Yandex.Disk 2.0 (beta) for OS X
The Yandex.Disk 2.0 experimental web app allows you to upload files to Yandex.Disk, as well as view, download and share them. With this program, files don't take up space on your computer.
You can use Yandex.Disk 2.0 in parallel with the classic version of Yandex.Disk (there is no need to delete the latter). Only the classic version allows you to sync, take screenshots, and auto-upload photos and videos.
Installing the application
Download the app on the Yandex.Disk 2.0 (beta) page. Once the download starts, the page will display instructions on how to launch the file (the file will launch automatically if you're using Safari).
Drag the Yandex.Disk 2.0 app to the Applications folder on your computer.
After you install it, appears in the top menu bar.
Log in to the app
You will be asked to enter your Yandex username and password the first time you launch the app. Until you log in, will display in the menu bar.
If you don't log in right away after installing it, double-click on the app icon in the menu bar.
If you still haven't registered on Yandex, click on Register to sign up. Then enter your username and password in the app.
Upload files to Disk
All you have to do to upload files to Yandex.Disk is copy or move them to the app window. For example, open a folder in the app and drag files into it. You can also click and select files on your computer.
- Upload via drop zone
If you frequently upload new files to Yandex.Disk, drag them into the drop zone that you see on top of the system tray in the lower-right corner of the screen.
To disable the drop zone, go to the Appearance menu and disable the Show drop zone on desktop menu.
You can track the file-uploading process in the Downloads section (which appears after you upload your first file or download a file using the app).
After you upload your files, they will be on the server. You can open your Disk page to make sure that all the files have been uploaded successfully.
View and edit file
To open a file for viewing or to make changes, double-click on it in the file list. The file opens in whatever program opens those type of files by default. If you want to open a file in a different program, enter that program as the default for that file type.
When you edit a file and save it, changes are automatically uploaded to Yandex.Disk. Information about the uploaded file can also be found in the Downloads section (which appears after you upload your first file or download a file using the app).
Download file or folder
Right click on the file or folder. In the menu that appears, select Download to computer.
You can track the file-downloading process in the Downloads section (which appears after you upload or download your first file using the app).
Move files or folders
Moving files and folders is done the same way as on a computer: just drag and drop them to the appropriate place.
To move an item, drag it to the appropriate folder. If you want to move a file to a subfolder, hold your cursor over the folder to open it.
Share files or folders
Select an item and click above the file list.
You can also right-click on an item and choose Copy link in the menu. If you click on an empty field inside the folder, then you can copy the link to that folder.
Delete files or folders
You can delete an item one of the following ways:
- Drag it to the Trash icon in the folder tree on the left.
- Right-click on the item and select Delete in the menu that opens.
To empty the Trash, right-click on the Trash icon and select Empty trash.
Problems with Yandex.Disk 2.0
Files take up space on the computer
This means that, in addition to Yandex.Disk 2.0, you have the classic Yandex.Disk installed with syncing enabled.To solve this problem, either set up customized syncing in the classic program or delete Yandex.Disk.
I can't change the upload folder location
Files are automatically saved in the
/Users/<Username>/.yandex.disk folder when you upload them. Currently, it's not possible to change the upload folder location.
The drop zone displays over all windows
Currently it's not possible to change the drop zone so that it doesn't display on top of all the windows. However, you can disable it. Click the X in the upper-right corner of the drop zone.
