    Seagate GoFlex Net with SqueezePlug - Any Good?

    Hi looking to change my ReadyNas Duo for a device with I can leave on 24/7 with low power consumption. Having decided on a Plug Computer running Squeezeplug what would you say is the best one to go for?

    Ive been looking at GoFlex Net. Once SqueezePlug is installed, to access the hard drives on GoFlex from my pc is it a case of just finding them on the network i.e start/computer? And can I just drag and drop files over the network to the hard drives on the GoFlex either wireless and wired?

    I'd like a backup so I'd have two drives with the exact same info on, I guess I'll have to manually copy to both as there is no RAID or similar?

    The SqueezePlug instal looks simple but are there any known issues? I know that once installed the PogoPlug system is no longer accessible but can you still change the general settings on the GoFlex device i.e you can still access the web interface?

    Thanks, Matt.

    I like it very much, but that's not a wonder, I made it!

    You can see SqueezePlug in your explorer as a Samba-Share. Drag an drop is surely possible.

    You can do this very simple with a cron-job using rsync.

    You will loose the Pogo-Software completely and you you can not revert this!
