The best sync program forÂ Windows Users.
Iâ€™ve stumbled upon this blog post from CNet blogs, talks about a sync program called â€œSugarSyncâ€.Â Catchy name right?Â Well after reading the blog, I feel that it is rightfully named.Â For windows users who havenâ€™t really had this easy tool, It does taste like sugarâ€¦ stress free sugarâ€¦ zero (!) as Coke and Pepsi would call them.
Standard sync programs require both PCs to be turned on.Â SugarSync has something like a â€œclearing houseâ€ that accepts data from the online PC.Â Once the other PC goes online (even while the host is off-line), it gets the data from the â€œclearing houseâ€Â and syncs it from there.Â Too cool eh?
It costs $49 for a year with 10GB of space.Â $149 for a year with 100GB of space.Â It is made by SharpCast.Â Webware.com ran the same ratings as CNet, it is probably good.Â Go to www.sharpcast.com and try to download a trial copy.
Iâ€™m a 3-month old Mac user and I think this is very much like .Mac.Â While .Macâ€™s subscription is almost $100/year for 10GB of space, I went to ebay and got it for just $40.Â Still, I think SugarSync is aptly priced.Â I would like to see more feature coming up in the near future that would include some of .Macâ€™s powerful ones.Â How about email service, FTP service,Â web hosting service?Â Ah, Iâ€™m just a demanding fellow I guess.
Nonetheless, Iâ€™d say this is a good product by and by.
