Desktop sync is good but the file limitation is the downside (if you're just a free user :p )

I tried to upload 2GB file, got this: Please upload files less than 200 MB.

Damn, FAQ says there are no file limitations. Is that through the browser or the sync app?

Through the browser, i hate having to install any additional addons or software just to get the functionality which can be provided by a browser.

Fair enough. This is intended to be a syncing service so a desktop app is expected but we have our own ways of using stuff.

I am attached to Charter's Cloud Drive service as a customer. They keep switching from 10TB limit to unlimited space allowances. Still haven't found a reason to use it because I am too paranoid about my data. I figured I had a solution to this - send encrpyted files up to the cloud drive! So as a test, I tried to encrypt some files (Family Photos), as a test. Ended up with a 23gb file. Got kicked back for too large of a file to upload.

So, there are some reasons to have a file upload size limitation requirement for some services. If I knew there was a limitation, I wouldn't have spent the time pushing files into the Encrypted container (Trucrpyt).

How can one truly be sure your data you send up to these 'cloud services' will not be 'accidentally erased' some day in a server glitch or some mishap that they come up with? Or, what about a rogue employee that is bent on getting fired, decides to snoop around in your files?
