About three years ago, San Diego had a terrible fire season that burned down many homes and displaced people who had to evacuate. We were one of them. We voluntarily evacuated since the smoke was aggravating my son’s breathing. I remember looking around my house and just thinking what am I going to take with me? Ultimately, it was just a few clothes, my laptop, and my photo albums. Then we piled our kids in the car and headed to a hotel in a safer area.
It was a scary time, and it’s made me think that I need to do more about backing up photos and digital files. A house fire or earthquake could happen so fast that all I can take are my kids. Or one of these days my computer may just crash and I’ll never be able to retrieve my photos and files.
So right after that I signed up for SugarSync. It’s a cloud-based system that syncs to a computer, tablet/iPad or smartphone like my iPhone and backs up files online. I loved this because SugarSync would back up my files periodically once I set it up so I didn’t have to worry about it. I also loved being able to access a file I saved on my home computer through my iPhone, and sharing files with my husband.
So I’m excited to offer SugarSync as a giveaway to one of my readers.
One winner will receive a 30 GB storage account (for storage of up to 3,000 documents, 6,000 photos and 6,000 songs) for one year ($49 value).
Here are all the cool features:
- Sync all files, documents, school papers, photos, videos, music etc, across all devices for easy access anytime, anywhere
- All data is backed up in the cloud for safe keeping
- Access all data from any browser on any computer
- Easily share files with colleagues, clients and teachers or photos and home videos with family and friends
SugarSync also offers 5GB FREE plus free mobile apps for iPad, iPhone, Android, Blackberry, WinMo and Symbian – so you can try it first before buying your own account. And here’s a great comparison chart that shows how SugarSync stacks up with other online storage options.

I received a 30 GB storage account for one-year like the one offered in the giveaway, but these opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to write this review. In fact, I have paid for membership to SugarSync on my own in the past and really liked the service.
