SugarSync Improves Cloud Sharing, Collaboration
SugarSync announced that users can now sync folders and files with other users. The new multi-user files and folders can be accessed on just about any device, making it easy for teams to collaborate and backup their work.
One nice feature of this service is that only the originator of the shared folders and files has to pay for the storage. Some services require each user to pay for space used. This can come in handy, for example, when working on large multimedia projects with external clients. Simply getting third parties to install and use a cloud collaboration service can be a pain, getting them to pay for the service can be all but impossible.
Changes to shared folders on SugarSync are tracked and users can retore files and folders to the last five versions.
SugarSync accounts are available from $4.99 per month (30GB) to $24.99 per month (250GB).

Of course Dropbox has had this functionality for ages ;-)

Good review – here are a few recent changes as of June 2011:
You get 5GB of space with the FREE version, but now there is no restriction to the number of computers you can sync/backup (up from 2).
It gives you the ability to upload and sync any folder on your computer.
It is the only service that offers such a broad device and OS support with apps for BlackBerry, Android, iPhone/iPad, Symbian, not to mention your computer!
Also if you use the below referral code you get a bonus 500MB extra on top of your Free 5GB!
Hope it helps someone.
