Thank you. So is there kind of "online" Obi or how does it work?

Dear Marvoice,

Obi is destop based tool. If the cloud storage integrates well with windows file explorer then Obi can pick up file path as usual. Obi does not do anything special for cloud storage. So, you need to check how well the your cloud integrates with windows file explorer.

Thank you. I still use windows xp, just for the record. What cloud storage integrates well with windows file explorer by your experiences?

Hello Marvoice,

We have checked cloud storage services like DropBox,Google Drive and One Drive on Windows 7 and 10.
They all integrate well with windows file explorer.
You can try with windows XP.

Thank you. Can you tell me what would be the exact procedure?

Hello,

You can download and install any of the cloud storage services on your system.
Thereafter you can upload your project on the server.
Hope it helps.
