The only thing more frustrating than leaving a file at home when you really need it is being unable to send a file to a co-worker or family member because it is too big for email.
If you commonly encounter these problems, you need to check out SugarSync and enter our SugarSync Back to school giveaway for a chance at a 30GB SugarSync account.
If you aren’t familiar with SugarSync, it is an online backup, syncing and sharing solution that offers more control than competitors like Dropbox, and offers 5GB of free storage to anyone who signs up. In short, SugarSync is Dropbox and thumbdrives on steroids. For more, check out our SugarSync review.
While I still use both SugarSync and Dropbox, SugarSync gives me more options to keep files in sync between my various devices and offers better sharing controls. Here are some ways I use SugarSync.
- To share large files with students
- To send photos and videos to family and friends
- To share large files with team members at Notebooks and GottaBeMobile
- To choose which files get synced to my MacBook Air’s limited drive
- To keep important files backed up to the cloud
Sharing files on SugarSync is more advanced than on Dropbox in a very good way. For instance, instead of taking up storage space on both of our accounts, if I share files with you, they only count against me. Also, I don’t need to place files in any special folder to share them, I can just share any file I am sending to SugarSync.
