ExpanDrive Reviews

A great feature list but remains slow and buggy

The ability to connect to multiple Dropbox, Drive, Onedrive and nearly every other storage platform and have that connection mounted as a drive in Finder is great.

Unfortunately it is not reliable and extremely slow, both the speed in which it transfers the files and the way it brings your Mac to a crawl. I assume it is indexing or something, but it makes it very hard to use.

When you do finally start a transfer, it is a "throw a six to start" process. Will it work? Will it disconnect you half way through? Will the file be corrupt?

To be fair it does work some of the time, but it doesn't work more times than it does.

The key thing that really annoys me is that the developer is working on fixes, but he saves them for paid upgrades. I have gone from original, to a paid upgrade and it was still buggy. When the new version 5 came out, I downloaded the trial and it was still unreliable (though it was better than before)

Happy to pay for new features, not happy to pay to fix the features I originally paid for.

I am paying customer and I would advise others on looking for other alternatives to Expand Drive because I am not pleased about their business style.

Expand Drive are not aiming to have reliable product or to make easy to raise tickets. You will not find a support link in their application, you have to google a lot to find a place to raise tickets and even after this it can take many days to get a response, even if you do.

You will not find even a link to the company website from the menus or About box.

The only public place where you can find things about ExpanDrive is https://expandrive.uservoice.com

For example SSH (SFTP) mounted drives are silently unmounted after some time (like having your computer resumed after suspend). Still Expand Drive reports the drive as mounted, and you have to press eject on it and plan buttons in order to make it work again.

My impression is this app the the kind of app you would see included in the app-bundles made out of software with questionable usability.

This app is a useless! It's unstable, loses connection after few minutes, doesn't work as expected.
