For example, SugarSync 30 GB is the least expensive plan above, and may be the best fit for you if you want to have a fair amount of storage space to backup multiple devices for the lowest available price.

On the other hand, MozyHome 50 GB offers 20 GB more storage space for only $1 more, so if you only plan to backup 1 computer, then this may be the best value for your situation.

For most individual home users, one of the above options should be a good fit, whether your priority is price, backing up multiple devices, or having a lot of storage space.

    Good review – here are a few recent changes as of June 2011:
    You get 5GB of space with the FREE version, but now there is no restriction to the number of computers you can sync/backup (up from 2).
    It gives you the ability to upload and sync any folder on your computer.
    It is the only service that offers such a broad device and OS support with apps for BlackBerry, Android, iPhone/iPad, Symbian, not to mention your computer!

    Also if you use the below referral code you get a bonus 500MB extra on top of your Free 5GB!

    Hope it helps someone.
