How do I replace Dropbox, /g/?
Yeah yeah, I know "no cloud provider is 100% secure". But Dropbox has fucking Condoleeza "warrantless wiretapping is great" Rice on their board of directors. There has to be a line somewhere.
Can /g/ recommend a good, easy to use backup/sync utility, that preferably works on Linux and OS X? I know alternatives like tarsnap and btsync exist but those seem like a ton of work to figure out and I just want an easy solution.

No, I'm not storing CP. And if I had really sensitive information, I wouldn't put it on any cloud service like that.
But Jesus Christ, I just don't want to support a company that gets into bed with people like that. There has got to be a better solution, based in Europe or something - right? Right?
I may have to occasionally take my clothes off for inspection but I'll be damned if they're going to take all my dignity and make me stay naked 24/7.
I'm not talking about 100% trusting the provider, I'm talking about maybe trusting them 90% if I can.
Right now, that trust is at about 40% with Dropbox. There has to be a better solution.
I wish i had time to do this, but someone should write a client that syncs and encrypts files before uploading them to googledrive and dropbox. It solves all our privacy issues with cloud storage.
It MIGHT not be what you want, but it's the same idea. And by someone you can more or less trust and if you don't it doesn't matter because your client encrypts it itself.
Google MEGA and it's the first link if the above doesn't work for you.

I use tresorit... what sucks is now the free accounts can only be accessed on 3 devices
I use my desktop, laptop, and tablet. So I'm good, but for others with more than 3 devices its a limitation.
Good news is that they just added web login so you can bypass the software installation limitation
