Map or Mount Dropbox as a Network Drive on Mac and Windows

Dropbox is the most popular consumer online storage platform, now with over half a billion users in the system. Their primary client is the Dropbox desktop sync client, which mirrors a folder named Dropbox out to the cloud. It works great. However, as the amount of data you deal with in Dropbox or the number of users all accessing the same storage in Dropbox for Business starts to increase, sync gets pretty messy. Things like figuring out how to deal with different users that only have permission to a subset of the data or dealing with a 5TB dropbox account with users that only have a few hundred GB of storage on their Windows 7 laptops start to become real problems.

Map Dropbox as a Drive

ExpanDrive solves this by letting you actually mount Dropbox as a virtual drive on Mac and Windows. This lets you access your content natively, from Finder or Explorer, without having to sync the data. It’s all on demand, like a regular native filesystem. To get started, you want to download ExpanDrive.

Multiple Google Drive accounts on Mac and Windows

Google’s Backup and Sync client and File Stream client are only able to connect to a single GSuite account. This makes sense for most people. If you want to connect to multiple accounts at the same time ExpanDrive for Mac and Windows is an amazing option.

Connect Two Google Drive Accounts at once

It’s not uncommon for people to have a GSuite account for work or school as well as a personal one. With multiple accounts your only option to move data in and out of both of those is using the browser. This might be fine for occasional use, but any serious user relies on native access to their files.
