    ownCloud is the original and far more stable than Nextcloud.

  3. Put your files into your Dropbox on one computer, and they'll be instantly available on any of your other computers that also have Dropbox installed.

    Dropbox vs Nextcloud opinions
    This alternative is disputed. Dropbox is still a legitimate alternative to Nextcloud, but it might have issues that some users think are important.

    Dropbox isn't self-hosted, has a 2 GB limit and is just for storage, while nextcloud is a full self-hosted cloud.

    Dropbox is a SaaS offering from an entity under control and compelled to cooperate with United States military and intelligence programs, not an on-prem solution. Your data is subject to wide-scale mass surveillance and tampering under USA PRISM and similar violations of online privacy and security and the whim of entities that do not honor legal due process.

    NextCloud is groupware. MEGA is a file-sync storage solution. Just because they have overlapping functionality, does NOT make them interchangeable.

    pCloud advertises itself as being a Swiss company with Swiss privacy laws, but if you email them or check the IP of the server they use US-based servers. Buyer beware.

    Seafile is a more focussed, nimbler sync & share solution compared to Nextcloud (and the original ownCloud) that excels in performance and stability.
