    I really don't get the point of this article's title! Why need an alternative to a solution when they give nothing more and the original one has all what the so called alternatives has got. They are all good, but hwy use them instead of the other?

      @rainvibe: good question :) Point of this article is to give alternatives of a popular service. Why would someone need alternatives? There could be multiple reasons. How about someone just wants more free storage than what dropbox provides, or wants to remotely access their computer, or have already exhausted free limit of Dropbox and want to add another service, or Dropbox simply doesn't works for them.

      By the way – Just today, many people have landed on this article from Google by searching for Dropbox alternatives. So, if people are searching for something like this, I guess there is a need for it :)

    You forgot one huge saving grace for Dropbox that I know Sugarsync at least does not have.

    Whether its free or you pay for it, it will synchronize with another dropbox on the same account at LAN speed over your 100 or gigabit switch instead of uploading to the cloud, then downloading back over your same internet connection to your laptop, or mom’s computer, or kids computer, etc.

    I have 25GB of data in dropbox and was quite surprised that it took just 5 minutes to add to my Laptop when I installed it the first time.

    What about Humyo.com 10GB free!

    I used sugarsync for many years and its not easy to use, it took me sometime to use it effeciently–after 4 years I deleted the account recently.
