Use the app or the online version with writing groups or blog collaborators.

Collaborate with colleagues or share ideas and photos with friends and family, all with the peace of mind that your files remain private.
SugarSync backs up your files, how you want them backed up — and how you want them organized. Some system backups make it difficult to choose which files to save. Users might only be interested in backing up certain types of files — like photos or contracts — while others might want their entire system saved regularly. SugarSync lets you back up your files using your existing file structure, so you can choose what you want saved — and find what you need when going through your stored files.
