Sharpcast, makers of the award-winning SugarSync service for backing up, sharing and accessing personal files and media, today gave its customers the ability to share any size file to any number of recipients, directly from their desktop, mobile phone or the Web. Ideal for sharing large home video files with friends and family and sending graphic-intensive presentations and project documents to coworkers, the large file-sharing functionality comes free with all SugarSync subscription plans.
SugarSync is available for free trial at http://www.sugarsync.com.
SugarSync's large file sharing feature overcomes the limitations of email programs and is faster and more efficient than manually uploading files to FTP sites. SugarSync users can now simply click on any file from within the SugarSync desktop, Web, or mobile applications to send any size file -- even if the computer hosting the original file is turned off. Because SugarSync backs up files into a secure personal website that's always accessible there is no need to leave computers on to be able to share and view backed up files.
The ability to send any size file from a mobile phone makes SugarSync stand out from other large file-sharing products. Sending large files from SugarSync on a mobile phone eliminates the hassles of booting up laptops and searching for WiFi hotspots in order to quickly send a large file while on the go.
SugarSync accomplishes large file sending by providing recipients with a link they can use to access the file for 21 days. No SugarSync program or subscription plan is required to receive files.
Anyone can receive a file from SugarSync, but recipients of shared files can choose to sync received files to all their computers at once in a single click; store the file only in their Web vault, or simply view the file on the machine they're using at the time.
SugarSync is the first-ever solution that extends wireless "push" synchronization beyond the confines of enterprise email to all consumers, and the data types they care about like photos, documents, music and video. Built on the company's patent-pending Universal Synchronization Platform, SugarSync's powerful software-service combination gives people the easiest way to keep digital media and files automatically in sync across multiple computers, backed up online and remotely accessible from their mobile phones or through any Web browser.
