Since I started my new workplace, here in my present academic institution in 2015 I have been along with my many colleagues experiencing cloud applications for syncing between different departments. At first, we were only with Dropbox, but we were not satisfying due to its changeability. My institution generally manages many promotions for student admission every year and due to this reason, my institution's department needs to use different combinations of software and hardware. Here, syncing is a very much crucial factor among other departmental devices while hosting a meeting with teachers and guardians as well. As we need to work with the same docs from different parts of the institution, when it comes to SugarSync, I usually overlook memorizing to transfer the file and necessary docs because they exist in any department. It is very terrible being forgotten to download the previous up-to-date necessary info while it is needed. It is also very much tough to collaborate with office colleagues with existing files when anyone is out of the office engaged in personal works. Here, to remove the barrier of communication and to be synchronized with colleagues, SugarSync can contribute an important role, allowing us to stay in our comfort zone keeping all the works in the cloud up-to-date.
- They’ll give you free storage and you can purchase it for about $5 a month for probably more than enough storage than you’ll ever need.
- SugarSync is free to try, they give you 5 gigabytes right out of the box and of course, you can add storage by getting your friends to sign up.
- What happens with SugarSync, you don’t create a new SugarSync folder that’s shared. Instead, you manage and share your existing folders, determine which ones on your devices you want to share, and then enable sharing from that.
- It’s a subtle but important difference in how it works because we have to manage the process a little bit more but it also means also SugarSync can possibly fit better into
- your productivity work style, especially if you’ve got a really good system of file
- SugarSync requires just a little bit more forethought.
When doing daily jobs, if you’re sharing large files, I think Dropbox works a lot better but if you have a system where you’re working within that system and you want to be able to work with that system and have certain folders that you have access to all the time then SugarSync might be just the ticket.
