  1. use existing ssh-agent if it is available

    On login, I use keychain and ssh-agent on my mac to cache ssh key passphrases for a period of time. It would be nice to see ExpanDrive capable of detecting a running ssh-agent process and attempt using it to authenticate before asking for any ssh key passphrase.

  2. Could handle filenaming errors

    When uploading large numbers of files to Sharepoint, a number have failed due to characters such as % and #, and leading spaces on Macs. It would be good to add an option feature to automatically rename these in some way, or at least to flag them to the user without trying to upload them. These files currently block other uploads and we have to spot this and trace them through the log file, correct, then reconnect the drive, which is a laborious process most users cannot manage themselves without support..

  4. Automatically re-attach all drives after update

    When you update ExpanDrive, you have to press the "play" button on all your drives to get them hooked up again. The program should restore to the previous attachment state after updating, rather than deattaching all of them.

  5. More stability when using kodi on a drive letter mapped by expandrive

    I used both kodi v16 and v17.

    Sometimes connection fails when playing videos.
    Maybe are my videos compressed in mkv (although they're not big, less then 1.5Gb and i'm on a 100Mbit lan) , but sometimes connection fails and i have to manually reconnect the drive letter.

  6. Drive Manager: allow modifying password (and username optionally)

    If I change my password for, say, Dropbox, provide in "Drive Manager | (edit)" a way to re-authenticate. As of now if I change authentication or it expires, I can't find a way to fix except to delete/recreate that drive in Drive Manager

  8. Security policy will not allow SSO because your Box integration reports itself as Mavericks 10.9 instead of Sierra 10.12

    Can't use SSO because whatever Box api or webdav you're using is reporting itself as an older OS version than is supported by enterprise security.

  9. Require password each time you mount

    I have a shared home computer and would like to allow multiple users to mount their one drive account, but with their password required at each login.

  10. Dropbox "New Login" warning email should mention "ExpanDrive" not "Unknown Browser"

    When you log in to Dropbox from within ExpanDrive, you get an email from dropbox.com stating that they detected a logon from "Unknown Browser under Windows 7".

    First, Windows 7 is wrong in my case, and second, it would be nice if it where clear that this is caused by ExpanDrive.

  11. exfs.exe has stopped working

    I have purchased 3 licenses and downloaded the latest version for Windows. I have add 3 drives:
    Amazon Cloud Drive, Amazon S3, Dropbox.

    Unfortunately none of them works. When I try to connect them, got an error message: “Incorrect function”. Following get another popup: “exfs.exe has stopped working”.

    I also sent emails to support@expandrive.com and no one gives update.

  12. Status windows should show the complete file name

    or alternatively the last characters, not the prefix. On large paths cannot see advance of the upload of the files.

  17. Solve NFD (UTF-8-MAC)'s problem

    ExpanDrive can't deal with Japanese file-name correctly.
    I think, this is because OSX uses NFD (UTF-8-MAC) for file-name.
    ex) 'が.txt' is saved as 'か゛.txt' in NFD.
    Some conflict may happens between a list of file-names and actual file-name, when using ExpanDrive.
    I hope it is solved and I want to use Japanese name with ExpanDrive. Thanks.

  20. Companion phone apps

    A clone of the Google Drive app that allows you to aggregate all other cloud providers would be great.

    I'm mobile a lot of the time and often need to access documents and photos. I'd love to cut all the cloud providers' apps down to one.
