Straightforward cloud backup

2017-09-18

Secure cloud storage in Canada

Great cloud storage backup for documents

2018-08-02

Simple, safe cloud backup for corporate documents

Pros

Synchronization is seamless and it supports multiple users to access the files and folders. The storage space they offer is also huge for the premium version.

Cons

The cost can be considered high as compared to other cloud storage applications which offer similar features at no cost

Good for sharing files, not for editing in real time

2019-11-10

While Sync is useful for me and my team, I find it far inferior to Google Drive as a file sharing software.

Pros

The desktop application is handy for quick access to the files.

Cons

While the desktop application is great, the browser version of Sync and the mobile app are very glitchy and almost impossible to use.

Secure and Affordable Cloud Storage

2019-12-27

We use Sync.com successfully to organize our large documents and files that we share with clients.

Pros

This cloud storage service is simple, affordable, and secure.

Cons

It's not as ubiquitous, so we usually ask our client to create the free account with Sync.com first to start sharing their files with us.

Encryption is great

2018-06-01

Pros

Absolutely no fear of losing any files. Easy file upload.

Cons

This offers very limited free storage as compared to google drive or a few other freely available tools. 5GB is certainly not sufficient in today's digital world.

Easy file sharing

2019-03-19

The only downside I find is the conflicted files when two or more people are working on a document at the same time.

Pros

. - Real-time update of documents across machines, cloud, time zones and continents.

Cons

. - It's hard to go over the work on a conflicted file when two people had the same document open at the same time and saved changes to it.

Easy filesharing syncing and backup

2020-11-11

I use it to back up the companies Documents and share them across three computers.

Pros

You can try it out for free for ever as long as you want if you do not need too much storage space or too may concurrent links or too much history saving.

Cons

Nothing really. You cannot expect to get more than 15GB free which is what they offer if you recruit 10 more people.

Sync.com- for perfect sync

2019-10-22

If you are basic Dropbox or One drive user, just switch on to the Sync.com for hassle-free cloud service with high-security measures and real-time protection. Just try it. Highly recommended.

Pros

Still, we can manage our files with any of our devices and the mobile version is really helpful to keep our files up to date.

Cons

It's really hard to find cons for this cloud service. Hope the subscriptions fees will be reduced in future in order to compete for cloud service kings such as Dropbox and Google Drive. The free plan should be more in future to attract newcomers.

Secure and affordable file sharing.

2020-10-12

We needed a file storage system that was more secure than Google Drive, and affordable.

Pros

We share files among a team and needed a solution that would allow us keep doing that in a user-friendly way.

Cons

There are a few quirks that are challenging - for example, you can't rename top-level folders for a whole team that are shared with a team, and that moving files breaks the link to those files.

After 1 year using Pro version of Dropbox and Sync, I now only use Sync.com

2017-05-13

Pros

Sync also has a vault feature, which is a nice for backup files and long term storage of files that you want to keep safe and don't need to work with everyday.

Cons

If you try to change too many file or folder names in too short a time, Sync starts to produce conflicting files, especially if you have two computers syncing to the cloud at the same time.

Don't even think about these guys

2019-03-02

I have no idea how anyone uses this product. it is barely functional. I am stuck with a 5 mbps download speed.

Pros

I wish I had something to fill in here, but I don't. Every time I try to work with this product, it is just hours of frustration....

Cons

No version control. No ability to upload or download only.

Great free 5GB cloud backup

2020-03-18

Sync has given me the safety of mind to know that my documents are backed up on a free cloud service.

Pros

When Our external hard drive broke we thought it was time to look into cloud storage. Sync allows for a free 5GB cloud storage back up perfect for small businesses.

Cons

While the free cloud back up is nice you use it by storing items in a Sync folder and in order to safely do this that requires you to have an entire extra copy of the data sitting in the Sync folder using twice the space on your computer.

Started off great but have fallen fast

2020-05-25

Once you have files (we are at 120GB of 2TB quota) and the system stops syncing across devices completely.

Pros

Affordable pricing, easy to use system, supports multiple platform.

Cons

Doesn't work for teams with lots of files. Syncing files between computers take days.

Easy, Secure and Priced Right. What isn't there to like?

2018-06-08

Pros

Another thing going for Sync is it is a secure storage system.

Cons

The only one that comes to mind is, when a directory is shared between several users/computers, it can take a moment after opening a directory on the computer for it to be updated to show the new files in it. But just a few seconds so nothing major.

Excellent Storage Solution

2019-06-26

Pros

We also like that we can have multiple computers in our office sync together, so any one of us can be working on any file and instantly we all have the updated versions of the files.

Cons

When the files are uploading/syncing across multiple machines, it does seem to slow our internet down significantly.

Great cloud alternative

2018-10-09

Pros

It's a cloud service that is well-priced and with many great security features for sharing files.

It still needs to have some features that other famous cloud providers have, like unlimited file batch upload from a smartphone.

Excellent security

2018-11-14

Pros

First and foremost, I like that this backup service uses end to end encryption and with servers in Canada. The service works well and usually has a small memory footprint on my mac.

Cons

The only thing I miss is on the iOS app is a search function.
