SAN MATEO, Calif. Nov. 10, 2010 –/– SugarSync Inc., makers of the award-winning SugarSync file sync, online backup and file sharing service, today announced it has more than doubled its free service offering, and unveiled a new, free 5 GB plan. The upgraded plan allows consumers to manage their important data, anytime, anywhere, and now from any device. With the most generous, free sync-and-share offering for the Personal Cloud, consumers can securely backup and instantly access all of their most important files—thousands of documents, photos, songs, or other valued content—from any device they choose, regardless of their operating system or handset preference.

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.

SugarSync is the only service that provides customers a complete Personal Cloud. It allows users the ability to upload and sync data from any folder on their computer. It is also the only service that offers such broad device and OS support.

Those interested in setting up their own Personal Cloud service can get started with a free account by visiting For persons with greater file storage needs, SugarSync offers a free 30-day trial for plans starting at 30 GB for just $4.99/month. Those who refer their family, friends and colleagues to sign up for a free, 5 GB SugarSync account will be rewarded with 500 MB for each referral, or receive 10 GB of additional storage for every paid subscriber via the Company’s “Double Bonus” referral program. (Terms and conditions apply.)
