With ProtonDrive, it would be nice if similar to how ProtonMail establishes a local mail server, if for ProtonDrive the bridge provided a local file server (WebDAV, etc.).
I'd expect the bridge to handle encryption/decryption and then could easily integrate the drive into any local file manager, etc.
It's goes without saying that Proton Drive needs a Drive. :P
Like most competitors do, having a Drive letter assign via WebDAV/FUSE would be great with some extra security integration options like pin/2fa or key to access.
This would allow me to back up my computers to Proton Drive.
A very good idea!!
My backup software supports WebDAV and I can't use proton Drive with it.

Being able to mount the drive would be a good idea. Google Drive has such a possibility (google-drive-ocamlfuse, GCSF). It is also possible for Dropbox.

Consider this an upvote for being able to mount proton drive to my systems.
Would personally love to see Proton services integrated into GNOME Online Accounts in the future.
I imagine integrating with the Linux bridge would be a start.
Agree with all. Would greatly appreciate and use this feature.

be great if there was a command line linux tool like vpn
protondrive-cli login <user name>
protondrive-cli mount <local path>
And then I could go to <local path> and see my folders and files. Alternatively I could select which files and folders to download. then I could use local tools to search and do all I need.
Would be nice for automatic off-site backups
Yes, so the remote share can be mounted locally and used from the command line on linux/mac without having to use the webpage to upload/download files.

Yeah, I am looking for this to be added so that I can attach the drive as a drive E: or to some subfolder then upon access ask/prompts for PW with a user-definable time out or tied to use lock/screen saver startup before asking again. Would make accessing the proton drive much more seamless.
