Map Sharepoint Drive on Mac, Windows and Linux | ExpanDrive
Native access to your files in the cloud is critical for any serious workflow. Using a sync client you generally have a folder on your machine that has a copy of all of your files pre-downloaded and it watches for chances.
With drive based you access only what you need, when you need it. ExpanDrive also is a full featured Sharepoint browser and uploader manager, to help you with data migration and management.
The New (Long-Awaited) SharePoint Sync Client
It keeps you connected and your files accessible without needing to log into a browser. When you double click a file from Finder or Explorer it is transparently downloaded in the background. The same goes for any app on your machine, like Word, Excel, Photoshop — whatever.
It builds Sharepoint support right into the operating system.

ExpanDrive access files on demand, not taking up valuable hard drive space by pre-syncing your entire site or document library. Another nice feature of a Sharepoint client that connects via a mounted drive is that you can do things like map a specific Sharepoint subsite.
This lets you turn a single document library that might be deeply nested into its own drive letter within Explorer or mounted volume in Finder. ExpanDrive lets you map your Sharepoint account as drive letter on Mac or Windows. You can browse and access your account without needing to first sync your files, which takes up time and space on your laptop.
Just access what you need, when you need it, from within any app like Finder, Windows Explorer, Microsoft Word, Photoshop, or whatever you use. This folder is automatically added to the left pane in File Explorer.
If you see a lock icon on synced files in File Explorer, it means the files are synced read-only. You might not have permission to edit the files, or the library might require checkout or have required columns or metadata.

To move Office files, go to the site and use the "Copy to" command.
