To quit SugarSync, please contact our Support Team. We will need your Account Info (email address and password) as well as a valid reason why you want to cancel your account [Articles]. Your files are yours and belong to you even after you leave SugarSync so we will not delete them for you but we can remove all traces of your account on our servers. Please note that canceling your account does not automatically erase data on devices or in-app because each device is responsible for its own data management.

We recently added an option for users to “Clear Camera Roll” which removes and erases photos from a mobile device’s photo roll if they have been backed up to SugarSync. This is a useful tool for some of our users because it allows them to delete sensitive or personal photos from their device’s photo roll but keep the copies in SugarSync at the same time.

Why does my browser get reset?

If you are using Chrome as your default browser, we have noticed that sometimes after installing new extensions on Chrome, Safari will be removed as a secondary option and replaced with Chrome on macOS [Articles]. We’ve tracked this issue down to an old version of Firefox Sync Server which is our plug-in for browsing synchronization; if you’re running OS X 10.5 (Leopard), we recommend updating Firefox Sync Server to the latest version which fixes this problem. There are also some known issues with Firefox Sync Server in OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) [Articles] and 10.7 (Lion) [Articles].

This problem is usually caused by an error in SugarSync’s server-side sync engine. We’ve identified the root cause of this issue and are working to find a fix as soon as possible. In the meantime, we recommend using your computer or a different mobile device to move your files around, because it is most likely that they will display correctly there without any interference from our servers. If you’re unable to access the files on your computer but can access them on your other devices, then please contact Support so we can fix the problem for you!

My device was wiped, my browser reset or something else happened and I don’t know how to fix it – what should I do?

If you’re having problems with SugarSync and some files on your mobile device have disappeared or an extension has been added which has caused Safari to be reset as a secondary browser, there are some easy steps you can take to get back up and running again before contacting us:

Confirm that all your files are still available in the SugarSync web interface

If you’re using a Mac, try uninstalling and reinstalling the extension. You’ll find it under Preferences in Safari > Extensions. It’s called “SugarSync Browser Extension” [Articles].

Try turning off syncing of individual files or folders on your computer that are missing from your mobile device. To do this, go to My Computer > Preferences and turn off Syncing for the file(s) that aren’t showing up on your mobile devices. Then restart SugarSync and open those files/folders from the local folder directly instead of opening them through SugarSync so that they can be backed up again.
