  2. 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."

  3. applescript

    I would like to integrate the loading of volumes in Alfred 2. I currently have a workflow that allows me to eject a vol, but I need one to mount a volume. If I could query the names of volumes that are loadable and a way to tell ExpanDrive to mount it would be great.

  5. would ask if it can accept an non valid SSL certificate

    I tried connecting to an openstack swift service through an auth proxy (the service use a modified openstack system and the proxy provides a standard openstack auth) but the proxy doesn't have a valid SSL certificate. Other software ask if they can accept the ssl certificate but expandrive fails with "invalid credentials"

  6. Adding an ExpanDrive folder to "favorites" list in Finder doesn't persist

    On OSX you can add a folder in an ExpanDrive share to your 'favorites' list in Finder, but when the drive disconnects, it is automatically removed from the favorites list.

  7. Sync scheduling

    I am stuck with satellite for ISP. Can you add some scheduling options to keep as much work off peak hours as possible?

  8. Alternate display names in 3.0

    It would be great if the UI for a server's login would allow an alternate server name that would be displayed in the menu bar pull-down. This is important when you connect to the same sever multiple time, but with a different remote path for each. As it is now, only the real server name is displayed multiple times, and you can't tell which one if the correct connection.

  10. Turn off Finder Preview Column for Expandrive files

    I like using Column View and having the Preview column visible most of the time, but it's just too slow on ExpanDrive volumes.

    It would be great if there was an option to turn of that column just for ExpanDrive files (or at least have it auto-return instantly with a simple file icon instead of having to scan the remote resource for the preview).

    Thanks,
    Colin

  12. Would use the settings in .ssh/config

    it would be very useful if ExpanDrive had a setting to enable the use of the parameters configured in the user's ~/.ssh/config file.

    As an example - the SFTP server I need to access is behind a bastion/jump host. I have this configured in .ssh/config using proxy commands. I can scp/sftp fine on the command line, and would love it if ExpanDrive could parse the file and apply the same options.

  14. Please allow duplicating drives to enable creating a new similar drive.

    I just brought expandrive and I'm creating a lot of drives. Creating each from scratch is a pain and would be so much easier if I could use a previously existing one as a template

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.
