So in one week TransIP notifies me the free 1TB "STACK" storage will be discontinued and Google tells me Photos will only allow 15G from soon on.
Time to host every bloody thing myself!
@matrix @b10m @flamingkeys I haven’t done an automatic sync on android because the latest versions just magically pull the files as needed. It hasn’t come up as something I need. I would expect that to use more battery, but that feels a bit obvious.
Uuuuuh lemme find a file larger than 4gig. There is one, a vbox disk image lol… I’ll upload it and see what happens
Like syncing a dir on the phone to nextcloud instead of pulling from nextcloud to the phone? I haven’t tried that. My use case for nextcloud is calendaring/contacts (davx for that, works like magic), then storing just files that I want acceessible. Memes, important files, etc etc. I don’t use it for mass backups or anything like that.
A lot of slap-dash crypto efforts also tend to expose the folder structure and file sizes. This seems like a schizo-paranoia problem at first, but understand that places like the RIAA can keep a list together of known file-size lists for copyrighted albums, etc.
@b10m for clarity, existing photos won't be baleted
@r000t true, but 15G isn't a whole lot. I'll sync my phone (and other photos) to a selfhosted seafile now.
