Megatools allow you to copy individual files as well as entire directory trees to and from the cloud. You can also perform streaming downloads for example to preview videos and audio files, without needing to download the entire file.

You can register account using a ‘megareg’ tool, with the benefit of having true control of your encryption keys.

Megatools are robust and optimized for fast operation – as fast as Mega servers allow. Memory requirements and CPU utilization are kept at minimum.
