    I am looking for something like SugarSync, but something that does not store data in the cloud. I want to sync folders from my Incredbile to my PC and vice versa. Any suggestions?

    Thanks, but I am trying to eliminate the CLOUD. I want to simply sync between desktop and device without having my data sent to a third party.

    I believe Missing Sync does that. It's a paid app though.

    [edit]I could be wrong though, it may be cloud based.

    Sorry. I misunderstood. I did just stumble upon WifiBackup. It seems to do what you're looking for. I'll try it out myself and let you know. WifiBackup 2-Way w/ Scheduling v1.3.3 Application for Android | Productivity

    Just out of curiosity, why are you wanting to eliminate the cloud?

    I am going to try Missing Sync too. On Appbrain it says itunes and WMP files can sync via USB. I am looking to do more traditional folders. But it shouldn't make a difference if its music or other files...its all 1 and 0s.

    @A.non I don't feel comfortable with the cloud. There are too many clouds. It's very overcast. I don't know who to trust. There are too many third party services that use cloud their own servers for storage.

    Google, Keeper (Callpod), SpringPad, DropBox etc...

    I think my OCD is just getting to me.

    Fair enough. I'm on the complete opposite side in completely embracing the cloud. My entire phone from contacts to calendars to emails to pictures to apps to settings is all backed up in the could and I love it. I can definitely see where people would be concerned about the safety of their data though.
