ExpanDrive Feature Requests

We’re looking for some feedback on what users want to see from ExpanDrive. Add an idea, or vote on one already listed.

  1. Clear cache

    Using v 7.2.2., current version as of August 2019, ExpanDrive cache under C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\ExpanDrive is taking up 58 GIG on my SSD drive. There are 4 subfolders underneath for 4 drives, so that's about 15 GIG per drive I connect to. Is it safe to delete this cache? The Expandrive App is showing all transfer operations completed.

  2. There was a limit that could be set on the local cache folder (Windows)

    Moving files (CTRL+X, CTRL+V) through the Windows Explorer from one ExpanDrive share (OneDrive) to another (Webdav).

    The local cache fills up to over 30GB.

  5. 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.

  7. 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).

  9. Unidirectional Upload/Sync

    I'd really like to be able to use ExpanDrive the way I use Yummy FTP, to archive off photos and music and movies to my NAS from my laptop. Unidirectional sync allows me to (for instance) sync my laptop's music folder with the music folder on my NAS that my Subsonic/Sonos/iTunes draw from. When I download some new music to my laptop, it gets automatically synced up to the server. When I delete it from my laptop (to save space) it's retained on the server.

  11. showed more information about the drive on the login screen

    Expandrive forgets the login or needs me to re-login in for a drive and shows a screen asking for credentials for box.com or google drive. The problem is I have about 5 accounts of each and I do not know know which one Expandrive needs me to re-credential (or why for that matter).

    Would be great if the volume name I entered to distinguish them was used on the login screen.

  12. Synchronise user specified directories between mounted drives

    I connect to different servers, I want that when I do changes to my WORK directory it propagates to other drives directories that I have designated to synchronise with my WORK directory.

    So, in practice,

    I would assign an existing directory (i.e. ORIGIN) at one of my drives. And select another drive where I would replicate (copy) the directory at DESTINY, but with the special feature that any future change I do in ORIGIN will be replicated in DESTINY, and vice versa, any future change will be replicated in ORIGIN if I change/add/delete any file in DESTINY.

    Even more interesting…

  13. Supports Enterprise Deployment for multi-user

    Installation of the product to a location on the system accessed by all users of the system eg within (c:\Program Files\ExpanDrive) will alow better distribution of the software within an enterprise environment. However user-specific data i.e. Credentials created and saved within %appdata%\ExpanDrive
    Also more clarity around the functionality of exinstall.exe which cannot be launched by standard user due to UAC problem.

  14. If authentication is needed, provide a way of knowing which instance

    As an example, I have two instances of Box. If ExpanDrive pops up that a login is needed, I have no way of knowing if it's my "personal-Box" or "work-Box." Please provide some way of identifying which drive is popping up its need for authentication.

  15. 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.

  16. 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…

  18. 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.

  19. 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.
