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.

I would love if ExpanDrive ...

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:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Fish protocol support

    Since fish is kind of faster and more stable than sftp, it would be nice to be able to use fish instead of sftp.
    Sftp gets to slow and buggy sometimes, and it kills my file managers.

    • Cloud storage/sync for configured drives

      I want some way of storing configured drives online, such than when I've setup 10 drives on machine A, I can simply install ExpandDrive on machine B, C and D and have access to the same drives.

      Least effort method: let me configure my drives via a text file (perhaps encrypted to protect passwords), make the path configurable and accept URLs.

      • Have Windows Zip File Which Requires No Installation

        I'd like to use ExpandDrive on office machine which prevents installation. Please provide fully functional zip file which does not require any installation. It should work pretty much like Mac version which does not require any installation.

        Thank you.

          • Openstack Swift Containers as folders

            I'd love to see Openstack Swift Containers show as folders and subfolders, and not on a flat view

              • Amazon CloudFront invalidation

                Would be great if you could invalidate folder or file in Amazon CloudFront.

                • Had a denser layout

                  The Drives panel wastes a lot of space with huge amounts of area around controls and oversized text entry boxes. It looks more like it was made for iPad than Mac. It's not a big deal, but I wish it took up less space and used the space more efficiently.

                  • Be able to access Azure storage.

                    It would be awesome if you were the sole solution to Azure access on the Mac. SME sucks.

                    • Remember some Default Settings for new drive profiles

                      By default, the drive type and authentication methods are pre-selected with SFTP/Password regardless of either my last created drive or my preference for a given connection type.
