It appears that google is making some changes...
It seems a bit confusing what they are doing..
putting google drive under "backup and sync" ...from what is said..
and that normal ordinary google drive as we know it won't work as the stand alone it has been...
That is what I get from the articles I have read thus far...

Doubtless this will affect some here..

In point of fact ..it will affect all the links to files I share here...
I will have to change all my links here and find another free online file sharing service rather than deal with this fuzzy and vague appearing answer given..

Any suggestions for a good free online file sharing service that gives enough storage?

I am leaning toward ..Mega

Yeah Nextcloud definitely. If you are considering moving away from Google, then make it an opportunity to move to open source and self-hosted and private!

My guess is that if google gets to know of the frustration that comes with this..they are less likely to re-adjust and make it simplier or less complicated. I stand to be corrected. Would you agree?

theory is sound...
But dealing with behemoths like google , ms, apple or facebook...
they could care less about a small segment of the pop. that is irritated, vexed, or angry,..
Such corps. "do" care though ...about public image ..and spin doctoring exploding media coverage of issues pertaining to them to be able to retain their market share.

No, I do not agree.

Unfortunately Google has made plenty decisions that affect their bottom line and the few, angry masses tend to be a write-off more than anything else.

It's why FOSS is seen as a bunch of wild kids doing their own thing in a basement or garage until... whining either drops out of style, the product gets bought out and rebranded as a "new idea" or the disgruntled few fail to make a dent in educating the masses.

Often the FOSS is pushed so far down that folks just don't even know that they're running something that's open source somewhere in the stack (think: routers).

It used to be that people valued their private data, whatever happened to that sentiment?
