  1. 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.

  4. Can you please include SugarSync as a cloud option

    Sync just a few folders or sync all your folders. Simply right click on any folder to add it to SugarSync. The entire folder is continuously backed up in real time providing you access to your folders anytime, anywhere, from any PC, Mac, iOS, or Android device. Start editing a file on your office PC and finish it at home on your home Mac.

  5. Mount specific folders

    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.

  6. 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.

    http://knowledgebase.macrium.com/display/KNOW/Mapped+network+shares+not+visible+in+Macrium+Reflect+when+UAC+is+enabled

    I tried the suggested registry fix, to no avail.

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

    Request option to have Expandrive create a network…

  7. Same Volume name under different user logins

    I run a few logins on my MacBook and would like to be able to have the same volume name for say 'Google Drive' under each login but it is not possible. I would like this feature.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  13. Add support for "backup mode" in Hubic

    Support for Hubic is only partial. The service offers a "backup" mode where files are historized. I would love to browse my backups too. Not sure what the best user interface would be: select a date and see all files as they where on that date, or select a file and see all successive versions of that file (native in Hubic). I guess both would be the best, as it depends on the specific usage:-)

    I am using 5.3.2 for Mac ,when I copy some large files (around 400MB ~ 800MB) from local to Google Drive,ExpanDrive often stop working when copy around 200MB,and then no response any more. I will need to remove the google account from ExpanDrive and add it again to make ExpanDrive work again. Old version seems don't have such problem. Please help to check it. Thanks.

  16. When setting up a new connection and drive letter would it be possible to detect which drive letters are already used?

    When setting up a new connection and drive letter would it be possible to detect which drive letters are already used? I find that I have to go back into Windows explorer and identify which letters are not being used so I can set an unused letter when connecting with Expandrive.

  17. support rsync or bit torrent sync or

    Allow some form of changed file checking for Amazon Shared drive to support rsync, Carbon Copy Cloner, or BitTorrent sync.

    I want to be able to have a job that synchs my local folder with my cloud drive, but that can rapidly find out which files have changed and which have not.

  20. Merge all drives to a single one

    It would be great of ExpanDrive can merge all cloud drives to s single big drive. Internally it should use the one with fastest connection. Let the user decide rules when upload will use another drive depending on space left or the opposite max usage of the drive before switch to another one.
