How moving unused or rarely used files from Dropbox’s hot storage to deepfreeze.io’s cold storage reduced my storage costs and made my Dropbox account more manageable.
I’d like to point out that Google Drive is a cheap alternative. They have a 1TB at $10/mo option while Dropbox is 500GB at $550/mo (converted from yen pricing).
Unfortunately I can’t switch myself because Google Drive lacks Linux support.
I hear there is an alternative called Grive. Haven’t tried it out yet, but it might be what you want for your linux box.
I assume this uses AWS Glacier?
Good call, it seems to use a combination of S3 and Glacier. It’s interesting how many businesses there seem to be in providing nice APIs to AWS. Cf heroku, docker, dropbox, vagrant.
