On the mac being able to mount SMB drives and AFP drives as well
I would like to use expandrive for all my mounts. Now I find myself switching between expandrive and the finder to mount my volumes.
This is supported in V6
I just tried it. Under Server you put smb://address/share
works for me

Awesome. I tried but wasn't successful in using the feature. When checking the docs http://www.expandrive.com/docs/ I noticed that SMB is not documented yet. I just want to make sure that I use the right syntax before asking a support question. Could that documentation be added please?

I don't understand ExpanDrive not having ever commented on this! I also assume since this has been here for so long that they're are WAY under-resourced or something. This is NOT HARD, people. Or if it is, tell us!!

I want this feature also.

Ditto on SMB. Would love to see this feature added.
Really would love this feature!
Having SMB/NFS/AFP connections in local networks and SAME connections via WebDav/SFTP when remote.. (just for example: having iTunes Lib on a NAS) Actually, WebDav/SFTP sometimes drop connection and iTunes Lib gets lost - quite unentertaining with 35k of Tracks..)

Came to UserVoice to add this; I have several mounts my home NAS which I would really like to managed through ExpanDrive. Expandrive should support the native 'Server Connection' types in OS-X i.e. SMB, NFS, AFS.

For Mac-Mac connections, SSH is just as fast and more secure than AFP. While it may be more complicated to setup for first use, once you've done that it's just as fast as any other type of connection in ExpanDrive. SMB would be nice, but is AFP really necessary?
I would expect this to be an easy win since it's built into the Mac and you're just making it more convenient for us. Here's hoping to see it added to the "working on" list
Any word on this request?
This would be VERY useful to me!
+1 to this -- only reason I haven't purchased yet
Getting a network share to re-mount on a Mac after reboot has been the bane of my IT existence at our studio. Our company would buy copies of Expandrive for *every Mac in our company* if it gets this feature. Wanted DESPERATELY.

Especially when Apples SMB client against Windows servers are so crappy!

let us add NFS to this list
