Finding high-quality reasonably priced computer accessories is not possible in Ecuador. Since I run two blogs, two websites, and store all my business info on several computers, having good backup is crucial. Over the years, I’ve hand carried several hard disks back from the US to use as backup storage, but sooner or later they have failed, been damaged, or run out of space. This conundrum led me to use Sugarsync for sometime. I know this is not a technology blog, but my experience has been so poor with Sugarsync that it merits a posting.

When using just one computer, Sugarsync was a decent service. But as soon as I added multiple computers, I began getting improperly synced files, backups of backups all over the place, and it soon became unmanageable. For lack of a better solution, I stuck with it for some time, and used backup drives. Ultimately though, I was unsatisfied with these solutions.

Dropbox came around a few years ago and I began to play with their free plan. I finally subscribed to a 50 GB plan a few months ago, and it has worked flawlessly since then. If you’re looking for an online storage solution that’s easy to use, reasonably priced, and will work across all your devices and operating systems, I recommend Dropbox.
