In this days everything seems to be on a cloud. Photos, video, emails, and any other kind of files they all seem to be on a cloud for ease of search. One of the best examples of a hugely popular cloud service that is virtually unknown in the United States is Baidu Yun Pan. Using Cloud services has become a convenient way in which a growing number of people in both store and have quick access to their files from all kinds of different devices.
There are many different cloud services available, some of them be more popular in certain world regions and others been virtually unknown in other parts of the world.
Perhaps one of the reasons why is this service is not that well known in the United States is because the only language they use is Chinese (Mandarin, actually). This limits of course it’s potential in English speaking countries like the United States or comment really anywhere in the west or even in other parts of the world where Chinese is not widely spoken. So far, it’s popularity has been limited to the People’s Republic of China. Likely for its developers of course a lot of potential.
If you are reading this article who would assume that you either are able to read Chinese or that you have found a way of going around this difficulty.
What Is Baidu Yun Pan?
Before we go into how to download Baidu in different platforms, let’s talk a little bit more about what it actually is. We have already said that is a cloud service but that does not say too much about it.
- Apart from its cloud service, Baidu also offers file sharing, and other software services with clients.
- What really puts Baidu above its competition is that Baidu is great at allowing files to be synchronized in an automatic fashion once files are created.
- There is no way for us to know it but we have a strong suspicion that this may be the main reason why you would be interested in this platform.
Baidu was created only four years ago, back in 2012. Initially, however, it was known as Baidu Wang Pan, but he has been known with its current name of Baidu Cloud since it was rebranded later that same year.
Today, the biggest upgrade of the service has been into thousand 13 when the company decided to begin offering 2 TB (terabytes) A free storage space to all its users. This move was allegedly part of her so called cloud storage war in China that involved several players, among them Baidu.
How to Download Baidu Yun Pan?
So, as long as you are able to read Mandarin Chinese should be able to download Baidu on a whole range of different devices including the following:
In this section of the article we will show you exactly what you need to do in order to download Biadu Yun Pan for each and every one of these devices.
We will start with Windows computers. Downloading this cloud service to any windows computer could not be any easier. But there is something that you will need to know first. It is all well and good to head over to the Baidu cloud website and simply click on the link to download the cloud for a Windows computer. However, when it comes to using the cloud drive you may drive into certain problems if you have not made certain provisions before hand.
Having this cloud Drive in itself is not enough. Very often if you are just downloading small files from it you should not experienced any trouble at all. It is when you try to download relatively large files, however, that you might run into trouble. Anything that is at least 2 GB (gigabytes) or more can normally cost trouble when you are trying to download it. There is, likely, a fairly straightforward solution to this problem. If you intend to download large files from Baidu you will need to download something else before. There is a piece of software that you will need. This software is known as Baidu Yun Guanajia.
- The sole purpose of this software is to enable the download of large files from Baidu.
- If you attempt to download any large files without this additional piece of software, you may find yourself wasting a lot of time.
- What would typically happen is that the download will initiate is normal (i.e., you probably will not notice anything wrong and they are four will probably not think you need to do anything else).
However, you should soon find out that you’re down there get interrupted anytime, which could mean actually while it has been going on for a real long time. The main problem is, of course, that if you would like to resume downloading the file that caused the problem you will find that it is actually not possible. Instead, you will need to begin again. This means that all the time that was consumed downloading has been lost because you can only download the whole thing or nothing gets downloaded.
And it can actually get a lot worse, because constantly receive mean downloads can also result in losing considerable amount of bandwith.
The solution to all these potential problems is simple: download Baidu Yun Guanji.
How To Download & Use Baidu
What follows are instructions on how to create a Baidu Yun Pan account, and download Baidu Yun Guanji as part of the same operation. That way you will not only be able to use the cloud service but will also be able to download large files from it, which is what most people sooner or later use cloud services for. There is, however, and extremely simple solution that works around the need of downloading any additional software. In the section of the article we will cover both of them.
This does not mean that we endorse either one of them (or both of them). We are just giving you information on what your options are. The, let’s call it workaround solution, it’s extremely simple but it is almost impossible to do it unless you know exactly what to do. The advantage of the workaround solution is that it does not involve downloading any additional software whatsoever. As you will see a little bit later on in this article, the alternative solution does not only not require you to download any software but it is also a solution that you can carry out from your Internet web browser.
To start with, you will need to visit the official website: pan.baidu.com and download the necessary software following the on-screen instructions.
Then, you will need to register to Baidu. This involves the usual steps in registering for anything online; there is nothing to extraordinary about this. The important thing to know is that just by registering you get 2 TB of free storage on the cloud service.
Once you start using this cloud service and you need to download large files you can follow these simple steps to do so:
- Head over to Baidu and login using your details (you need to have been registered before hand, of course).
- Then open the URL of the large file that you are intending to download.
- Next you will need to save that file by clicking or tapping on the blue button (safe to cloud storage).
- Once you have saved the large file you will need to head over to the homepage of the Baidu Yun Pan.
- You should notice that the URL contains the word “home“. You should replace this by the term “wap”.
- Then you should choose the large file that you want to download.
- Press the blue button (Download).
If you follow with these very simple seven steps you will be able to download even large files using Baidu Yun Pan without having to install any additional software. It is, of course, up to you whether you would prefer to download any additional software or use this method instead.
We do not necessarily recommend one method over the other. So you will have to think about it and what would be best for you. Some people prefer not to download an extra software because of storage issues. In this day and age it’s very easy to run out of space or make your computer work slower than it should if you have used up too much storage with software. This problem can be very easily solved if you either uninstall or simply do not install any unnecessary software. So there are many people who only download and install software that is absolutely necessary to their computers.
