An update for SugarSync version 2.0 has been released. This online storage and synchronization service is comparable to services such as Dropbox, Google Drive, SkyDrive and iCloud. The program can be used to backup or easily access files from different places. A free account gives access to 5GB of storage, with options to expand it. For a small compensation this can be 60GB, 100GB or even 250GB. More information about the possibilities of SugarSync is here can be found and compared with other services here.
Clients exist for various mobile platforms, Windows and OS X, but not yet for Linux. In addition, there is a Outlook plugin. In version 2.0, it has become easier to store and share folders in the cloud. Furthermore, a search function has been added and the saved files now appear as a drive in Apple’s Finder or Windows Explorer. Finally, the user interface and web app have also been overhauled and given a new look. This update includes a notification when more than 10 percent of the storage capacity is in use for deleted items and support for Windows 8.1 has been added.
Update: SugarSync has indicated in an email that it will only use paid subscriptions as of February 2014 and that it will stop the free service.

- Deleted Items and Storage Quota Management
We have made it easier to distinguish storage space used by deleted items vis-a-vis your data. If more than 10% your storage quota is occupied by deleted items you will see a notification at the bottom of the client informing you of how much storage is occupied by deleted items and how to reclaim that storage. At any time you can click on the storage meter and see the split.
