#SP2013INFOWKND: Dropbox Style File Synchronization in SharePoint 2013 My Site Documents

I know several people have requested this feature for months, and I’m happy to report that it seems SharePoint 2013 will include a Dropbox-style file synchronization feature as part of the new SharePoint My Site Documents application.

What will happen is that you get a folder on your hard drive (and a link under Favorites in Windows Explorer) to which you can connect a specific SharePoint library. If so, this could make it a lot easier to work with SharePoint content offline.

Cool eh?

I previously did SharePoint. These days, I try new things to see where I can find the passion. If you have great ideas, cool projects, or is in general an awesome person, get in touch and we might find out together.

  1. Yeah really cool, but also very easy to create, are there no 3rd party tools that enable this for SharePoint 2010? Sounds like a FileSystemWatcher build into a windows service, connecting to a configurable document library.
