You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  1. Preferences: make available at all times, not just ExpanDrive startup

    One annoyance with ExpanDrive is that when it's running, there's no access to Preferences... after it starts up if you close that window. While it's running, there are times when I'd like to make a change (like add a new drive), or just now, decided I want it to run at login again. I have to exit and re-enter to do that. I understand some things might be bad ideas to do while running, perhaps like changing something mounted, but those could be disallowed, or a warning that an unmount/remount is needed (or a stop/start if something about, say, caching…

    • Gave us more Feature Request votes

      I realize that the votes make us think carefully about what we need, but as a long-time subscriber, it would be nice if we could have a few more votes now and then. Perhaps paid people could be given more votes every year.

        • show upload/download speeds

          It'd be nice if the app could show the speeds at which downloads and uploads were happening

          • One-Click Offline Sync Option

            Within each of the connections, provide ability to designate that all files should be downloaded and saved locally (to the machine), instead of having to individually select files/folders and set the offline options.

            • windows and google drive : accept stranges characters like /

              Hi,

              i'm still on trial version of expandrive and hesitate to buy it because of some stange behaviours.

              one of them is : if google drive folder as / character, the folder don't show in windows so i can't access the drive! Please make / ok for folders
              (No, i can't change the name because it's rules of my enterprise.)
              Or maybe i missed something ?

              • Ability to prevent syncing of some files based on filters

                This would be useful to prevent local temporary files (such as Office / OpenOffice lock files) from being synced.

                      • Better error notification on Expandrive issues. On Expandrive icon.

                        I believe there needs to be better error reporting when there are issues. Right now, the only indication that a file has not been uploaded to S3 for instance, is that the red star icon on a Windows PC has a small dot moving to each of the stars points. I believe the users will completely miss this and will never realize that the file might never have gotten uploaded into the S3 bucket. Perhaps there could be a pop up that lists problems?

                          • Please support 'computers' on google drive.

                            ExpanDrive supports My drive but does not support Computers. I believe this is an important option to add. We need to access backup files anywhere. Hope you add this function.

                              When you have shared computer and few people are working on it. You may need to mount your private secure area (documents, photos etc). You better have possibility to protect this mounting by password

                                    When I upload large files I would like to be able to leave my computer and have email notification on the progress of my uploads. I would like to know when my files get uploaded and if everything went smoothly. Also notification if there are any problems. For example internet interruptions or the computer got turned off.

                                      • did not allow you mount drives on an already used drive letter in Windows

                                        Right now if you mount a drive with Expandrive in windows it will take over any letter that is already being used. Maybe when setting up a connection, Expandrive can check and see which letters are available and give you options to use those instead? For instance, when you map a drive in windows, it will give you the first available and not used drive letter to use.

                                        • Use oauth requests when mounting S3

                                          Would it be possible to use OAuth requests when mounting an S3 drive instead of the access and secret keys?
