The idea is to create an app that would for an example take a standard USB or old laptop. And to turn it into a cloud that is similar to that of Google Drive. The difference would be, that instead of sending the files somewhere else or to the google center - everything is going to be within the home router - placed on the usb. What would be your software recommendations for a start? All help is greatly appreciated.

Maybe the software from FreedomBox would be interesting for you to examine, they share files locally with Samba, which can also be accessed from the outside.
