The docs do say "The second option is to embed the Google Drive media in your content directly. In this case, the media will be loaded from Google Drive, not from your server.", but I have been told this is not how it functions.

Ready to buy but need to know if this is how it can work.
Thanks.

Hi,

Thanks for contacting us here about this extension.

If you upload files to Google Drive folders, then your files will be actually stored at the cloud server.
The link of those could be public or private links following your settings. For more information:

Hope it helps!

I have the same question. Can I upload a file using the WP Media Folder plugin, and have the file only exist in the cloud? I have thousands of .pdf files that I want to make available through a link on a post, but not have that file stored directly in the WordPress uploads folder.

Please advise...

Hi iwebcrafter,

If you want to store what you upload to the Media library on a cloud server, you can use Amazon S3.
Files will be upload to S3 automatically and offload to your server site.

Please go to our AWS integration page and documentation for more information:
