EMERYVILLE, Calif. --( ADrive ( announced a new set of features today, and is still continuing to offer 50GB of free online data storage to its users. Online document editing, support of international characters, remote URL file transfer capability, the ability to email files to friends directly from your ADrive account, a simple HTTP upload tool, and a new search function for simpler navigation through your stored ADrive files are among the new features just released.

ADrive is utilizing technology from Zoho® to allow users to edit documents online, directly from their ADrive account. Users can now edit word processing documents and spreadsheet files stored in their ADrive account by simply clicking on the ‘Edit’ button, making changes to the files using the Zoho Editor, and saving changes directly to their ADrive account without having to re-upload a new file.

ADrive’s online storage service has gained popularity worldwide and has just launched the support of international characters. Files stored to ADrive may now contain non-English characters as opposed to the previous English-only character allowance.

Another recent addition to ADrive’s suite of tools is the ability to remotely transfer files to your ADrive account from external websites. When users are logged into ADrive, they can click on the ‘Grab Remote File’ link and then paste the link of the file they wish to save to their account. A ‘Download is Complete’ message will appear once the file has been successfully transferred to the user’s ADrive account.

ADrive users can also email files to friends or other recipients directly through ADrive. Once logged in, a user needs to first click the ‘Share’ button to first make the file public, then click ‘Email a Friend’ to enter the recipient’s email address and an optional message. Any shared files can be unshared at anytime.
