Never, ever again.

I cannot think of a product worse than SugarSync whether on iOS, OS X, or Windows. Their updates always wing up with issues, especially on the UI. They are a very costly solution. Subscriptions are a pain, and you have to jump through hoops to prove that you have deleted all occurrences of the software before they will even entertain a refund and generally, they do not refund your money, so you are stuck with them for the length of the subscription.

More than this issue however was the fact that over half of my archive storage was impacted when they allowed viruses ti infect my files. Most of those could never be recovered.

My recommendation, walk away from SugarSync. Use a more reliable system like Dropbox, Apple iCloud, MS One Drive, or Google Drive. I have never had problems with these and have used them for over four years now..

Was once better than Dropbox

I had to walk away because long-term bugs and needed features never materialized. However, my primary concern was the appearance of lax security. A general support inquiry I opened was replied to with enough specificity to give the appearance that their staff had unfettered visibility of my directories and files. This may have changed since then but it was alarming enough for me to move files off the service.
At one time (circa 2010 or so) SugarSync had a cutting edge product that worked as marketed. Then they reengineered the sync engine and everything went south from there. Like many I remained longer than I wanted due to the forced renewals and the impression that my “no renew” flag was somehow removed during a GUI redesign.

Very useful app

SugarSync is a very useful and easy to use app. I have been using this app for several years and it makes my life easier. All documents and photos are automatically loaded from one computer to the other and from my iPhone to computer. When I purchased a new computer it was so easy to download all my files to the new computer from SugarSync.
