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

    NextCloud is self hosted, so you control where your data is stored. Drive, on the other hand, stores your files without encryption on Google's servers. Is one of the simplest ways of replacing Drive.

    NextCloud is a fork of OwnCloud, features are almost the same, so take a look at both.

    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.
