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.
Note: This article is part of the SharePoint 2013 Information Weekend, so it is shorter than regular articles. Check back to my blog or follow me on @furuknap during the weekend of July 13-15 2012 for lots of SharePoint 2013 information.
