  1. can work with Davros & Sandstorm

    Hi there! First of all, thanks for making this excellent WebDAV client. ExpanDrive works great with ownCloud.

    Recently, I'm testing a self-hosted WebDAV server called Davros [1] which runs on the Sandstorm web app platform [2]. The idea that new WebDAV shares can be created in a few clicks is very exciting.

    Unfortunately, I couldn't get ExpanDrive to connect to Davros. Logs indicate an exception was raised in _ssl.c [3]

        • respected tenant name in openstack settings

          Right now it appears to always use AUTH_<username> as the tenant, instead of respecting the tenant explicitly listed in settings. It also gives no errors on invalid credentials.

            • Ability to create a connection with the "expan" command line

              I frequently use this for sshfs connections. It would be really nice to be able to have a syntax like:

              expan create ssh servername.domain

              • Is dropbox/google-drive likely to make expandrive break in the near future? (deliberately or not?)

                Please setup an easily found FAQ that includes questions like these:

                Is dropbox/google-drive likely to make expandrive break in the near future? (deliberately or not?) Is there any reason they might not like what expandrive is doing?

                What is your relationship, if any, with Google, Dropbox, etc?

                If none, then what happens if/when google/dropbox start blocking apps like expandrive from accessing server space? Have you asked for or ever gotten any assurances from Dropbox, Google-drive and others that they are ok with what exandrive is doing?

                For example, Dropbox in the past has repeatedly blocked various apps that let two…

                  • Amazon Cloud Drive support files naming in other language

                    People from different country would naming their directories or files in their native language. For example, I upload some files in Traditional Chinese, and the Amazon's web management shows those files correctly, however, those files are not shown when mount cloud drive with ExpanDrive. which is a very big issue for me to consider buy an official license. ( Still try and look any possible 3rd part solution with ACD )

                    • sync folders to expanDrive Locations regularly

                      I'd love it if I could sync files off my mac to the ExpanDrive folder so that unlike dropbox or google drive they don't stay on my machine and take up double the space but they still regularly keep in sync. I tried using rsync and it thinks all the files are new when they aren't the meta data doesn't get downloaded the whole file has to download. I think meta data should remain local and then the speed of Expan Drive would also improve.

                      • Adopt the concept of an enterprise password

                        Here at work we have to change our password every 6 months, and when that time comes I have to go into ExpanDrive and tediously change all my connection passwords from the old to the new. It's highly repetitive and it's a hassle that could be easily overcome by just storing the enterprise password in one place within ExpanDrive.

                        • Improve encryption support for SFTP

                          Right now the client will fail when connecting to a server that has a hardened configuration. Per this document. https://stribika.github.io/2015/01/04/secure-secure-shell.html

                          The error is:

                          > no matching mac found: client hmac-sha1,hmac-md5,hmac-sha1-96,hmac-md5-96 server

                          Please add support ffor stronger hmac algorithms. Please also review and add support for stronger key exchange, and symmetric ciphers.

                          • Skip files that fail

                            Mostly using oneDrive it gets stuck while transferring files.

                            This is ofc an error by itself, but i blame microsoft for this. however, instead of just keep trying to upload this file. skip and go to the next one, and then maybe go back and try again later. This way i don't have to babysit it when i have to upload bit amounts of data.

                            Maybe also, in relation. make a nice interface to handle thees errors, because mostly the files it cannot transfer i don't need anyway and it's tedious to go to the log to figure out which…

                              While ExpanDrive does support copy.com, I've noticed that some of my folders are totally empty. I'm not really sure what's going on.

                                  • Atomic File Saves

                                    I'd like to see the option for atomic file saves (if not already implemented or in the works), particularly as ExpanDrive is primarily used with network-based storage.

                                    Useful to ensure that files don't get corrupted if an upload is disconnected halfway, or if an editor attempts to load a file midway through the relatively slower (compared to local disc) upload process.

                                    • support replied after paying for program

                                      Got this great email from Jeff asking for feedback when using the demo. Program worked great on AWS S3 with Sublime Text 2 and so I bought it. Then I tried to get a connection to work with Ubuntu running on EC2 and it doesn't work. Contacted support multiple times and 6 months later no repose. PuTTY and WinSCP both work fine and cost nothing. I followed the setup steps but when I enter the passphrase for my key the UI says changes to "Connected" and then a pop-up "expandrivedw.exe has stopped working"

                                      Paid for the lifetime subscription, but even…

                                      • Service-specific drive icons

                                        A Google icon for Google Drive, a Box icon for a Box drive, etc. Would make them easier to recognize for me.
