What are the best ExpanDrive alternatives?

As a virtual filesystem, ExpanDrive gives you a wide range of storage options. Not many other apps can boast ExpanDrive's integration with Windows Explorer and Finder, as well as support for major cloud drive services such as Google Drive. With that said, there are a few limitations to consider.

ExpanDrive is paid software only available for Windows and macOS. Luckily, there are plenty of alternatives available for Linux-based operating systems, iOS devices, and Android. On top of that, there are plenty of free services available as alternatives, several of which are also open source.

ExpanDrive alternatives are mainly FTP Clients but may also be Cloud Storage Services or File Sync Tools. Filter by these if you want a narrower list of alternatives or looking for a specific functionality of ExpanDrive.

    Had problems connecting with ExpanDrive. Switched to RaiDrive, connected to our SFTP server just fine, and mounted the folders.

    ExpanDrive is for mounting. Rclone, while powerful in other ways, does not do this.

    It needs proficiency at the Linux command line -- a bar high enough to exclude the lay person who wants to ditch the tyranny of Micro$oft and opt for the benevolence of Linux. Only to be stumped by such discrimination!

    Faster, more stable and better integrated. ExpanDrive supports more cloud services, but in my experience, the macOS integration cause Finder to often freeze.
