(my first post be kind Smilie

Not the biggest deal in the world but I thought I would put it out there.

Do you remember SugarSync [sugarsync.com], the cloud file service that automatically synced folders between all your devices? When it first came out they offered a free account with 5 Gigs of space. The free account subscription ended many years ago and now the lowest tier is $7.49 / month. I loved the service until it became subscription.

Sync.com ["https] now also occupies that product space but offers Free 5 Gig accounts. In addition you get another free gig by doing simple steps once you have created your act ( upload a file, download desktop apps etc).

I know its not the most space in the world but I thought some people might benefit from a free SugarSync alternative.

- Thanks

Sorry if this has been out there before

I uploaded a file and didn't get the 7th GB. I tried downloading the iOS app and still no go on the 7th one. Can you be more specific on how to get it?

When I did mine, on the menu was a "Bonus" section. You had to complete 5 tasks (they were listed) to get the next Gig.

Hope this helps......

Is Sync.com legitimate? Would you trust them with your private data? I've never heard of them. But with a URL like Sync.com, they certainly sounds legit

I've had a Sync account since February of 2016 and have 6G there. But compared to other cloud storage places like pCloud, Hubic, Mega, et al where you can get from 20G-50G for free, the 5G is kinda paltry, so I don't use it. I log in every 6-months or so to keep it alive, but otherwise ignore it.

Do some searching outside the United States, and there are systems with even more free space, so long as you are willing to spend a lot of time on translation websites... ;)
