0. phoneArena 25 Apr 2012, 07:46 posted on

Now the big three in Silicon Valley - Apple, Google and Microsoft - all have their own clouds to go along with their mobile operating systems.

I have finally decided to backup my files online and was confused with what to go with. I cannot risk loosing important files. I have tried various options Synctoy, Allwaysync, Toucan, dropbox, box, sugarsync. Box gives 50 gb but is essentially useless as the free version cannot sync.

Comparing Dropbox free and Sugarsync free:
* Dropbox gives 2gb, Sugarsync 5gb.
* Dropbox gives 500mb per successful referral, Sugarsync gives 2gb for inviting 20 friends, 500mb per successful referral, 10gb if they take up a paid account.
* Dropbox is easy, Sugarsync is just as easy but has more features.
* Dropbox syncs only the dropbox folder (there is a way around this, but all folders will still be uploaded to a single folder), Sugarsync can sync any folder and unlimited number of folders.
* Sugarsync lets you sync unlimited number of devices.
* Sugarsync can also stream music.

A big comparison chart is available here:http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/1080740/bigchart-7.jpeg
Sugarsync is the most feature rich, you can sync any folder. Sugaarsync allows to sync multiple computers and can sync or backup multiple computers. Dropbox is simple, but you cannot select which folders to sync (unless you use complicated symlins). Dropbox gives 2gb, Sugarsync 5gb, Dropbox gives 500mb per successful referral, Sugarsync gives 2gb for inviting 20 friends, 500mb per successful referral, 10gb if they take up a paid account.
I got the free space increased to 7.5gb within (5+0.5+2) minutes. Click this link to get started:http://bit.ly/KbjOKH . Get the 2gb by easily referring any 20 email ids
