A Love Letter to Dropbox

2018-11-16

Pros

When it comes to cloud storage I've gone through CloudApp, Box, SugarSync, Google Drive, OneDrive, and so many others.

Cons

There's some "bells and whistles" other services have that Dropbox hasn't integrated but honestly I don't miss them.

Good dropbox like solution but not as fast as others

2018-03-31

Pros

I really like the option to sync folders like dropbox and is easy to setup and share files with others.

Cons

I don't know if it was just me, but the web browser downloads were painfully slow. I had Google Fiber and it struggled

Easy to Setup, Cheap Backup Solution

2018-04-10

Pros

It was super easy to setup, allows backing up of existing folders (as opposed to Box.com or Dropbox). We really like the version history.

Cons

I didn't find anything that we really disliked about SugarSync. It did everything we were looking for and more.

SugarSync doesn't offer anything unique to justify the cost of the service.

2018-06-05

Pros

It works almost intuitively, allowing you to select what folders and files you want to sync, and instead of creating duplicates on your system and hogging space like Dropbox and other options do, SugarSync allows you to sync items in place, without creating a SugarSync directory on your computer with copied versions of all the files.

Cons

Unfortunately, SugarSync did not work with MyCloud, which meant it wasn't the app for me. It's also insanely expensive. I can get 1-2TB of storage from other places at a lesser price than a month, that do the same exact thing. In my opinion, SugarSync doesn't offer anything truly unique or life-changing that can justify the cost of the service, especially as after awhile, it started running up the CPU and taking more and more resources from other programs.

SugarSync offers the folder specific syncing that very few others do.

2018-07-13

Pros

(Most others, like Dropbox, which I also like and use, but for different reasons , make you use their folder.)

Cons

Once in a while there is a hiccup and the sync stops working properly for a certain folder. That can be a little nerve wracking to fix, but for the most part, it's a time saver. I also don't like that they went from freemium to pay only at one point; it's not that it wasn't worth it, but it always feels a little sneaky when you become reliant on something and then you're almost "forced" to keep going with it.
