I'm looking for a cloud storage solution that can sync 1TB of data just for personal use, no business or anything but consists of millions of files on an average laptop. I would like a good web interface to view photos or videos synced or share files to others, sometimes publicly like on Facebook so they can see them. I don't care about collaboration folders or collaboration features, just my little copy online that I can let others in as I deem necessary to some files or to go though photo memory lane in my web browser or randomly view files online instead of on my computer.
For reference my laptop is a mac and has 8GB of memory and 2.6GHZ processor.
Dropbox didn't workout because everything was just amazing until I went past their hidden half-undocumented 300,000 file soft limit after which the client stalled out and my files were trapped on their servers with no way off for about 5-ish years until I found some cheap and crummy service to pull them off AT LAST! Dropbox also keeps in-memory tabs on every file which ate up all of my computer memory
Google Drive is nearly just as bad, it also eats up a tremendous amount fo RAM, going on 3GB so far, and like Dropbox seems to stall a bit quite often, randomly restart the sync engine pretty often especially when file count gets up to about 200,000, plus give very nagging and annoying popups all the time about how it can't convert this image (I don't care) or had trouble uploading this arbitrary file (again I don't care and can manually upload it if it's that important but rarely is) furthermore Google Drive locks to a computer so if I format this computer which I did at one time and then re-install it and place all the files back it has to backup to a whole different folder from scratch making me delete it's progress from the previous format. Too many issues with it and between all the restarts and rescans of the software and the mass slowing down of my computer I don't think it'll ever actually finish.
I'm at loss as to what to do, every suggestion website I looked at praised Dropbox and such but I'm never ever in my life touching that crap again, I tried for months for abotu 5 years to get my files off and every answer pointed to one solution "Use the client" - With Google Sync client also beginning to fail as a viable option any help would be great. I've seen other suggestions but I've put money into both services and don't have a lot of money to keep placing into a dozen other solutions.
EDIT: Not interested in self hosting or anything, don't really have any hard drives around here nor want to lug hard drives around also don't want to deal with server setup and maintenance - I mean I could do that but it would just end up being overly complicated and likely too expensive especially for bandwidth and all over time. Looking to spend around $15 or less for 1TB of cloud storage online with cloud sync functionality that's accessible from any platform even mobile phones.
If nothings really out there like this I might just stick with Google Drive, it's at least better than Dropbox and a bit more doable if I want to work outside the client but welcome any suggestions if there are any.
