Wasabi Explorer for Windows

How Do I Use Wasabi Explorer for Windows with Wasabi?

Wasabi Explorer is a free app that enables you to share files between your Windows host and the Wasabi hot cloud storage service. This app is a version of CloudBerry Explorer from MSP360 that has been customized for use with Wasabi hot cloud storage. Wasabi Explorer provides a user interface to your Wasabi storage account by allowing you to access, move, and manage files across your local storage and your Wasabi storage buckets. 

Wasabi Explorer’s features include:

  • Familiar Windows File Explorer-like user interface
  • Compression and encryption
  • Ability to access multiple Wasabi storage regions
  • Upload rules
  • Header editing
  • Multi-part uploads

*Note: if you want an app that lets you not only share Wasabi files with your Windows host but also mount your Wasabi buckets as a disk volume on your Windows host, you may wish to consider CloudBerry Drive, a paid app from CloudBerry Lab / MSP360. 

In this article we’ll cover the installation instructions for the Windows version of Wasabi Explorer for Cloud Storage. An installation tutorial video is also provided here.

Prerequisites:

  • A valid Wasabi storage account and Wasabi API key set
  • Minimum Windows OS:
    • Windows 7/8/10
    • Windows Server 2008 or higher
  • Minimum System requirements
    • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0,
    • 1.4 GHz 64-bit processor
    • 512 MB RAM, 100 MB minimum disk space, Gigabit (10/100/1000baseT) Ethernet adapter

Installation Instructions:

  1. First, download the Wasabi Explorer install package (Updated Feb 14th 2022 – v6.2.2.10 Windows only)

  2. Once your download is complete, install Wasabi Explorer by following the prompts in the installation package. The workflow will look like the images below:

Rapid Restore

Backup your entire server’s data every night and have access to 5 days of rolling restore points.  Restore your server’s data, OS and configuration any time you need it.

Our Rapid Restore service saves the day during accidental data loss, hardware failures and virus contraction. Simply pick your recovery point and restore the data from that day. 

DDoS Protection

While our competitors may advertise DDoS protection, most often, they are merely implementing easily evaded router rules or simply black-holing targeted servers. They consider this “DDoS protecting their network.” However, neither of these solutions should give comfort to any online business. Should your site be attacked, chances are likely both of these options will end with your server being taken offline. At Hivelocity, we take the responsibility of keeping your servers online very seriously. For this reason, we offer two very serious forms of DDoS protection.

FREE

Every solution we provide includes our Filtering Edge of Network System (FENS). FENS is a series of proprietary systems that proactively monitors and protects the entire Hivelocity Network from most common Denial of Service (DOS) and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks.

$15/MONTH PER SERVER

For an extra fee, you can enhance your server’s protection further with the addition of our Server Defense System. Our Server Defense System sits in front of your server, inspecting inbound data and looking for malicious traffic. The moment an attack is detected, it instantly begins scrubbing each data packet. Hivelocity’s Server Defense System delivers business continuity even in the face of massive and complex attacks.

Our Server Defense System is like adding an alarm and armed guard to your business, alerting you to and destroying anything attempting to jump that fence. Our Server Defense System utilizes internally developed proprietary systems in addition to Corero’s Threat Defense Smartwalls for data packet scrubbing. Each of our data centers is a scrubbing center with Corero Smartwalls on-premise, allowing us to provide on-prem zero-lag data scrubbing.

SSL Certificates

The security of your online commerce and protecting your customers’ data is as important to us as it is to you. When your customers see the green bar, they will know their connection to you is protected. We offer single domain, multi-domain, and wild-card certificates.

We offer industry leading 128-bit encryption certificates, allowing you to conduct e-commerce with complete security. Inspire confidence in your customers by displaying any number of seals and indicators certifying that your site is secure.

Load Balancing

Adding this service to two servers with identical content will allow you to distribute your load evenly across your hardware. Don’t lose business because you couldn’t handle the demand. Load balance and handle your biggest resource spikes with ease.

Firewalls

Stop attacks, prevent unauthorized access, and achieve regulatory compliance. Our Juniper hardware firewalls offload the work so your server never has to consume resources protecting itself from malicious traffic. A single firewall can be used to protect multiple servers.

Cloud Storage

Cloud storage offers users redundancy and easy accessibility, ensuring your data remains secure and readily available. Scale to as much as you need for only a 20¢/GB.

Cloud Storage is distributed and replicated across many servers, protecting your data from hardware failure. Highly scalable, it can handle thousands of client connections via TCP/IP. Connect to your virtual drive with SFTP, FTP, and SSHMount and in the future NFS and AFP. Cloud Storage is based on a stackable design which is upgradeable up to 2TB per instance.
