Get link / Shared link :

Sharing is done through a public link.  Any person who receives it, can see the files and folders in it. Clicking on will create a URL link that looks similar to this :, which makes it hard to simply type it in.


An alternative option is to check the box next to the desired file or folder, and click the "More Actions" tab along the top menu bar.  From there you can select "Get Link", and you are again presented with various sharing options. Best of all, the recipient does not even need to have a Pogoplug account in order to view and
download your sent files.
