ExpanDrive is a fast and powerful S3 Client for Windows, Mac and Linux. If you need to manage content in the cloud you’re going to need a powerful tool like ExpanDrive to connect to the S3 API. While Amazon provides a basic storage browser inside the AWS console it’s not a complete solution designed for desktop access or heavy usage.

There are a wide variety of S3 clients available. ExpanDrive is a particularly powerful one. It securely maps your computer to Amazon S3 (and compatible) cloud storage as a fast mapped network drive, accessible from within Finder, Explorer and every other app on your computer.

You can use ExpanDrive as S3 Uploader or data migration tool as well as a bulk downloader. In most ways it’s just like an infinite sized external hard drive attached to your computer, but with the data transparently stored out in Amazon’s Cloud.

ExpanDrive also features a robust cloud storage browser to help with advanced S3 functionality like editing the ACL of objects or setting their storage class. You can also easily manage old versions of objects on versioning-enabled buckets or get a pre-signed link to share data.
