One #uncloud please
I took a drastic step to get my data volumes under control. I replaced Dropbox with Syncthing.
Why is that good?
You think about your data. What do you really need in the cloud and where?
Dropbox had some funny quirks on the Mac. For example, at 200 GB it always took forever to start the app. In the Finder it always indicated the size of the Dropbox as 337 KB. And I don’t want to start with data protection.
Syncthing is completely decentralized. So it is not a cloud in the classical sense, but a sync between several machines. That makes life somehow easier. You just have what you have there. If you don’t want it anywhere else, you take it out of the folder and then it’s no longer synced. But if it will be my professional backup solution now, after a lot of trouble with TimeMachine, I don’t know yet.
