    Unacceptable!!! The latest version ( is worse than ever: It changed the name of hundred of files on my computer from the original "filename.ext" to "filename (from computername).ext". It took me hours to fix this. How can they sell a cloud backup program that changes the user's filenames on the original computer.

    Major issue: This version renames some files on the HD. That should be an absolute no-no: A backup software should NEVER change filenames on the source side. Support has acknowledge the issue but no resolution in sight yet.

    SugarSync no longer offers free storage, it is now a paid product only. They sent me an email and said if I didn't upgrade to a paid plan my files would be deleted, I didn't upgrade and now my account is gone. They only offer 30-day free trial for new accounts and if you don't upgrade to a paid plan they will delete your account after 30 days. So don't bother if you want to use a free online storage service. Use Google Drive, OneDrive, ADrive or Mega.
