Connect Two Google Drive Accounts at once
Many users have a Google Workspace 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. Also, using a sync-style client has the additional issue of eating up valuable hard drive space storing files you might not need, or need infrequently.
Map a specific Team Drive
In addition to connecting multiple drives, ExpanDrive lets you connect to specific team drives alongside your primary account. This is handy for users who only do work inside a certain team drive and don’t need visibility into the rest of the organization’s data hierarchy.
Access multiple Google Drive Accounts on demand without sync
ExpanDrive is a special kind of Google Drive client that lets you access multiple Google Drive accounts as a fast network drive. You can even mount a specific Team Site or a subfolder within your account. ExpanDrive securely connects via the Google API. You can connect as many accounts on one machine as you want. All of the files are accessed without needing to sync down the content.
It’s easy as authenticating multiple accounts and assigning them unique nicknames, give it a try for free.
