Hi, have looked around for the Seagate GoFlex Net however have been told the Seagate GoFlex Central now replaces the Net version.  Is this correct?

Bender B. Rodriguez says:

Can you put pictures in there from your mobile devices? My sister has an iPhone and the downside to that is limited space for pictures with no room to expand, can she put all her pictures in there from her phone through the app?

Chris says:

Hello Armando! You convinced me to buy the Goflex. I already have a Samsung external HDD. I connected everything, registered on the website, downloaded the app on my LG, I can view everything on the HDD, BUT! I can’t “map” the drive on my computer. When I enter “my computer” and click on “network” (i have windows 7), there is no “FAD…..” icon to click.. What can I do to view my HDD directly from “my computer”? 🙁 I would be so happy if you would help, plus i don’t really know who else i could ask 😀

Angel says:

Would I be able to upload Peachtree and accounting program to this and it can be accessed by myself or someone in another state?

Daniel Murray says:

Something that wasn’t mentioned. The offsite donwload speed (aka a friends house erc.) of your personal cloud is limited by the Upload speed of your home connection…which for most people is total shit (3Mbps to at most 10Mbps for your average Cable HS Internet).

Lorenzo Henriquez says:

+Armando Ferreira I followed this guide and everything “works”, it’s a pretty convenient setup for a home-based cloud however, the transfer speeds on the GoFlex device are ridiculously slow. I can get 3 MB/s write speed tops and I’ve been reading about it on the Internet and a lot of people also have this issue with the device. 

Did you also have this issue and if so, did you fix and how?

Samuel Kaiser says:

It’s not working with ReadyNAS (Duo), right? 🙁

Black Smith says:

hi Armando, I have pogoplug with 2TB hard-drive now I cant access my hard drive.
can you help me with that?

Michal I says:

+Armando Ferreira still using pogoplug? im chosing right home cloud network solution for me 🙂

Lord of Death Gaming says:

How is this with making a server such as a game server is it better that a rented server such as loading speed or lag or is that dependent on your internet provider?

waltovsky says:

OVERHEATING DRIVES? Hi Armando, loved your video tut!! it was just what i was looking for and I just got bought the Free Agent GoFlex Net dock and 2 drives and its working fine.
Now my question is regarding the drives overheating… I can´t find a setting that allows me to put the drives on sleep mode when not in use, and I’e been looking on seagate and pogoplug forums with no luck.
Is sleep mode even possible? and if not, aren’t the drives prone to crash by overheat eventually? – Thanks!

ucheucheuche says:

I have access to 10TB cloud backup, but would like a personal cloud version. Hence , watching this.

Operating System Mix says:

can I create url for files to share with my friends to download they from their pc … ?

Curtis Cleary says:

I was just wondering if you were at home on your android device, whilst on the pogoplug app would the file.s be directly accessed from the nas or through the pogoplug server first?

Nick Rains says:

Why go this route instead of something like the Western Digital My Cloud?

heehee63 says:

mybooklive. Cheaper and easier with slightly more features. It has the same problem as this setup though where if your house is on fire you lose everything. There’s other options for setting up automatic remote backup on two NAS in two separate homes. But you got to be more tech savvy than me to do it.

BadKarma 714 says:

They have 2Tb drives now

Ali Hakkı Demiral says:

boring OOoooaaaaaa  pls do it. dont talk so much. and dont play with this thing.

Tarek Zoubi says:

This cloud drive is for self use or public

Joseph Kennedy says:
