After reading through the thread here, I've got a couple of things to add:
1) I LOVE my MyBookLive 3 TB! I have a Passport 1 GB, but having to plug in & out everywhere I go was getting to be a pain (especially at work, where the computers are so locked down I can't even get into the wd2go.com site!)
2) I have a Moto Xoom Wifi and a HTC Desire HD, and have the WD2Go Pro s/w on both. Love the fact I can clip specific folders to be able to "download" to the local drive.
I have one question if someone from WDC or a knowledgeable community member can answer:
- When I initially clip a folder, and the app shows the "progress bar" on the screen, what exactly is the app doing? Is it just arranging the one-way sync relationship between the MBL and my mobile device? Or is it actually downloading a copy of the files to the mobile device... and if this is true, where does the app save the file to?
I understand that the "sync" is only one-way for now. I will add my multi-hundred-dollar-loyal-paying-customer voice to others to ask WDC to make a two-way sync a priority for the next version of WD2Go Pro.
Here's my example scenario:
As a Registered Nurse and a nursing clinical instructor, I don't load up on paper so much as I use my Xoom during clinicals. Each semester I create an Excel spreadsheet with student names and various cells for each date's grades, assignments, etc. I have this stored on my "school" folder on my MBL, so I can connect to it on my laptop or mobile device. I'd love to be able to simply connect to my MBL with WD2Go Pro, load and edit the file for each day's assignment/grades, save it and send it back to the MBL without having to mail it back to myself or copy it to my SugarSync folder... either way, I'm having to take additional steps to keep the current version of the file on the MBL.
I'm sure I'm not the only one. I use SugarSync which works GREAT and instant, 2-way sync. BUT... having shelled out some serious cash for a 3 TB MBL, I'd much rather use ONE solution for two-way sync and have ONE cloud storage (MBL), than have to spread various files between SugarSync, SharePoint, SkyDrive, GoogleDocs, etc. etc.
WDC's addition of two-way live sync to the WD2Go Pro software would SERIOUSLY simplify the life of an overworked ful-time RN, graduate student (working on Family Nurse Practitioner), and nursing instructor!
