ExpanDrive is a powerful and practical cross-platform cloud drive mapping tool that can mount a variety of cloud disks as network drive that works like a local disk. It supports Amazon S3, Dropbox, Google Drive, Google Team Drives, Amazon Drive, Box, OneDrive, OneDrive for Business, Sharepoint, Openstack Swift and other internationally-known cloud drive services. In addition, for webmasters or administrators, it also supports mounting your own servers as local disks via SFTP (SSH), FTP, WebDAV for easy and efficient use.

ExpanDrive is on of the fastest way to upload and manage files in the cloud storage. As a result, accessing to files in the cloud can be the same as using a USB drive connected to your Mac or PC. Even better, ExpanDrive moves the forwarding to the background, which makes it be like a synchronization application. This allows user to continue working and do not have to wait for the file transfer process to complete. Besides, ExpanDrive contains a multi-threaded connection engine, which makes this tool very quick and much more responsive.

With ExpanDrive, you can safely and easily access any remote file server directly from Mac’s Finder and Windows’ File Explorer, or even from a terminal, no need to open a separate cloud storage client just for file transfer any more. Users can easily perform file operations such like open, edit, save, copy, move, and delete on remote servers locally, which is just as easily as they are stored on a local hard drive or a USB Flash disk plugged into the computer. BTW, if your Internet connection speed is not good enough, there may be some delay when operating files. Also, it’s best not to open remote files that are too big.
