@craigmaloney Back in the days when ownCloud was super slow (remember, it's PHP) I switched to seafile.com/ and am still happy with that.
It is less powerful than NextCloud and unfortunately does not federate, but handles file syncing and sharing quite well.

For not needing a server at all you could also try SyncThing, but I don't have any recent experience with that.

@craigmaloney Seafile's Android app supports automatic photo upload from your phone. Also its versioning mechanism is somehow adapted from git, so it shouldn't mess up your text files too badly.

@craigmaloney i'm using nextcloud on zaclys instance. I'm also a syncthing user but nextcloud looks more equivalent to dropbox.

@craigmaloney about Syncthing just a warning if you are trying to use it in a company. I had to switch important files to Nextcloud because Syncthing protocols is not liked by firewalls. Nextcloud / Owncloud, Seafile can work on HTTPS which is not the case for Syncthing.

@craigmaloney I kind of read the "this time I want it to be free software" as implicit. Was I wrong?

@cambridgeport90

@clacke @craigmaloney Not at all. Syncthing is another one I can think of right off the top of my head. Think it's sort of like rsync.
