I use dropbox to sync file between several computers. It does the job quite well but it have several disadvantages:

  • Storing files on S3 is much cheaper (I need about 10Gb for all my shared files) and for the same money I am able to have much more space
  • It doesn't provide user side security, i.e. dropbox knows what I am storing

Are there any alternatives which provide similar functionality but without a third party like dropbox? I have taken a look at FUSE for Mac OS X but it doesn't have a windows version and I can't use my files when I am offline.

Not exactly what you are looking for, but there are 2 programs that are close to what you ar looking for: Arq does what you need, but it is Mac OSX only: Cyberduck works on Mac and Windows and can use S3, but you need to upload/download files manually: – lupincho Mar 1 '12 at 14:06

Take a look on the Win and Mac OS versions, and you can use Amazon S3 in US or EU!! or RackSpace as your storage.

I have to say: The company seems quite inactive now.I love JD and it already helped me several times to get a file back. I'm currently looking for a replacement. The software does work though. – cringe Apr 4 '12 at 9:58
