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?

Suggesting non-server solutions

I have not seen Joindiaspora (https://joindiaspora.com/) mentioned yet, so now you have that also. It's mainly focused of non-server setups, and may not solve the backup problem.

I want the service, backup encrypted to trusted friends computers (easily as the become online), with strong client side encryption.
Is this service still not available from any existing system???

(I have wanted this for years, but have been to lazy to participate or start any project)
