MEGA is a popular file hosting web site which allows for different levels of cloud storage. MEGAsync is the official client offered by the company.
With MEGAsync, you are given a tool to synchronize your PC with your file storage hosted at MEGA. As a cloud service, you may also use it to share files with the world for free.
The service allows you to customize your cloud account and within it, you may create directories in which to store your files. All types of files are supported whether it be audio files, Word documents or photographs.
MEGAsync can be run either as "Full account sync" which synchronizes your entire cloud drive or simply a "Selective sync" which allows you to specify which folders should be synchronized. The "Selective sync" feature allows you to mirror a directory to a MEGA cloud directory.
The program runs in the background and doesn't create much noise or use many system resources. Syncing doesn't take long, depending on your Internet connection.
The interface of MEGAsync includes 5 different tabs which include Account, Syncs, Bandwidth, Proxy and Advanced which are all pretty self-explanatory. The advanced settings allow you to specify file exclusions and also includes an option to run a full scan.
Since MEGA runs a free service which includes 50GB of storage space on the MEGA cloud and there is no payment required for the lowest tier making it an extremely popular option.
Overall, MEGA is definitely an attractive option for anybody wanting a free 50GB of storage and naturally the freeware MEGAsync application allows you to easily keep your stuff up-to-date.Features and highlights
