Supports every Cloud

ExpanDrive creates a virtual drive for Mac and Windows that connects to all major cloud storage providers such as Dropbox, Google Drive, Google Team Drive, Amazon Drive, Box, OneDrive, Openstack Swift, BackBlaze B2, Amazon S3 or your own SFTP, FTP or WebDAV server and SMB/Windows File Sharing.

Super-fast uploads with Strongsync

ExpanDrive 6 changes the game again with a new multi-threaded connection engine that is up to 500% faster. ExpanDrive moves transfers into the background and transfers your files in parallel. This lets you keep working and stop waiting for transfers to complete. ExpanDrive v6 quickly uploads your files in the background.

Cloud storage in every application

ExpanDrive 6 acts just like a USB drive plugged into your computer. Open, edit, and save files to remote computers from within your favorite programs—even when they are on a server half a world away. Enhance every single application on your computer by transparently connecting it to remote data.

Finder and Explorer is your user interface

Securely access any remote file server directly from Finder and Explorer, or even the terminal. There’s no need to open a separate transfer client just for file transfer. ExpanDrive 6 extends the way all applications can access data.

System Requirements:

  • Windows XP SP3 or newer, tested through Windows 8.1
  • Supports 32-bit and 64-bit installations
  • Supports Windows Server editions, including terminal server
  • Does not support Windows RT

Single User license is $49.95.

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.
