I use Dropbox for general stuff and syncing across all my different devices including Ubuntu and Android tablets and phones. However I use Spideroak for actual machine backups…
Well I like what Spideroak do about security and privacy. Compare this to Dropbox’s terms… and what happened last year!
This was confirmed when I heard Steve Gibson’s Security now on Cloud Solutions.
After catching up with the week’s news, Leo and I examine ALL of the various cloud-based synchronizing, storage and backup solutions we could find. I survey each one in turn, and Leo chimes in with his own personal experience with many of the offerings. We conclude that SpiderOak looks like the winner, though Jungle Disk is still in the running.
Zero knowledge encryption is very useful and although I know theres way to encrypt in Dropbox (I actually have considered using them myself for somethings) I don’t really want to encrypt and decrypt on my Android device each time.
For me right now, there quite different parts of the market (although Spideroak do have dropboxes too) and I’m happy with that for now.
