  3. Please support 'computers' on google drive.

    ExpanDrive supports My drive but does not support Computers. I believe this is an important option to add. We need to access backup files anywhere. Hope you add this function.

  6. send email notification upon upload completion

    When I upload large files I would like to be able to leave my computer and have email notification on the progress of my uploads. I would like to know when my files get uploaded and if everything went smoothly. Also notification if there are any problems. For example internet interruptions or the computer got turned off.

  7. would scroll to the latest entries in the log files instead of requiring me to do it

    can you open logs to latest entries instead of needing to scroll down the text file?

  8. did not allow you mount drives on an already used drive letter in Windows

    Right now if you mount a drive with Expandrive in windows it will take over any letter that is already being used. Maybe when setting up a connection, Expandrive can check and see which letters are available and give you options to use those instead? For instance, when you map a drive in windows, it will give you the first available and not used drive letter to use.

  9. Use oauth requests when mounting S3

    Would it be possible to use OAuth requests when mounting an S3 drive instead of the access and secret keys?

  10. Add icon overlays on all files displayed in the mounted drive

    Adding colors to the files on your mounted drive would help a user know if the files have been synced. Perhaps stoplight colors. Like Red for not uploaded, Yellow for uploading and Green for uploaded.

  11. Better error notification on Expandrive issues. On Expandrive icon.

    I believe there needs to be better error reporting when there are issues. Right now, the only indication that a file has not been uploaded to S3 for instance, is that the red star icon on a Windows PC has a small dot moving to each of the stars points. I believe the users will completely miss this and will never realize that the file might never have gotten uploaded into the S3 bucket. Perhaps there could be a pop up that lists problems?

  12. could limit the amount of repeat API calls to AWS

    right now if there are errors with Expandrive, it just continues to try the last command. For instance, if permissions on an S3 bucket are incorrect, Expandrive will keep trying over and over. The calls it continues to make are being charged back to me. It is a small amount but if a user has an issue and leaves their computer on overnight, Expandrive will keep trying those calls all night and AWS will keep charging me for them. Now multiply the issue on 10000 computers and the charges will become substantial.

  13. Import/Export Settings

    Be able to import/export my connections. This would allow the rebuild of a machine or a new machine setup to be quick.

  15. Was able to look at connection settings while connected to the drive

    It would be nice to be able to look at connection settings without disconnecting the drive.

  19. management

    We've been using Thinkscape's ZeeDrive and while it's not the best it makes it easy to manage Drive Mapping to O365 remotely for our clients.

    Any chance we might see a central Partner/Reseller control panel option in the future of Expandrive?

  20. Add Sync to supported cloud providers

    Sync is very good and respects privacy more than most other providers. It would be great if you supported it.
