Do you guys prefer one cloud storage solution over the others? Dropbox, Google drive, mircosoft onedrive. ✨✨✨

    Selfhosted Nextcloud over all of them.

    I prefer Nextcloud because I can host it in my own network and sync gigabytes of data without sending them across half the globe.

    With online cloud services I usually prefer the one that gets me the most storage space with a free account. Encryption and stuff is preferrable, but I avoid using that stuff for sensitive data anyways. Dropbox has become my backup storage for dank memes by now.

    Hardly heard any use of dropbox and onedrive

    My setup is a bit more complicated, and it's grown out of what I had to build it at the time.

    I have a bunch of raspberry pis connected to gigantic multi-terrabyte drives that I got for cheap. They are distributed across multiple network locations.

    My laptops and all the pis have saltstack installed, with a master node on a public IP (I use linode).

    For files that I update regularly, I have Syncthing installed on all pis, on my main laptop, my Chromebook and my phone.

    For files I use less often, I use git-annex to deduplicate and track where they are across all my possible drives, and if I'm not on the same network as the drive I need the file from, it automatically sets up a port forward through my saltstack master machine.

    It was a crazy journey to get there but I'm pretty happy with it now :)

    Google. Because 2 dollars for 100 GB suits me better than 10 dollars for 1000 GB.
