Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade expandrive -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" --version="'2021.6.4'" 

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"

ExpanDrive is a fast network drive and browser for cloud storage.
Securely access the cloud from any application, including Finder and Explorer.

Built into Finder and Explorer

ExpanDrive adds cloud storage like Google Drive, Dropbox, Amazon S3, SFTP, Box, OneDrive and Sharepoint to Finder and Explorer. Don’t bother with an extra app just to move data around. ExpanDrive connects cloud storage to every application on your computer including Office 365, Photoshop, and VS Code.

Smart Offline Sync

Choose files for offline access and work without an internet connection. Synchronization to the cloud takes place automatically when you’re back online. Other files are accessed on-demand from the cloud, taking no disk space.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
