[BETA] Drag-and-Drop between your local PC and your Shadow PC


Drag & Drop is our first real-time file transfer feature.
In this BETA version, you have the possibility to Drag and Drop your file(s) from your Local PC to your Shadow PC.

One or several file(s), of any type and size, can be transferred in a single drag-and-drop operation.
Transfer speed will depend on your connection.
All transfers will end up in your user folder's "Downloads" folder on your Shadow PC's "C:\" drive.
