  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Strongsync support for symbolically linked folders

    Strongsync support for symlinked folders would place it a huge cut above other solutions. Dropbox seems to be the only syncing software that handles this gracefully. BitTorrent Sync is cool, but doesn't provide this functionality and neither does ownCloud.

    I greatly Strongsync's your interface and ease of setup. Adding this would allow it to completely replace Dropbox for me!

  5. Strongsync had partial replication/LRU policy

    I would buy Strongsync in a heartbeat if it supported partial replication with an LRU policy. Dropbox can do partial replication, but you need to tell it which files/folders should/should not be synced. I don't see why I should have to bother with this.

    Combined with SFTP this would enable the following (awesome) scenario: I could stick a squillion-o-byte hard disk on my machine at home, and make this available via SFTP. Then, on my Macbook Air (which has a tiiiiiny SSD), I could then use this disk via Strongsync as if I had a squillion-o-byte disk on the Air.…

  6. strongsync linux support

    I have an expandrive license I never use, but I a Ubuntu version of strongsync would be extremely useful.

    Please update when this is available.

  8. 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 ...

  15. Have 3.x maintain connections like 2.x for lighting fast navigationd and saving.

    I use expandrive to connect to virtual machines. Expan drive 3.x is very slow to work with because it drops connections after a few seconds, resulting in having to reconnect if I take a second to navigate folders.

    If I am editing a file, it results in a delayed saving process every time I edit a file... and this really affects my workflow.

    I've had to roll back to your 2.x version

  16. Add Gluster!

    http://www.gluster.org/ is a FUSE based distributed file system. Unfortunately the gluster community is waiting for stable windows version of FUSE. If you implemented Expan Drive for Gluster it would be heavily used on amazon to provide access to distributed file systems from windows servers.

  17. Autoconnect/automount support

    Allow me to specify settings for a /Volumes/auto or other volume, where the next directory is the name of the ssh server.

    This would greatly simplify working with large numbers of remote hosts!

    (I was told this was being considered for 3.x, but I guess I didn't keep asking often enough!) :)

  20. Provides a Command Line Option

    I use ExpanDrive quite often and love it. However, there are times when I can only access my Mac via ssh and not VNC. It would help greatly if ExpanDrive provides a command line tool. I love to have the ability to connect/disconnect from a preconfigured drive.
