Does anyone know a cloud storage desktop client/solution for Windows that does not keep a copy of files locally? I'll just login and access the folder where I can dump files I want to be uploaded on the cloud.

  • On a linux machine I do it by using sshfs to a VPS ... there are sshfs implementations for windows and mac, but they are old(er) and may not work well these days. I think winscp can integrate into Explorer (file manager, not browser) so you can go to sftp://user@host/ and save it as a location/library.

  • How about ExpanDrive? Do you looking for free app or paid?

Google Drive

Google Drive can be used without installing any software on your local computer. Use most any modern web browser. Drag-and-drop files from your local file system into the Google Drive browser window to initiate an upload. No linkage or syncing, so you may delete the original files from your local storage after upload completes.
