    So I work from two different computers(one at home and one at the office) and am looking at both sugar sync and dropbox as a way to sync my files. I know that both have apps to sync to your iphone but I'm wondering if anyone has used them and has thoughts on which one is better?

    Never used SS, but could not possibly be happier with Dropbox. (PM me for a referral!)

    Both desperately need editing abilities for documents in their apps. Use SugarSync if you want to backup/sync multiple folders, i.e. Documents, Pictures, Outlook folders.

    Sugar Sync Orphaned Files

    Have tried SS based on Apple forum comments. Very disappointed with drawback of orphaned photo files after a hard drive crash. I can't delete them and it's eating up 3 GB of SS storage. SS Support states this is Expected Behavior!
    Here's the link to the problem:

    Been using Dropbox for a while and I love it. Having the iPhone app to go with it is really handy and I also send people some files using the public sharing folder

    one really good thing about dropbox is the unlimited version feature. Where I can go back 2 months later and find the version of the file I need after I replaced it. this has saved me so many times it is worth the extra 30 a year. I do wish dropbox would just link to folders though but it is not that big of a deal.
