"Mac version is 1 star, Windows version is 5 stars."

September 14, 2014  |  By user92831

 |  Version: WebDrive 12.0

Pros

None. Windows version is almost everything you could want, though.

Cons

This list is for Webdrive on Mac.
-Cannot follow symlinks. Confirmed by customer support. What FREE or paid SFTP utility doesn't support *nix symlinks on a Unix-based OS?
-No option to manually clear cache, you must disconnect/reconnect
-The text editor, Sublime Text 2, does something to trigger a silent connection/cache/misc? within Webdrive. Your connection is dropped, but there's no notification, nor entries in the debug log.
-No ability to connect/disconnect to a remote site with the menu bar icon. Without this, there's barely a reason to keep the icon in the menu bar.
-No folder ability in the connection manager.
-File corruption with saving in single user mode. I ensured there's no other process using the file. I didn't research this issue extensively, but it's odd that it goes away in multi-user mode.
-No file synchronization.
-Most settings available in the Windows client do not exist on Mac. I don't care so much about this, considering the problems above.

Summary

WebDrive on Mac is light years behind their Windows version. Even at a lower cost, it's not worth it. I've used the Windows version for years, with very few problems, and it is highly capable. Calling their Mac equivalent "WebDrive" is an insult to the original program. "WebDrive" for Mac is already at version 3, it makes me wonder what version 1 did.

I love the Windows version, I can only hope they one day put effort into making the Mac version reach parity with it.
