SugarSync to Save all Your Media

SugarSync to Save all Your Media

One of the biggest downfalls to the digital age is the risk we all deal with of losing precious memories, such as photos.  Most backup methods are either costly or cumbersome, which results in files not being backed up.  When you have a hard drive failure or other loss, that lack of backup can be devastating.  One option, which is the one I use for all of my photos and files, is SugarSync.  SugarSync is a free program that allows you to automatically backup and synchronize files across multiple devices, such as your smartphone, tablet, laptop and desktop computer.

What I like best about SugarSync is the fact that before I even get a chance to look at a file I’ve saved, it is already queued for backup and on its way to the SugarSync servers.

When I take a picture on my Android phone, I need only wait a moment or two and I can open it on my computer for editing or posting to Facebook.  All of the files I designate on my Android and computer are backed up automatically, as soon as they’re created or edited.  How cool is that?

Surprisingly, you get all of these features for absolutely zero cost.  That’s a rare find these days, although I imagine there will be a fee eventually.  You get five gigs for free, and can refer friends and complete other tasks to get more storage.  If that isn’t enough, SugarSync has higher storage options, for a price. 

So if you are looking for a hands-free way to backup important files and photos, take a look at SugarSync.  I haven’t found a backup service I like better.
