I’m sure a good 90% or more of you have lost files on your computer due to a hard drive crash or by accident. I recently found a really cool program/online account that will eliminate the fear of losing files again.
Everyone has probably heard of online storage sites. Well, this is an online storage site but it’s also a syncing site. Not only are you backing up your files, but your files are synced in real time as well.
This works perfectly for syncing computers within your home or if you have partners/employees that are remotely working from a different office or from home.
Simply set up a folder/multiple folders on your computer to be “synced” and whatever changes happen within that folder (moving, adding, deleting, changing files) are automatically updated on every computer that’s synced. All of this happens instantly! It’s really an amazing setup.
I tested it out with two laptops side by side that I “synced”. I drug a file into my “synced” folder on laptop 1 and it immediately showed up in the “synced” folder on laptop 2. I deleted the file and it immediately disappeared. It works perfectly for my business because I have employees that work in the field and rarely come to the office. We always need to share files and pictures which can be close to impossible through email with large files.
It’s called SugarSync. They have free accounts that have 2 gigabytes of storage and it’s only $4.99/month for 30 gigabytes of storage. Check it out.
