Box Sync gives you a quick and intuitive way to selectively sync your files across all of your devices, so you always have access to what you need when you need it. Take advantage of easy drag-and-drop techniques to keep your files organized with just a few clicks through this app's handy interface.

Pros

Add and remove: Adding and removing files from your Box couldn't be easier through this program's handy drag-and-drop feature. Just drop in the files you want to sync, and you'll quickly see them on all of your other devices. And to save space, you can just as easily remove files from your Box Sync folder when you don't need urgent access to them anymore.

Direct sharing: This app also supports quick direct sharing of files with friends and colleagues. All you have to do is add users to your Homegroup, and then you can choose whether they can access the files as Read Only or as Read and Write. You can also share with individual users if you have something you don't want to send out to the whole group.

Cons

Crashes: The app did crash several times during testing when we tried to open the Box folder. Restarting the program and trying again always fixed the problem, but it could get a little frustrating if it continues happening.

Bottom Line

Box Sync is a convenient way to keep the files you need most right at your fingertips. The basic mechanics for adding and removing files make it very smooth to use, and the auto-sharing features facilitate collaboration nicely. The app is free for one user with up to 10GB of storage and a maximum file upload size of 250MB. Pricing and storage options increase from there, but all are available to try for free for 14 days.
