  1. Client based transparent file encryption

    Optional transparent encryption of files when read/write occurs to connected storage.

    I'd really like to see this capability and would purchase several licenses for enterprise users.

    Expandrive and Strongsync cover transport encryption but we also need to ensure the endpoint is encrypted and not by the endpoint itself.

  4. Be able to access Azure storage.

    It would be awesome if you were the sole solution to Azure access on the Mac. SME sucks.

  5. Add Synology Cloud Station support and attract a whole new user base.

    There are thousands of potential new Expandrive users out there if only they could connect to Synology's Cloud Station. It would help existing Expandrive users too I'm quite positive. Well...let the votes tell...

  6. show changes in real time

    ExpanDrive 4 seems to be more aggressive in caching than ExpanDrive 3, at least for SFTP connections.

    I frequently mount a disk from a local VM (created with VirtualBox). When I create or delete a file or directory on the ExpanDrive mounted disk, this change is immediately visible on the remote location.

    When I create or delete a file or directory on the VM (on the 'remote' location), ideally I also want this change would immediately be shown in the ExpanDrive mounted disk. This is not the case.

    Here is the behaviour I've experienced:
    * With ExpanDrive 3 the change…

  8. Ability to change the location of the local cache directory for file uploads...

    Currently if I copy over 500GB of data from my local storage server to OneDrive, the SSD on my local system fills up with the cache of files waiting to be uploaded. It would be nice if I could set the location of that cache to be another drive/directory.

  9. Cloud storage/sync for configured drives

    I want some way of storing configured drives online, such than when I've setup 10 drives on machine A, I can simply install ExpandDrive on machine B, C and D and have access to the same drives.

    Least effort method: let me configure my drives via a text file (perhaps encrypted to protect passwords), make the path configurable and accept URLs.

  10. Support Amazon Glacier

    It would be great if ExpanDrive would work as an Amazon Glacier client. Any possibility of that?

  11. Mount server as \\ExpanDrive\nickname UNC Path Only, No Drive Letter

    I noticed that the drives are network drives connected to \\ExpanDrive\nickname.
    It would be nice in some situations to just mount as \\ExpanDrive\nickname but not create a drive letter.
    Then you could use Windows 7+ Libraries with just the UNC path and not need a drive displayed in Computer.
    Also might be other use cases where you want to access a server via UNC path but not have a drive in Computer.

  12. Integrate Moint Points under Windows7 - instead of Drive letter

    If you have several USB-Sticks, Google Drives and WebDav Share connected, you are running out of Drive Letters. So it would be a real good idea to use a Directory as an Mount Point - instead of Drive Letters ...

  16. Skip files that fail

    Mostly using oneDrive it gets stuck while transferring files.

    This is ofc an error by itself, but i blame microsoft for this. however, instead of just keep trying to upload this file. skip and go to the next one, and then maybe go back and try again later. This way i don't have to babysit it when i have to upload bit amounts of data.

    Maybe also, in relation. make a nice interface to handle thees errors, because mostly the files it cannot transfer i don't need anyway and it's tedious to go to the log to figure out which…

  17. Service-specific drive icons

    A Google icon for Google Drive, a Box icon for a Box drive, etc. Would make them easier to recognize for me.

  18. Support backup systems such as Backblaze, CrashPlan etc.

    Currently backup systems can't backup drives mounted through Expandrive it seems. This is a deal breaker for me. Cloud storage is not backup, bor storage. I need a backup of the cloud disk for it to be truely useful.

  19. Work with Carbon Copy Cloner scheduled tasks

    Would love to use ExpanDrive with Carbon Copy Cloner to schedule backups to S3. Currently it won't work with CCC's scheduled tasks because "CCC scheduled tasks run under the System Administrator account, and the contents of the source or destination filesystem are not accessible to that user."
