ExpanDrive is software that can be used to download and manage files in the cloud. Accessing files in the cloud is the same as accessing a USB drive connected to your Mac or PC. ExpanDrive puts uploads in the background, much like popular sync apps. This allows you to keep working without waiting for the transfer to complete. ExpanDrive contains a multi-threaded connection engine which makes the tool faster and more responsive.
This software acts like a USB drive that is plugged into the computer. Open, edit and save files to remote computers directly from your favorite programs – even when the files are on servers in other parts of the world. ExpanDrive extends the capabilities of every application on your computer, seamlessly connecting to remote data.
With ExpanDrive, you can safely access remote file servers directly from Finder and Windows Explorer, or even from the terminal. No need to open a separate transfer client just to transfer files. ExpanDrive extends the methods for accessing data across all applications.
Features of ExpanDrive:
- Built in Finder and Explorer
ExpanDrive adds cloud storage such as Google Drive, Dropbox, Amazon S3, SFTP (SSH), Box, OneDrive, and Sharepoint to Finder and Explorer. Don’t worry about additional data-only applications. ExpanDrive connects cloud storage to all applications on your computer, including Office 365, Photoshop, and VS Code.
- Smart offline sync
Select files to access offline and work offline. Cloud sync happens automatically the next time you go online. Other files can be accessed on demand from the cloud without taking up disk space.
- Integrated search
ExpanDrive connects to Spotlight Search on Mac and File Search on Windows. Quickly search remote storage for whatever you need. The internal storage browser has additional support for extremely fast server side searches.
- Multi-user file locking
ExpanDrive now distributes key files in Microsoft Office documents via the cloud. If a user edits an Office document, other users can open the document as read-only until the editing user closes it.
- File version control
Easily access older versions of files on version-controlled cloud storage including Box, Dropbox, S3, Google Drive, OneDrive, and Sharepoint.
- Cloud storage in each application
Add cloud storage such as Google, Dropbox, Amazon S3, Sharepoint and more to any application on your computer. ExpanDrive makes a secure file system connection to the cloud. Open, edit and save files on remote computers from your favorite programs – even if they are on servers half the world.
- Very fast background loading
ExpanDrive has a multi-threaded connection mechanism that is up to 50% faster than the previous version. ExpanDrive performs simultaneous transfers in the background so you have reliable transfers even on an unreliable internet. Keep working and don’t wait for the download to finish.
