  1. invalid references in your code

    I'm seeing the following entries in the log, it looks like it might be a reference to a developer's directory.

  5. would honor the server side umask

    It seems expandrive is not honoring the umask set on the server. This basically means i cannot explicitly force files to be read/writeable for a group, so files can be shared as easily.

    It would be great if expandrive would honor those umask so we can use it to connect to a shared document server.

  6. came my way earlier.

    ExpanDrive is f**king perfect. I've tried loads of programs that are meant to mount a remote drive but this one actually does it properly. I can now easily sync files while working in Sublime. Thanks a lot, will definitely buy this. :)

  9. Client side encryption

    I would love Strongsync if the files were encrypted before they were stored on the server, which would necessarily have to happen on the client.

    This would be the killer feature that would make it better than Dropbox.

  10. Forbidden characters in nickname

    following the usual SSH style I used the nickname "some.server:/path", but since ":" and "/" are forbidden in file names, mounting failed silently.

    The app should have noticed that earlier and checked if the nickname is a valid filename when trying to enter it in the first place.

  12. Include iCloud

    An application called Cloud Mate accomplishes this using OSXFUSE <http://tidbits.com/article/13679>. Thanks for reading!

  14. An iOS app for Strongsync

    Strongsync is awesome, but since it uses a non-native format, I can't access the files on a mobile device. (Auto-)Uploading and viewing photos would be ideal, however viewing text files and PDF would be all that is really necessary.

  15. strongsync - Folder sync location Sync

    Allow to change the default sync folder, or even better, allow for multiple locations to sync from.

  17. Explained a little bit about what StrongSync does

    In particular, can it move files and folders in S3? Make new folders, rename files, etc? Got any videos?

    Thanks

  18. Pause synchronization

    Often, I use WiFI at coffee shops and other similar locations. I'm not too concerned about the security (SSH is tried and true), but slowing down the already slow coffee shop wifi with my sync engine is more than a little annoying.

  19. Add support for Joyent Manta Storage Service

    Joyent provide a quite interesting Storage service (http://www.joyent.com/products/manta) that would be very convenient to be easily accessible both with ExpanDrive or StrongSync.

  20. strong sync allow to

    Would be great if strong sync would allow for more options, like where to sync from (for example, in my case, the majority of my files are on a secondary drive, because the smaller one is SSD ...).

    Symbolik links support can also provide a partial solution for this.
