    Dropbox + Sugarsync - running both at the same time - good idea or bad idea?
    Will they both be thrashing my machine and eating up lots of CPU like a hungry monster? :)

    Thanks

    You can be specific about what each actually synchronizes so I don't see that as a CPU issue. However if using both over the Internet with one of the more substantial data plans to sync, I would wonder which gets priority or how well they share the upload bandwidth. Wouldn't be so good if one was always grabbing it to sync in the off-load times and the other just kept waiting and waiting for its turn.

    upload bandwidth not a problem for me

    cpu hogging is a problem though
    i read through one of sugarsyncs forum entries and one poster was saying that it sucked up cpu loads
    so was a little concerned

    intitially when starting off: ok... i'm ok to have it take cpu
    but then afterwards... i don't want it constantly running and taking up cpu!
