I am searching for an open source document management system to:

  • Add my GIS (Geographic information System) documents.
    (All kinds of files: .shp ,.mdb, Word, PowerPoint, Excel, .gdb, .tiff, .bmp, .dwg)
  • Store them on cloud storage (I don't have my own server).
  • No space limit or document number limit.
  • Backup and restore my documents.
  • Document workflows.
  • Email notification for each change.
  • Version control.
  • Operate on Windows 7 and 8.
  • I don't need sharing and authorization options

I found OpenKM, Dokmee, Zoho Docs, LogicalDOC, NOOMAC Document File Manager, EisenVault, and Doccept but these are all not free.

Where can I find a free open source one?

I found Kimios DMS and SeedDMS winch is continuation of a project known as LetoDMS. the Kimios DMS is written in Java so you'll need to run it on Tomcat, Jboss or a compatible application server that can run jsp. SeedDMS is a Php app. both of these will run on windows that being said most of the software of this kind is web based these days.
