Do you / will you support Amazon Cloud Drive as a storage destination?

N.B. This question is about Amazon Cloud Drive, not about Amazon AWS S3UpdraftPlus has supported sending backups to Amazon S3 for several years.

No, UpdraftPlus does not support Amazon Cloud Drive, and we have no plans to support it. Amazon are pitching this as a storage solution for media, particularly photos. They have not made any developer documentation or development toolkits available for arbitrary storage. All their signals are that they wish things like website backups to be stored in S3, for which they have abundant developer support. As such, to try to support Cloud Drive would be trying to fight uphill, and past experiences of supporting storage backends that the vendor was lukewarm about have not been positive. Therefore, we will not be doing it.
