Sugarsync is transitioning to paid-only plans, with the minimum plan being $75/60GB. This is more space than I need, so I'm looking for alternatives.

I've long preferred SugarSync to most of the other cloud backup providers because it allows me to keep my existing folder structure on two different computers, rather than having to put everything into a single "dropbox" folder and sync from there. I primarily use sugarsync to keep my 'documents' folder in sync between my home and work computers and ideally I'd like to keep doing this. I suppose I could just start using the dropbox folder as my documents folder, but it seems fiddly.
I'm not against paying for this service, but my folders are well under 10gigs so being forced to pay for 60gb does not sit well with me, especially since I can't (for instance) use that 60gb to sync iphoto or something.
So, any recommendations would be appreciated. I already have accounts with skydrive, google drive, dropbox, but as far as I can tell they all use the dropbox model of a universal folder that syncs, rather than working with your existing file system a la sugarsync.
