    • Nice alternative where you keep control over your data. Guest • Aug 2016 • 3 agrees and 1 disagrees 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 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Requires self-hosting, which can be a limit for many. Since a good knowledge of security related matters is mandatory, think twice before using it. However is the best alternative for those not looking for have their data hosted on a NSA server. Guest • Apr 2017 Disagree   Agree

    • 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 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Open-sourced, easy to install and maintain, close to feature parity with Dropbox (except Paper). PaourFeb 2017 Disagree   Agree
