Integrate Moint Points under Windows7 - instead of Drive letter

If you have several USB-Sticks, Google Drives and WebDav Share connected, you are running out of Drive Letters. So it would be a real good idea to use a Directory as an Mount Point - instead of Drive Letters ...

        This hasn't been commented on in a while, but with all the services I have ExpanDrive giving me access to (and more to come) and USB drives, I have 7 drive letters left.

        So it would be great to have access via ExanDrive without the burden of a drive letter!

        ExpanDrive currently exports the configured drives as a UNC Path of \\ExpanDrive\[DriveName] and maps that UNC path to a drive letter.
        I have a suggestion at http://expandrive.uservoice.com/forums/205560-expandrive-feature-requests/suggestions/4335270-mount-server-as-expandrive-nickname-unc-path-onl that an option be added to skip the map the UNC path to a drive letter part.
        I wanted it because I have a library in Windows that uses the UNC path so I don't need or want a drive letter.
        In your case, if that feature existed then you could create a symlink at C:\Mount\MyDrive to get the effect you want. Or just a shortcut in Windows Explorer to \\ExpanDrive to access all ExpanDrive drives in programs that support UNC paths.
