DropBox is pushy and needy and I've deleted an account for the third and final time.

Please, do not use DropBox.

@jplebreton, not a good alternative, but a more convenient one (for sharing files without requiring others sign up or upgrade) is Google Drive or even OneDrive.

Cozy Cloud is an open source alternative that just got out of beta and looks very promising! Clients for every platform, 5GB of free storage, the data is stored in France, but you can also run your own server at home. I've been using it for a few weeks, works like a charm - only thing I miss from Dropbox is file versioning.


This page describes the instance - wondering what Mastodon is? Check out instead! In essence, Mastodon is a decentralized, open source social network. This is just one part of the network, run by the main developers of the project 🐘 It is not focused on any particular niche interest - everyone is welcome as long as you follow our code of conduct!
