SugarSync is a worthy Dropbox competitor, offering finer-grained file management tools and more mobile app access. Now it’s added another convenient feature: send a file to your personal SugarSync address, and your attachment is synced to your account.
It works just like the “secret email” that services like Flickr or Evernote provide — it’s an address you don’t share with anybody but your email client, and it only synchronises to your own account. Attach as much as your outgoing mail will allow, and it shows up in an “Uploaded by Email” folder in your “Magic Briefcase”. The only limit is your account size, which is 2GB by default.
SugarSync pitches this tool as a way to help clean up and clear out file attachments, which is true for the small percentage of webmail users bumping up against their storage limits. For everyone else, it’s a convenient upload method when you’re not running SugarSync’s desktop software.
