ExpanDrive Alternatives for Windows

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.
