Not worried about Patriot Act.

Not worried about government doing something with my stuff because I am doing nothing illegal so no worries. What I am worried about is scum doing something illegal or profiting from my stuff.

sorry but dropbox is good enough for me.. I am up to 5 GB.. also I have had enough of google trying to read and keep track of everything I do..
God knows what ever you put in google drive they will make a copy and then tell congress again we have all this info and data, what do we do with it? Just like they did with people's wifis when they were doing street view mapping.. [ if your mapping, why are you snooping ? ] they can not be trusted..
proven tack record of that..

I am NOT saying it is better, but Wuala's data centers are all located in Europe (Switzerland, Germany, France). Wuala is part of LaCie and is based in Switzerland.

Both Wuala and SpiderOak use client-side encryption and you hold the key, so your data is not accessible by vendor staff or US authorities. I am splitting my storage between Dropbox and SpiderOak these days.

That does m=not make a difference. As long as the domain name is something controlled by ICANN (.com. .net, .org, .gov, .biz, .xxx etc.), irrespective of where the servers physically are, the US can and does have jurisdiction and does exercise its right.

My previous post on this: SpiderOak as a secure alternative to Dropbox?

Including referral links to both SpiderOak and Wuala.
