I think thats the best win8 app, from cloud services. I think that is useless a single browser like Dropbox, now SugarSync enables interactivity with the win8 app and now you can check the file direct from cloud, use it, modify it, and save it direct to cloud, without the need of the classic sugarsync service installed on your win8. Just Perfect Again one awesome innovation from SugarSync.

Sorry for my bad english!

Cost too much, frequently slow speeds. Crashes with software. Not okay for me.

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.

SugarSync is a real mixed bag. On one hand the service as a whole has some really intuitive features that would probably make it my #1 choice for an online backup solution. However, on the other hand, the way its client app (ab)uses and (mis)manages network bandwidth, drive access and CPU usage is so poor that it ranks amongst one of the biggest resources hogs of recent times. To put it in terms, SugarSync is often so poorly responsive bog down a system as badly (if not worse!) than, for example, running Firefox with 3-4 dozen extensions and 50-100 tabs open or, say, Photoshop loaded up with heavy duty extensions and a dozen huge ultra-high res projects open at once.

The last straw (for me) was the fact that it CONSTANTLY is syncing. After two weeks of usage it still hadn't fully upload the ~4 GB of files I had hand-picked as my backup essentials. Even files that hadn't been modified since I began using SugarSync keep appearing in the upload queue as if they had changed and needed to be synced with the online backup. The impact was significant enough that I noticed a big slow down in web browsing (page load times, etc.) and, upon closer inspection, my ratios on private torrent trackers were plummeting because SugarSync's endless and rampant syncing was crowding out my bittorrent client no matter how I tweaked the upload bandwidth throttling.

It's a shame because after trying a variety of online backup solutions -- including DropBox, Mozy, SpiderOak, Wuala and SkyDrive -- I found that SugarSync was the all around best in terms of features. The overall service is just implemented poorly though. If the syncing/bandwidth issues were resolves, I'd definitely give SugarSync another shot.

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.
