS like a hard drive, allowing you to manage files in Finder like a local file.

This is a tutorial article to connect the CloudMounter service to the decentralised platform 4EVERLAND. Enable the management of files stored in decentralised protocols (IPFS & Arweave) as if they were in local Finder, if you are interested, please read on.

Don’t have a folder? We need to create a Bucket in the 4EVERLAND Dashboard.
Create new Buckets
Now I will create two Buckets at the same time because 4EVERLAND supports both IPFS and Arweave; creating two Buckets helps us manage our files better.
Please note that the "Sync to AR" button is turned on to ensure that the files within this Bucket will be automatically uploaded to the Arweave network.
Refresh your Finder, and you will see that the two Buckets have appeared on your local disk.
Finally, use it as much as you like!
Mount all popular cloud storage accounts as regular drives and keep your information safe and secure with CloudMounter. Unlike native clients of Dropbox, Google Drive, MS OneDrive, and other providers, it does not sync your online data, the app connects directly to the cloud servers, thus significantly saving the hard drive space of your computer. CloudMounter also encrypts your files to ensure their safety.
