Synchronize Individual Folders With SugarSync May 10, 2012Posted by stuffilikenet in Awesome, Geek Stuff.
As an actual geek (as opposed to a poser geek, which is what I usually am) I need to sync my Projects folder within Visual Studio 2008 and 2010 with my company desktop, company laptop and my home computer You would not believe how convoluted this is between the various (free) file services this is, involving setting up some special folder that I have to remember to dump the synced files to, to retrieve later and remember where on the next computer to put them. Yuck. I made batch files to do this for me, but there should be I better way….
There is. SugarSync lets me specify which folder gets backed up, and to what computer’s folder. I can upload file by mail. I can files share through public links like this one, my Spanish Flashcards for WinCE 5.0. It provides an app for your Windows Mobile devices, including my ancient phone.
And its Five Gigs of Storage for free (so far). That includes the dictionary files for my next two projects, and probably the third project as well. One of the creepy things they do, though, is ask to be given access to your Gmail, Yahoo! Hotmail or AOL(?) mail accounts to solicit your friends to become users also…this is optional, but they don’t offer you a way to do this on a person-by-person basis, which I would do.
