Google Well, this has been a very, very long time in the making. Google has finally unveiled its big Dropbox competitor: Google Drive. You start with 5GB for free, and you can go all the way to 1TB for $50 per month. This is a big deal for many (if you were to use rumouring as a gauge), but all I can think of is this: why on earth would you entrust your files to a company - any company - whose sole interest is extracting money from you, and who, to boot, is subject to crazy American laws?

And to encrypt all data and obfuscate everything before i store it is just too complicated.


What about sshfs & encfs? I'm using the combination of sshfs & encfs and some web space where I have ssh access.
So the data is encrypted on the client and should be secure (unless there is a severe bug in encfs) and I don't need any tools to access the data, just mount it.
Not good for high performance but very simple to use.
