On 16.11.2019 Amazon discontinued access from Koofr to Amazon Drive API. Unfortunately this is not a decision made by Koofr. Amazon decided to no longer allow third-party applications access to their service. This means many services, including Koofr can no longer connect to Amazon Drive. All other external cloud connections still work and will remain part of the Koofr service. You can read more about it here.
