    Please provide a HP webOS client.

    It`s easier than you might think... Two options:

    - use PhoneGap to make one client for many platforms:

    - use the new webOS 2.0 SDK, where you can reuse parts of the code from other platforms:

    Password protecting synced folders184.8

    Password protection of synced folders to prevent access by unintended remote users
    Content:

    I am backing up files on several off-site computers that I own, but that other people have access to through the day. It seems logical to me that I should be able to password-protect synced files and folders so that random people couldn't access all my shared files via one of these remote machines. Please create this feature! Thanks! :)

    Password prompting for Sugarsync Manager294.7

    Title:
    Password prompting for Sugarsync Manager
    Summary:
    Is there an option to turn on login prompting so that sugarsync manager on my work pc requests a password before starting?
    Content:

    My apologies if this topic has been brought up before on this forum, but I did a brief keyword search for 'password' and couldn't find any discussions.  I was wondering if there is an option to add password prompting to the manager since my work PC can be accessed by other people in the office.  If that feature is there, then great! Would somebody kind enough show me how to switch it on? I looked everywhere I could think of but with no luck.  Otherwise, it would be great to have that in the next update.

     

    Thanks,

    Run SugarSync as Windows Service.315.0

    Run SugarSync as Windows Service.
    Summary:
    Business clients need this to run as a service so after reboots or logoffs it continues running.
    Content:

    I'd like to ask for the option to install the software as a service, with a pre-defined user so when we install this on servers that shouldn't always have an account logged in, that folders are still being synched.

    This is one of those features thats pretty much make or break for businesses that want to keep certain local shared folders available to users who travel and still need to work with those back in the office seemlessly.

    Regards,

    Jonathan

    Eliminate need for Windows admin rights?155.0

    Title:
    Eliminate need for Windows admin rights?
    Summary:
    Suggest removing the need to have Windows admin rights to install and use SugarSync
    Content:

    Is it absolutely necessary for SugarSync to require administrative rights to install and run on Microsoft Windows? I'm in a corporate work environment, do not have administrative rights on my work machine, plus have to deal with a proxy server with basic HTTP authentication. This limits what software I can install on my own and use. Insynq installs and operates without any issues, and DropBox also works (albeit with missing contextual menu commands due to lack of admin rights during the install). SugarSync—I can't even begin to install because of the admin rights issue. Is there a workaround, or is this something you can address in a future release of the Windows client?

    SugarSync Drive cacheing Web Archive files to my local hard...1075.0

    SugarSync Drive cacheing Web Archive files to my local hard drive
    Summary:
    SugarSync Drive cacheing Web Archive files to my local hard drive
    Content:

     

    Hello,

    Not sure if others are noticing this. I'm having an issue with the new SugarSync Drive in 2.0. Specifically, when I launch the SS Drive and start browsing my Web Archive, the SS 2.0 client automatically downloads/caches any file that I select even if I don't open the file. 

    For example, I open the Mac Finder, click on the new SugarSync drive, go into the Web Archive, go into a sub-folder and then select a file. I haven't opened the file. I only selected the file so I could see how big it is. However in the background, SS 2.0 starts to download/cache the entire file. The local cached file is stored in the following folder:

    ~/Library/Application Support/SugarSync/TEMPMAPPEDFOLDERS/1/ 

    This is, of course, a big problem. The whole point of the Web Archive is to upload files/folders which do not sync locally. Sometimes I'm storing very big files in the Web Archive. If the SugarSync drive just starts to download all of the files from the Web Archive - even if I haven't opened the file - then it defeats the purpose of the Web Archive.

    Is anyone else experiencing this?

    Thanks,

    Aslam

    Bring back "empty trash can" command
    Summary:
    Hey I know, let's "upgrade" our software by removing required capabilities
    Content:

    How the fuck do software companies constantly put out garbage with flaws so blaringly fucking obvious? Do you morons have some policy that says thou shall not use the software at all once it's done? No testing, just code, code, code... release! Let's not use it, we're pretty sure it's gonna be useful...

    Why would you remove the option to permanently delete all the deleted files at once? And to top it off, you amazingly also removed the "select all" feature from the new web interface, so now you can't even permanently delete 100 or so files at a time. Dude, sugarsync's retardedness has blown my mind.
