Video: DropBox vs SugarSync
Last updated: January 28, 2019
Dropbox is a Web-based file hosting service that uses cloud computing to enable users to store and share files and folders with others across the Internet using file synchronization. There are both free and paid services, each with varying options. In comparison to similar services, Dropbox offers a relatively large number of user clients across a variety of desktop and mobile operating systems. DropBox alternatives for enterprise are: Box, Microsoft SharePoint, Office 365.
SugarSync makes it easy to backup, share and access your files, anytime, anywhere. With SugarSync you get online cloud storage for all your files — documents, music, photos, and video. When you make a change or add files on any of your PC or Mac computers, SugarSync automatically syncs your files to the cloud, where you can access them from any Internet-connected device — including your smartphone or iPad.
Face to face in the news:
2015 - Dropbox for Windows Phone is now available - a new advantage over SugarSync
Right after Microsoft previewed Windows 10 for computers, tablets and phones, Dropbox launches an app for Windows Phone. The free app offers 2GB of Dropbox storage for new users and can automatically back up all of files on your device, just as it can for Apple iOS and Google Android. You can mark files or folders as favorites while offline and later view them when back online. You can share files or folders with a link, backup photos automatically right after snapping them, and favorite files for offline access. And if you have Dropbox accounts for both personal and business use, you can manage them separately within the app.
