How do I replace Dropbox, /g/?
Yeah yeah, I know "no cloud provider is 100% secure". But Dropbox has fucking Condoleeza "warrantless wiretapping is great" Rice on their board of directors. There has to be a line somewhere.

Can /g/ recommend a good, easy to use backup/sync utility, that preferably works on Linux and OS X? I know alternatives like tarsnap and btsync exist but those seem like a ton of work to figure out and I just want an easy solution.

Are you storing CP on the cloud or what

I honestly don't care condolezza rice is monitoring my book collection

owncloud

No, I'm not storing CP. And if I had really sensitive information, I wouldn't put it on any cloud service like that.

But Jesus Christ, I just don't want to support a company that gets into bed with people like that. There has got to be a better solution, based in Europe or something - right? Right?

I may have to occasionally take my clothes off for inspection but I'll be damned if they're going to take all my dignity and make me stay naked 24/7.
>>
>>46775281

Then make your own backups. You can't 100 percent trust anyone but yourself with data, right?
>>
>>46775281
You know how it is, trade some dignity for convenience

OK just get a vps from vultr they have a one click application for owncloud with no setup needed its like 5 bucks a month for 150gb iirc
>>
>>46775299

I'm not talking about 100% trusting the provider, I'm talking about maybe trusting them 90% if I can.

Right now, that trust is at about 40% with Dropbox. There has to be a better solution.

I wish i had time to do this, but someone should write a client that syncs and encrypts files before uploading them to googledrive and dropbox. It solves all our privacy issues with cloud storage.
>>
>>46775330
AFAIK this is what TrueCrypt was. But that's outdated, can /g/ recommend alternatives?
>>
>>46775344
>truecrypt
you probably can install openssl or gpg with Cygwin on windows and encrypt files with them
>>
>>46775330
It MIGHT not be what you want, but it's the same idea. And by someone you can more or less trust and if you don't it doesn't matter because your client encrypts it itself.

Google MEGA and it's the first link if the above doesn't work for you.

You can't trust anyone, they could store the encryption keys on their servers.
You also don't know what kind on encryption they use.
>>
>>46775245
You use your own home server. Don't even need to use FTP, Apache without an index.html will automatically turn into a file repository.

How the hell can you possibly see that as normal and OK

>someone should write a client that syncs and encrypts files before uploading them to googledrive and dropbox
Just use your dropbox dir as an EncFS source
>>
>>46775481
would i be able to get individual files when i'm logged in from other devices? or it will show up as one huge file?
>>
owncloud, on a vps
>>
What about rsync?
>>
>>46775245
Anything short of hosting your own server is pointless.

>>46775526
Look up how EncFS works

Sounds like you trust them a little too much.

tresorit
spideroak

I use tresorit... what sucks is now the free accounts can only be accessed on 3 devices

I use my desktop, laptop, and tablet. So I'm good, but for others with more than 3 devices its a limitation.

Good news is that they just added web login so you can bypass the software installation limitation
