I love how sugarsync can mirror my smartphone album folder structure. Is there any alternatives that can do the same?

SugarSync has dropped its "freemium" business model and will transition to a paid-only service by February 2014.

Bad news~


No Linux Support!

about SugarSync · Sep 2012 · Helpful Not helpful

SugarSync has lost a client here, simply because they refuse to support Linux!

There is no official Linux support. I read up on there forum that there is a 3rd party person doing a Linux client as a side project "Mark" it was I think was his name. But it truly is a shame to exclude Linux as a distribution, I do understand Linux has a smaller user base vs Windows or Mac. But still Linux has large developers user base which benefit from file storage services like SugarSync, but SugarSync lost this war to Dropbox which is truly cross platform.

You can sign up on SugarSync using the following link to get extra 5000MB (10GB) space, enough for 5-10 movies:

I used SugarSync but I don't want to use it any more. I use best crypt and made encrypted container. I mount it as a disk Z:\ and sync with the help of SugarSync. Once upon a time, while working, my computer was suddenly rebooted. When windows loaded again and I mounted disk Z- it was EMPTY!!! I was shocked!!!! I went through web interface to sugarsync and found that all of my files were in "deleted" folder! The problem is that you can't restore them by a couple of clicks to the folders where they were stored formerly. You must do a huge job with each file. You can imagine how "easy" it' to do when you have over 20000 files. I warned their support but without results. Nonetheless I've made this job!!! When a couple of weeks my computer was rebooted again and I saw the same picture I refused SugarSync...

note to em4020: i think you must work for this SpiderOak the way you go on about it.

Being an avid dropbox user, finding sugarsync was probabbly the best move ever.

To clarify, You get 5gb free with sugarsync and 250mb for completing the getting started, and currently 500mb for every refferal sign-up. and im sure if you sign up usign a referal link, i didnt, you get an extra 500mb also.


Exclude folders and files from synchronisation

You cannot make a blacklist for each folder, what files should not be synced
This is a disadvantage of SugarSync in comparison with SpiderOak.
In SugarSync you can only exclude complete subfolders from synchronisation.
In SpiderOak you can (a) generally exclude files specified by wildcards and (b) different for each folder:
In SugarSync you cannot excude the files SyncToy*.dat, .synkr*, WebSynTh*.xml, deskto*.ini from synchronisation.

New and only alternative to SugarSync for Windows Mobile: CloudFiles

CloudFiles - with Dropbox is basically the missing Windows Phone Frontend for the awesome file synchronization tool called Dropbox. Like Dropboxs official iPhone and Android Apps, CloudFiles gives you access to all your stored files and folders in the cloud.


SugarSync is also available as a portable-app

SugarSync also available as a portable-app

Link to the download of the portable app:
The portable SugarSync-app should be able to run even on a computer, where you do not have administrator rights for the installation procedure, e.g. to run from a USB-memory-stick

As distinguished from DropBox SugarSync is able to Sync files from online storage with Windows Mobile devices for free. For Synchronisation of "Windows Mobile" files with Online Files I know and like only SugarSync and Evernote:


SugarSync (not DropBox) can Sync Windows Mobile devices

In Difference to SugarSync, DropBox is not able to Sync Windows Mobile devices.
See, why SugarSync is different from DropBox, or MobileMe:

Comparison link

With Cloudfiles for DropBox you can also sync your DropBox-Files with Windows Mobile.

Now that Sugarsync has 2gb free i am thinking of trying it out a bit more. It's a really good service!
