SugarSync Users – How is it Going?

It has been about month since our big SugarSync contest, and I’m curious how folks are liking the SugarSync? syncing solution?

I’ve been enjoying it quite a bit. In fact, with my recent swap out from different Latitude XT computers, SugarSync made the transition quite simple: just install the SugarSync client, set it up for syncing, and then all of my documents and pictures were automatically downloaded overnight from the SugarSync servers. The only thing I had to do was install my apps and bring my Outlook data over.


There are some things I’d like to see improved, like folder sharing on regular files, but overall I couldn’t be happier with this syncing solution. I understand that folder sharing is on SugarSync’s roadmap, so hopefully that problem will get resolved soon. I’m getting such a good benefit from SugarSync, that I purchased the upgrade from the 45-day trial 10 GB account to the 60 GB account. The seamless experience is well worth the price, in my opinion.

I’m working on a comparison article, taking a look at BeInSync, SugarSync, xDrive, and Live Mesh, to see which ones have strengths over each other, which are good solutions for businesses vs consumers, and the differing price points. I’m about two weeks out from having that complete, but it should be a good reference point for those wanting to take a look at the various syncing solutions out there.

If you’d like to try out SugarSync, head over and try out their free 45 day 10 GB trial. Note: SugarSync is affiliate advertiser on GBM, but I would still be recommending them regardless.


Any success stories / problems folks want to share?
