2019-08-19 22:06 - Slick trick for "native" folder syncing for  http://Sync.com  or DropBox: Move native folder under the cloud provider's folder, then use "mklink" command (or Mac/Linux equivalent) to create a Symlink to the original folder location.

2019-08-19 21:45 - So far I've experimented with Dropbox, ownCloud, nextcloud, SyncThing,  http://sync.com  and several others. (Got SyncThing to sync to the cloud, too!) I'll be doing a full feature and experience rundown for Security Now #734 on October 1st... after much more experimenting. [ Link to Twitter ]
2019-08-19 21:41 - I'm experimenting with, and liking, the " http://sync.com " service.

[ Link to Twitter ]
2019-08-14 21:06 - FYI: I'm heading toward a hybrid solution with zero-cost or paid options, warrant-proof (TNO) cloud storage, optional archival non-local storage, file versioning, ransomware protection, fully cross-platform, and more. :) [ Link to Twitter ]
2019-08-14 20:17 - I am checking out " http://sync.com " as a superior Dropbox alternative. It does true TNO client-side encryption and paid accounts are much more storage for much less $$. If you're curious, this referral link gets us BOTH an extra 1GB for free:  http://www.sync.com/get-started?_sync_refer=db5bec620  [ Link to Twitter ]
