  1. a Queue

    This really needs a Queue screen with ability to Manage the Queue with Start/Stop/Resume the Queue.

    instead of having to remove the whole drive and add it again to clear the upload queue.

      • Authentication using AWS AssumeRole for S3

        Amazon AssumeRole is a common way of providing access this days to S3 buckets. This means to connect to S3, it needs more than just SecretKey and AccessKey. A role is configured too, and behind scene it gets a STS token to access the resources (there is actually a lot more details going on behind).

              • 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.

                • 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...

                  • 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.

                        • Open Google Docs on a mounted Google Drive

                          - Mount a Google Drive (mine is on Google Apps)
                          Note that Google docs show up as ".webloc" files
                          - Double-click a Google Doc .webloc file

                          Expected Result:
                          Google Doc opens in the default web browser.

                          Actual Result:
                          File opens as a "file://" link and just redisplays the mounted Google Drive folder in the Finder.

                            • 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:

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

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