Sync is a service I discovered when for some strange reason the Personal Vault disappeared from my desktop Onedrive. Using Duckduckgo to search for secure alternatives for my sensitive, personal documents, I wanted something that would give a reasonable amount of free space for documents that did not take up much room.
I could have stored them in Google Drive but I feel that I might as well made them into roadside billboards as far as privacy is concerned and Dropbox still offers only a tawdry 2GB free space since the dawn of time. My searches came up with Sync as the top choice every time, so I decided to give it a try.
Signing up is simplicity itself and once logged in you have access to 5GB of storage with an option to walk through other steps such as creating folders, uploading files, etc to get an additional 1GB. The Sync interface is a typical file explorer style design which means dealing with the service is very simple.
As you would expect you can share individual files or entire folders and Sync syncs instantaneously with apps on mobile devices.
Sync Data Encryption
Data is protected by end-to-end encryption. Data is replicated across multiple SSAE 16 type 2 certified data centre locations with SAS RAID storage, automatic fail-over, and a 99.9% or better uptime SLA. Put in simple English, no-one not even Sync can see your data.

Sync’s pricing is among the most competitive and value for money around. Click here for full details.
To summarise, Sync is an excellent secure online service that is not only easy to use but cost-wise the best value for money you can get.
