  1. 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.

              • 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.

                    • 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.

                              Mounting Amazon drive is useful but I work with a folder hierarchy where I am down 4-6 levels before I get to a couple of my active projects. I'd like to map each project folder instead of the root.

                              • Network drive with elevated privileges, for Macrium Reflect support

                                I would like to create and update images of my Windows partition using Macrium Reflect, but the Expandrive mapped Amazon cloud drive is not visible to Macrium reflect as a selectable destination. Other network drives such as another PC on my home network are selectable.

                                According to their knowledge base the issue may occur ir a network drive is created using standard rather than administrative privileges, since Macrium requires administrative/elevate privileges.

                                I tried the suggested registry fix, to no avail.

                                I have Windows 10 64 bit, latest build, UAC is disabled.

                                  • Password to start ExpanDrive.

                                    Because now ExpanDrive give very simple access to our clouds and in some situations it can be dangerous.
                                    It will be very helpful to have possible to use password to start ExpanDrive (if someone need it of course; as possibility in settings).
                                    This ONE password will give us safe access to ExpanDrive with our all clouds.

                                    • Sync between c and z drive (sass)

                                      I would love to be able to sync a folder in my C drive to a folder in the Z drive that I set up with ExpanDrive.

                                      My case: I have some local files that compile sass to css. When I try to move them to my server, I run into permissions issues.

                                      ExpanDrive is great for directly editing the html, php, or js on my dev server. However for Sass, I have to manually copy the files between Win folders, after every edit.

                                      • Detect a broken connection

                                        At least with SFTP (which I primarily use) access, ExpanDrive doesn't realize when a connection is broken. My example is an IP address change (which numerous providers force upon me every 24 hours). After the address changed, the original connection is broken, but ExpanDrive doesn't recognize this and still shows "connected".

                                        Furthermore, when I try to access a file on an SFTP drive letter after the connection broke, I just get an access error. ExpanDrive does not try to re-establish the connection itself, I always have to manually disconnect and reconnect for each drive letter, which is very annoying.

                                        • option to stop auto minimize to tray

                                          Its really annoying that clicking the system tray icon brings up the application like a pop-up. There really needs to be an option to have it function like a normal application and stay visible until I close/dismiss/minimize it.
