PogoPlug and Seagate Offer Up The FreeAgent DockStar

pogoplugdockstarI’m a big fan of PogoPlug. I use it as my own personal cloud storage. Now PogoPlug is teaming up with Seagate to offer the FreeAgent DockStar, which is essentially a dock that allows you to plug in your drive and presto, you’re able to access and share your files via the PogoPlug technology that is built into the dock. Of course this works only with the Seagate FreeAgent drives.

This looks like a great idea. You can read more about it on the PogoPlug blog.

    Anyone know if there is an Offline Files option to sync files while mobile (or otherwise offline like an Airplane). I am not interested in copying files locally, updating them, and then manfully moving them back to the Pogoplug share (Server). Windows Offline Files enables a much better workflow; Open, edit, Save. Also, if my coworker updates a file which I have an “Offline Files” cache with, the new update will be pushed to my local store automatically, ensuing In using the latest version. I’m hoping that this feature of Windows will work with the Pogoplug client software. Anyone know?

    Offline Files works with mapped network drives, but not local drives (like a USB key). The Pogoplug client software allows you to use Explorer, but does not state how the disk is mounted; Local Drive (this would be bad) or Mapped Network Drive (this would be good). [Yes, I know the drive actually is a network drive, but that does not mean that the client software mounts it that way.]
