        • 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.

            It would be nice to see this on Linux too as it is such a helpful tool to have.

            • On the mac being able to mount SMB drives and AFP drives as well

              I would like to use expandrive for all my mounts. Now I find myself switching between expandrive and the finder to mount my volumes.

                  • Be able to access Azure storage.

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

                          • 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.

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

                              • 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:

                                  • Limit cache size on OS X (~/Library/Application Support/ExpanDrive

                                    I am very disappointed by the way ExpanDrive caches files that are being uploaded.

                                    I wanted to upload multiple large files and ExpanDrive just moved it to ~/Library/Application Support/ExpanDriv, filled my system drive and made my Mac unusable. And uploaded it from there until system became unusable.

                                    Files are being uploaded from copy in ~/Library folder made by ExpanDrive instead from original file location (big drive on my mac, not system SSD).

                                    There should be an option for disabling or limiting cache size. Things like folder structure should be cached but complete files no.

                                    I was expecting this kind of…

                                    • 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 ...

                                        I would like to have the ability to connect a Bitcasa.com drive. Bitcasa recently opened its deliver API program.

                                          I just brought expandrive and I'm creating a lot of drives. Creating each from scratch is a pain and would be so much easier if I could use a previously existing one as a template
