i am experimenting with a 30 day demo of expandrive (1.1) and mounting a remote disk (my dreamhost account which runs linux i think) in the finder ... so far so good! beautiful wonderful looks just like a usb drive...

but ... copying files to it and back to the local drive : small txt type files seem to copy ok and smaller pdfs < 1mb but larger files (pdf mp3) are consistently producing an error -36 which i understand is an I/O error and failing to copy - so much for being just like a usb drive!

no word from support in response to my email so far.

I think I'll give it another chance:

"Lately I'm using ExpanDrive (http://www.magnetk.com/expandrive), which
just launched officially. Same transport (SSH/SFTP), but with very
aggressive caching and intelligent connection management under the
hood. Together, they make it way snappier than sshfs on even
high-latency links, and allow your mounts to stay live on finicky or
intermittent connections, even as you sleep your laptop one place and
wake it hours later on an entirely different network."

Does it not mount normal FTP servers? I tied to add a valid address with correct password and all information, but it didn't let me connect to that server, even if I knew (and tested) that it was indeed online and fully working...

Appreciating some enlightenment here.

I was thinking along the same lines at first since It uses FUSE just like MacFusion. But it's faster and I have a feeling that it'll quickly outpace MacFusion in stability and therefore dependability.

I can't see any reason why to buy this app when there's MacFusion for free - or is there anything special what I missed?
