What is SugarSync?

SugarSync is a service that actively syncs files across computers and other devices for file backup, access, syncing and sharing from a variety of operating systems. The Universal Sync platform is SugarSync's universal media synchronization engine. SugarSync also works as an online backup utility and users can access their data from a personalized subdomain on the SugarSync website under the structure of username.sugarsync.com. SugarSync differentiates itself from competitors by employing an integrated and intelligent automatic refresh of its sync. Unlike many competitors, SugarSync does not require users to schedule weekly updates of synced files. Instead, SugarSync constantly monitors changes to files—additions, deletions, edits—and syncs these changes with any other linked devices as well as the SugarSync servers.
