Some Extra Gigabytes from SugarSync

SugarSync, makers of the award-winning SugarSync file sync, online backup and file sharing service, announced it has more than doubled its free service offering, and unveiled a new, free 5 GB plan.

Prior to this 5 GB plan being initiated, SugarSync offered a free 2 GB account. Over the next day, existing SugarSync users on the 2 GB service will be upgraded to a 5 GB account (no action required by users). The enhanced service includes the ability to sync and access 5 GB worth of data from an unlimited number of devices.

"Statistics show people's storage needs double every two years so this larger plan is better suited for today's mobile consumer," said Laura Yecies, SugarSync CEO. "We believe our free 5 GB service will give consumers a true taste of how SugarSync can support their fast-growing digital lives by managing their data in their own Personal Cloud. This is by far the most robust free, Cloud-based service for consumers on the market."

SugarSync works with a wide variety of mobile devices, from laptops to BlackBerry, Android-based phones and iPhones, and today's most popular tablets, such as the iPad and Samsung Galaxy.
