      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.

      Open-sourced, easy to install and maintain, close to feature parity with Dropbox (except Paper).

      Nextcloud is totally private with a great variety of additional apps, to customize the server fully to your personal needs. And it's all free (if you host it yourself). And there is even no limitations for storage space. They even offer free apps/ clients for Android, iOS and Windows (Phone). Contacts, (shared) Calendars, internal Chat, live collaboration on office documents and soon to come end-to-end encryption - what else would you need?!

      It has more space than what drop box provides. Plus all the google Services. But Windows - Backup and Sync app is slow. Dropbox app for windows is much better.

      First of all, Drive is integrated to the core of Android. The base storage is 5GB which is more than double than Dropbox. The sharing features are superior on Drive including ownership. Also I got the 1TB storage promo from Google.

      Love, love, love Mega. Lots of space and fast servers. Plus they have a great Linux client with a simple GUI. You aren't going to do a lot of sharing with 10 GB per month bandwidth, but it's perfect for storage and syncing files with a tablet or phone.

      pCloud is a good alternative to Dropbox because it offers the same functionality with the following benefits: 1. It offers the option of an encrypted folder, so even pCloud employees can't see or steal your data; 2. pCloud is based in Switzerland where privacy rules are far stronger than in the US. 3. pCloud offers a larger amount of free space (5GB vs 2GB from Dropbox.)

      Data privacy is far better than Dropbox, and the encrypted folder works well. It acts just like a drive connected to your PC, not a folder, so the file is stored directly in your cloud account, and not at all on your device. When you het the larger drives (I have the 2TB), it allows me to run the Built-in backup utilities on the web interface to back up Dropbox, facebook, Google Drive and Google Photo's, giving me an extra level of redundancy in my backups.

      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.)

      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.
