Wasabi Client doesn't do everything I need it to do - what are my options?

Wasabi Client was built as a free, simple Mac & Windows Desktop app for Wasabi hot cloud storage customers.    Wasabi Client was not built to directly compete with the hundreds of other free and paid storage applications that are available today.   We sometimes get asked 'Wasabi Client doesn't do everything I need it to do - what are my options?'   This article is provided as a means of trying to answer that question.

Please be aware that all of these other app options require some knowledge of how to set up S3-style storage clients.  By this we mean you should be comfortable working with the S3-style storage buckets and API keys.       Info on how to set up any S3-style storage client that has been certified by Wasabi (over 100) can be found in this section of our knowledge base.  

Below are some suggestions of other S3 client apps for a range of use cases: 

  1. We have recently (April 2019) released our Wasabi Explorer for Windows.
