I have a Win7 Pro Dell Vostro laptop with hard drive showing 249Gb of 450Gb free.
It also shows a Nuance Cloud drive showing 249Gb of 450Gb free.
What is the Nuance Cloud drive?


It is the online storage / cloud program Nuance or Dropbox, etc.. Do you use any program in order to sync your data online / (to the cloud / internet)?

Please let me know. Thank you.

I have around 2Gb in Dropbox, but I've never subscribed or heard of Nuance.

Please click on Start -> Control Panel -> Programs / Programs and Features, and uninstall any Nuance program, if any, there. Thank you.

Thanks for your advice.

Yes, it is there (Nuance Cloud Connector / Nuance Paper Port 14 / Nuance PDF Viewer Plus) but I don't see the point of uninstalling.

If it offers cloud storage, then that's useful. I just don't understand why it's there.

I'll check if there is any messages from Nuance, but I've no memory of installing it.

You're welcome. It could come built-in with your computer, or came with a printer's CD disk. More information about Nuance Cloud:

OK. If you have any further question, please let me know. Thank you,
