  • SugarSync Use Cases and Deployment ScopeCurrently we use SugarSync to group sync and backup code developed to ensure stability and current development release between the coders. This allows us to seamlessly update code without too many out of sync revisions which is critical for our in house development.

    Pros : Seamless syncingBackup of critical dataEasy Colaboration

    Cons : A free version, 30 days is sometimes not long enough to see if it is suited for a project or business.

  • Overall, SugarSync provides a really good cloud storage service for small or large business users, particularly with an unlimited amount of online storage space. There are lots of handy features, functions and cross-platform compatibility that come with all accounts, enough to handle just about any type of file and any type of situation. With good (but not cheap) pricing, you get a lot for your money making a SugarSync a highly recommended choice in cloud backup services.

  • There are tons of great deals about SugarSync that I personally like. If you are like me doing business online and would like to backup your files securely and safely, I would recommend SugarSync.

    Like many other online file sharing solutions available in the market today, SugarSync is also a very secure and easy to use the platform to share files and save data on the cloud. With the ease with which this software can be used on multiple devices like phones and laptops increase user comfort and becomes a very convenient tool to use at any point in time. SugarSync allows its users to share file across multiple devices in one go. One can simply drag and drop the file to be transferred and send it across with minimum amount of clicks. To locate a file already present in your ‘My SugarSync’ folder, there is a search bar provided for user convenience. With this feature, one does not have to scroll through the documents to find the desired result.

    Pros :

    • The drag and drop feature in SugarSync works not only for files that are uploaded to the ‘My SugarSync’ folder, but one can also add the files in the ‘My SugarSync’ folder from personal devices through drag-drop.
    • This not only saves your time in locating the file while browsing but also makes the process faster and more accurate.
    • I am personally very fond of the SugarSync user interface as it is very interactive and very easy to use.
    • The features on the interface help to reduce your time to transfer file at every step.
    • Creating a public link for files is only a child's play in SugarSync.

    Cons :

    • SugarSync is not very well priced as compared to many of its competitors.
    • One has to combine files if a single file is more than 300 MB as SugarSync is not very supportive to large file transfers.
    • We have also observed that a folder that has a large number of files, although the files are small in size, are never synced well in SugarSync.
    • There are some or the other issues that keep popping up in such folders.

    SugarSync was one of the pioneers of online file syncing solutions. However it came to the market after the Dropbox, and its creators had to invent some competitive advantage. And so every user had got 5 Gb for free (compared to the 2 Gb that Dropbox gave) until the free plan had been completely removed. For now they offer only free 90 days trial. If the user likes the service, he is offered to pay minimum $7.49 a month for the 100 Gb of storage. There are also business plans starting from $55 a month. How SugarSync is different from other solutions that may be more low-cost? First, the SugarSync client does not connect to the specified folder on the user's hard drive. Instead, it gives the opportunity to backup any folder on one's computer. The user can also select any folder on one's computer to sync. So some folders may be just backed up to the online server, and some may be synced between the devices. Some folders could be shared with other users. Moreover, the owner can set permissions and have the full control of folder's usage. The users may have the permission to edit the files in the folder or just to read them. The shared folders can also be protected with passwords. One of the SugarSync's advantages is the WebSync java app that is used for online editing. While working with the web interface, one can request to edit the file using the WebSync. Then the file is downloaded to the local computer and opened in the associated program. All changes made by the user are saved, and edited file is again uploaded to the SugarSync server. Simultaneously, all temporary files, shortcuts, and other traces of editing are removed from the local computer. This method of editing is very convenient when you need to make changes to a file from the public computer.

    Pros :

    • Great features of web interface.
    • Convenient music player and photo viewer from the browser.
    • Flexible client option for syncing and file storing.

    Cons :

    • No free plan.
