I'm pretty sure Copy meets all of your criteria:
Will run scheduled, automated, backups of my home folder and other folders I specify.
This one I'm not sure about. By default, the app creates a directory in your home folder and synchronizes it in near-realtime as changes are made. So you could obtain something similar to what you've described by ...
You could take a look at Seafile:
Open Source (hosted on Github)
Can be used with your own server – which should answer your privacy issue
Is cross-platform (Android, iPad/iPhone, OSX, Linux, RasPi, and Windows are supported)
It's often advertized as "Open Source alternative to Dropbox"
As there are no depencies to third-parties (except concerning "where ...
UPDATE Sept 2017:
For anyone who finds this now, the facial recognition side of things can be handled in a number of ways. Personally, I back my photos up to a Synology NAS at home and then back that up to Amazon Drive. For the photos on the NAS, I actually sync. Although I sync one way, from NAS to Amazon, you could do it both ways which would give you a ...
You may use Grive if you already have a Google Drive Account.
Open up Terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T)
Add Grive repo: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:thefanclub/grive-tools. Hit Enter.
Do a sudo apt-get update
Install Grive with sudo apt-get install grive
Although you want to backup entire home folder I recommend to backup your Documents folder because home ...
There is a free and basic tool called CryptSync which is something like a cross between 7Zip (for compression and encryption) and SynchToy (for scheduled synch).
You can synch compressed and encrypted copies of specified files and folders to your locally stored cloud folder which in turn synchs with the cloud storage.
Although I like it, for me there are ...
You can give Folder Downloader for Dropbox a shot. I have used it once but have never needed it again.
Simply sign into your Dropbox account, long press on the folder you wish to download and either tap and hold on a folder and select Download folder to or tap the button at the bottom that says Download all to which downloads all the files and folders in ...
Basically you are looking for a cloud storage with client-side encryption.
You can use Wuala:
client for Windows, Linux, Mac OSX, iOS, and Android
5 GB free
All files get encrypted and are stored redundantly. No one unauthorized - not even Wuala as the provider - can access the files (in other words, encryption is client-side).
WhatsApp can actually be configured to use much less phone space:
Go to the settings
Touch "Data and storage usage"
Find the "Media auto-download" section
In each of the items in that section, unselect everything
Delete everything in your WhatsApp/Media folder.
Now, WhatsApp should take no more than a megabytes or two, rather than hundreds of megabytes.
Adrive meets all your criteria, just not at the same time... See here for the free plan features.
It has a desktop client, which despite being done using Adobe air works pretty well under Linux, but is available only on the premium plan (something like 25$/year). I wouldn't have answered to this question if their web access was not of such quality that you ...
I used ES File Explorer. I added the Dropbox as a Cloud source, then I could select multiple items (folders or files), and either Copy or Move the items to another folder, whether it's on another Cloud, a computer on my LAN, or onto the local device/SD card.
Price tag: Free
To my knowledge, you can't treat multiple accounts as a single folder, but for everything else Expandrive is fantastic. I use it for multiple cloud storage providers and it works very well on Mac and Windows.
I had basically the same issue that I solved using an assortment of software with Google Drive as the cloud service:
For the work computer (Windows OS), use SyncDocs. It is a tool that syncs your documents with Google Drive. Its most important features are:
It can be installed without administrator privileges
It also has a portable version for USB drives ...
Consider using CloudBerry Backup.
It supports Google nearline and allows you to perform incremental and differential backups.
More information here:
Maybe PanBox. Their Github page claims that
You can download the manual for PanBox from www.panbox.org, which fits
for the Windows, Linux and Android version.
The download page references GPLed binaries and claims to be compatible to Windows in various versions:
Panbox 1.1.2 für Windows 7 SP1 / 8.x / 10 (experimentell)
Use Borg (or another incremental backup program) alongside a cloud access tool
Consider using a combination of utilities that each do a part of what you want, instead of a single giant program that would do all of this. You could essentially get away with 2 programs: the "cloud access layer" and Borg (if this is what you prefer). I think the following setup ...
Have a look at duplicati.
It does fit all of your conditions if I'm not mistaken :
It works with standard protocols like FTP, SSH, WebDAV as well as popular services like Microsoft OneDrive, Amazon Cloud Drive & S3, Google Drive, box.com, Mega, hubiC and many others.
AES encryption is done on your device, then encrypted files are stored
plus it's open ...
If you are not married to Google Drive, look into SpiderOak.
Its client encrypts files locally on your PC before uploading & decrypts on download.
The SpiderOak team don't have any access to your encryption keys, and couldn't even help you if you forgot your passphrase.
I have been happily using to for many years. It also has apps for Android and ...
I suggest you give Siilo a try.
It is a storage abstraction layer for Python.
Siilo gives you a base API with operations like open and delete, that you can use without worrying about what is being used below.
CMIS on fmerges's branch
It seems that very few operations are implemented. ...
To get end-to-end encryption it is inevitable to install a piece of software on your client. Such tools exist and often work with more than one cloud. I would recommend to have a look at Boxcryptor, as far as I know it also supports differential synchronisation.
You can use Nextcloud for this. There are providers offering a few GB for free, like the Germany-based Webo or Swiss-based Wölkli, both offering 3GB storage in their free plans.
Nextcloud file storage can be mounted locally using WebDAV, which is easily done on a Linux machine, no additional software needed, only a single line added to /etc/fstab:
Shutter matches this fine (also see these answers):
Take screenshots of the current monitor, current window, all monitors or a custom rectangular area: Yes. Additionally of menus, including/excluding the mouse pointer, configuratble delay.
Automatically upload files to a custom web service and store the URL to the file in the clipboard: Yes. Multiple ...
This is not answering your question but it is an alternative to fixing your problem.
You can use the Easy Digital Downloadsplugin. You can use that to sell your excels sheets.
This plugin is free although add-ons cost extra.
One alternative that I know of is Google Drive. First of all upload the files and then click on the share button on top.
This will give you a link which is of the form
Make a note of the FILE_ID.
On your website, create the following link.
I recommend Alfresco Cloud:
Sync with your filesystem using desktop sync. Your changes get uploaded, you get remote changes, just like Dropbox.
All content is indexed: filenames, metadata, full-text of PDF, office documents, and many others.
Modern web interface called "Alfresco Share".
All exchanges are over HTTPS.
Great uptime though I don't have further ...
You can do this with AWS if you use EC2 to host your FTP servers and Route 53 for DNS by taking advantage of the Route 53 DNS feature called "Latency Resource Record Sets"
AWS blog post
It would be cool if you could do with this S3 and therefore save money by not having to run EC2 servers but I havent come across that as an ...
