At our community, we are using Box.com for our files. They make it simple to sync with a computer which can then be used to back up the files. In our case, we back the files directly to our NAS (network-attached storage) which serves as both a backup and ensures the files get backed up with our NAS backup. I am currently ruminating about moving our files to NextCloud/OwnCloud. What got me started on this was when I thought about the insecurity of file links. Our community makes extensive use of links to documents (in minutes, emails, wiki, etc) and the potential exists for someone emailing a link to a friend who then forwards it to a mailing list, or other unintended audience. That would expose the file to those on the mailing list. If the file contained further links those files would be compromised as well. This could lead to a full data breach. NextCloud allows for password-protected links, time limited links, and one-time-use links all of which mitigate against this kind of breach. They also have file versioning which can be important when documents are to be trusted as the one true agreement/policy. NextCloud runs on a Linux server and requires a fair bit of work to get running. This is not for those without technical help. I would like to organize a group of computer volunteers to set up services like this for communities who don't have the technical expertise, and mitigate the risk of loss of your tech guru. If you are your community's tech guru, I would like to talk to you.
