  3. Prevent ExpanDrive from stealing focus when updates are needed (OSX)

    As of 6.0.15, when the macOS version of ExpanDrive needs an update, it opens its menu and steals focus from the current window. It should be able to alert the user without stealing focus, since it always seems to pop up its window while I am in the middle of typing something which is very annoying.

    Current behavior: automatic update notifications open the window and steal focus

    Desired behavior: automatic update notifications are presented as system notifications that, when clicked, open the ExpanDrive window and/or start the update process

  4. could use offline storage for select folders

    It would be great if expandrive could selectively sync folders from online to offline locations. Similar to how Google and One Drive natively work.

  5. Fixed mount point

    Its quite frustrating to restart my computer to find applications which are trying to access folders inside dropbox to stop working because expandrive has mounted dropbox under a different mount point, now everything which is written to the old mountpoint doesnt sync and expandrive doesnt tell me what has happened, so often I find out a week later that nothing on dropbox is sync'd because its not even saving into the right location.

    if expandrive cannot mount at the place that I ask it to, then it should raise an error for me to investigate, not automatically fix the problem,…

  6. Better fallback options when file names fail (special characters, too long, etc).

    Fallback options when file names are too long or have special characters
    (1) Truncate to longest possible length
    (2) Map bad characters to alternate characters
    (3) Make zip file that contains the errant file name or directory and copy that instead
    (4) At a minimum, generate a user-friendly exception list/log of problematic files that contains the entire path so that they can be manually transferred.

  7. Support Windows 10 Creators Update

    ExpanDrive v6.0.13 fails upon opening network drives, regardless of their types (tested with Amazon Cloud Drive and SFTP drives)

    https://gyazo.com/3082c0e5a99ef0d0af67fdebc07c81bf

    ExpanDrive v5.x works fine though.

    The log follows:

  9. Follow links to directories in SFTP drive

    For ExpanDrive 6 on macOS Sierra, when double-clicking a link to a directory on a remote Linux server, the link doesn't resolve and open the directory to which it links. Instead, it shows as a unix executable and when double-clicked it opens a terminal window that immediately exits.

    It should instead follow the link and open the remote directory.

  14. ...wouldn't steal focus from my active window when I open its menu (macOS)

    In macOS, when I click on the menu, ExpanDrive greys out the window I was working in. When I close the ExpanDrive menu, focus doesn't return to my work, so to continue typing, I have to click in the window again.

    Other menu utilities like iStat Menus, Caffeine, 1Password, and Pulse Secure VPN do not change my window focus when I open them, and I wish ExpanDrive didn't either.

  20. Support TiVo DVRS

    I'd love to be able to treat my TiVos as a drive, and simply copy (or sync) recordings to my PC/Mac.

    There are open source projects that have filled the void left by the demise of TiVo's 'TiVo-To-Go' PC software. But they lack the ease of use that Expandrive could offer.
