    Free Personal Mac Windows Linux Android iPhone ... Blackberry Android Tablet iPad Self-Hosted Cloudron

    • OwnCloud is self hosted, not a ready to use solution for everyone. Guest • Jun 2016 Disagree   Agree
    • Nice alternative where you keep control over your data. Guest • Aug 2016 Disagree   Agree
    • OwnCloud was an excellent Dropbox alternative, particularly if you're setting up your own server and being in control of your own data, rather than giving it up to some giant corporation. However, ownCloud has now been forked into NextCloud, and early indications are that NextCloud will be the more successful long-term project to go for. Keep your eyes peeled, but don't not check out NextCloud as well as this. JohnFastmanDec 2016 Disagree   Agree
  • MEGA icon

    MEGA

    You hold the security keys for 50 GB free storage, unlimited desktop sync bandwidth, and 10 GB per month of free bandwidth for sharing with other accounts.

    • MEGA ostensibly offer a more privacy-oriented solution. They give you 50GB for "free" and say that your files are encrypted before they leave your machine, and therefore you benefit from end-to-end encryption. This would be a good model, for sure. But Mega has also had weird controversies, slow speeds and security flaws found in its code. Go for Sync.com, Tresorit or Spideroak instead. JohnFastmanDec 2016 Disagree   Agree
    • MEGA feels more like a file-sharing site. Rather than a sync tool. Guest • Jun 2015 Disagree   Agree

    Open Source Mac Windows Linux Web / Cloud Android ... iPhone Android Tablet iPad Self-Hosted Cloudron

    • If you don't mind setting up your own server, NextCloud is a great Dropbox alternative because: 1) it's open source, 2) you control your data, 3) the limit of your storage is determined only by the limit of your hard drive. Alternatively, you can get services to host a NextCloud install on their servers for you, but then you give that service access to your data. Unless you encrypt client side with something like Cryptomator first. JohnFastmanDec 2016 Disagree   Agree
    • Open-sourced, easy to install and maintain, close to feature parity with Dropbox (except Paper). PaourFeb 2017 Disagree   Agree

    • Although Seafile.de works with a slightly more complex client than does Dropbox, it also has more options. Importantly, it's open source, unlike Dropbox. Also, storing files using Seafile.de 's services mean your data is stored in Germany, which has stricter privacy laws. Note: Whilst Seafile does offer client-side encryption, at the time of writing this encrypts only file contents, not names or metadata. (Dropbox doesn't offer this at all, however.) Guest • Nov 2016 Disagree   Agree
    • Accessing your files via the website is very similar to Dropbox. Low prices, European privacy laws and open source clients compatible with Mac, Windows and Linux. Within Europe, upload speeds of the order of 1-2MB/s, download speeds 1-6MB/s depending on number of files. I got similar speeds with Dropbox in UK. Use together with Cryptomator for max privacy.

    • Tresorit does everything Dropbox does, except that it's far more secure and private. It operates in Switzerland and keeps your files encrypted in a way that even the employees can't see them. This means that if they were hacked, your information isn't going to be leaked and they can't pass it on to snooping three-letter agencies. Guest • Sep 2016 Disagree   Agree
    • End-to-end encrypted Dropbox alternative. Does what Dropbox, Google Drive and others do. But the files are only ever encrypted with passwords you keep, on your computer. So Tresorit doesn't get to see your private stuff. Expensive for individuals, though, but fantastic security. JohnFastmanNov 2016 Disagree   Agree
