    • Don't reset content-type to binary/octet-stream when saving files to S3.

      I host static websites on S3 and I'd love to be able to edit my files via ExpanDrive. Right now when I have a file set with a content-type of text/html and I edit it via ExpanDrive, the content-type value is changed to binary/octet-stream which breaks my website until I go into the AWS console and change it back.

      • Support Amazon Glacier

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

          • Does expandrive have updating files notification with progress bar?

            Does expandrive have updating files notification with progress bar? That the only reason i keep using WebDrive(SRT). Everytime i update a file and save, webdrive shows me a notification with saving progress.

            • bluetooth support

              It would be nice to have (if possible) a way to map a drive letter to a bluetooth enabled device.

              • Sorting drives by name!

                If you have more drives than you can display on one "page" you have problem to find right drive... because list is now sorted by drive creation (time) which is in my opinion stupid. Thank your for solving this problem.

                • bug WebDAV

                  On WebDAV drives, remaining disk space shows wrong size. It should be the user quota size.

                  • Had a minimize function

                    It would be nice if ExpanDrive had a minimize function that included a minimize button and the ability to be minimized on startup.
                    It's annoying to have ExpanDrive show up as a regular window on startup.

                    • Have a SSH shell option

                      Once I can get any version 3 working, I would like to see a SSH shell option - so you can login into the server under (sftp) password details to a shell session.. putty is great, but alas doesn't support saved passwords like expandrive.

                      • ServiceNet

                        I'm a Racker and got a free serial number to test ED3 and give feedback. if you can introduce Service Net for the customer who has Rackspace cloud servers, they will benefit from free bandwidth charges and also higher throughput for uploading data to cloud files.
                        Thanks,
                        Mehran Alavi

                        • Additional options on 'expand' command line (synchronous and no finder window opening)

                          I use the expand command for a lot of automated build delivery processes and the opening of the finder windows leaves me with a very cluttered finder. It would be nice to have an option to turn that off. Also rather then having to build in some sleep() and checks for mounting to complete before preceding it would be nice to have an option for the mount and unmount to happen synchronously

                          • ExpanDrive 3 FTP Connections Fail on Win7 64 bit.

                            I can't get FTP connections to work on ExpanDrive 3. I've tried multiple unrelated servers. I've emailed support at multiple addresses over the last 45 days. I even made a video demonstration of the issues. I've received not one response, though the upgrade released since did fix one problem. Has anyone else had problems with straight FTP connections? I can use 1.8.4 for all the other connections, but some poor clients only have FTP connections.

                                  • Option to specify a connection timeout (for slower connections)

                                    When abroad I'm getting a connection timeout using SFTP.

                                    Using SSH (on the terminal) I can connect. Takes some time, but after a connection has been established everything works as normal.

                                    Sadly enough ExpanDrive is not usable for me at the moment. :-(

                                    • Mount server as \\ExpanDrive\nickname UNC Path Only, No Drive Letter

                                      I noticed that the drives are network drives connected to \\ExpanDrive\nickname.
                                      It would be nice in some situations to just mount as \\ExpanDrive\nickname but not create a drive letter.
                                      Then you could use Windows 7+ Libraries with just the UNC path and not need a drive displayed in Computer.
                                      Also might be other use cases where you want to access a server via UNC path but not have a drive in Computer.

                                        • Work with Carbon Copy Cloner scheduled tasks

                                          Would love to use ExpanDrive with Carbon Copy Cloner to schedule backups to S3. Currently it won't work with CCC's scheduled tasks because "CCC scheduled tasks run under the System Administrator account, and the contents of the source or destination filesystem are not accessible to that user."
