Syncplicity Some time back I wrote an article on Syncplicity A tryst with Syncplicity (Backup and Sync Tool) A tryst with Syncplicity (Backup and Sync Tool) Read More . First off let me start off by making clear the cheers/boos system that I used as some people have asked about it.

So the cheers/boos system worked like this: A feature that I liked and/or worked as claimed on the Syncplicity site was given a cheer, a feature on which I saw a potential room for improvement was given a boo. The score at the end of each bullet point represented the cumulative score which means that the total of cheers and boos up till that point. I apologize if you found it hard to comprehend. (damn the cumulative system! From next time I will not be using cumulative scores).

With that clear and out of the way I have some good news for you all:

    1. First off Syncplicity now integrates with Scribd, Zoho, and Picnik which means that you can now view and edit documents using Scribd’s iPaper and Zoho’s tools. Picnik on the other hand allows you to quickly edit photos online from any web browser.

    2. You can now share your files without requiring the other person (whom you are sharing with) to have a Syncplicity account.

    3. The pricing for Syncplicity is out, you can find the details here. This may or may not be good news according to the way you choose to see it.

    4. Last but by no means least we have a little giveaway for our readers. The Syncplicity team is offering a little extra gift to our wonderful readers. Here are the details: The first 500 users who sign up with the code MAKEUSE9 will start with 3GB (instead of 2GB) and if you decide to sign up with a subscription, you ‘ll start with 45GB instead of 40GB. Alternatively you can use follow this link to skip entering the intro code.

One little mention here that in case you didn’t notice – the points that got a boo in the last article have now all been corrected and/or improved by Syncplicity (Kudos!) so now its “cheers” all the way for Syncplicity!

      No, syncplicity doesn't work with outlook.pst, you get this error message:

      Failed hashing 'C:\Users\daniel\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook.pst': System.IO.IOException: The process cannot access the file because another process has locked a portion of the file.

      Same thing trying to sync with Quicken, "locked file".

    Do you know if this works with Outlook .pst files? Would be great if it did. Windows Live Mesh currently doesn't and it would be great to have a free service that synced my Outlook on my desktop and laptop computers. Currently I am using something called Syncing.net but it is a paid service.
