Is there a dropbox like tool for storj

Im looking for a cross platform sync tool.

Storj is primarily aimed at developers who could build a drop box like service on top of it. Similar to Amazon S3 or Azure Blob storage.

However, there is quite a bit of software support for S3 and Storj does provide an S3 compatible gateway. I haven’t used it myself yet, but maybe have a look at goodsync. It’s available for lots of platforms and has S3 compatibility.


You may also be interested in checking out rclone for syncing and restic for backups.

Agreed, those are probably better options if you’re comfortable setting things up over CLI. I had another look at goodsync as I might want to play around with it a bit myself, but the free version is actually quite limited and the paid version is a yearly subscription model, which I’m not a fan of. It’s harder than I thought to find a GUI client that does sync and is cross platform. I’ve used syncback pro in the past (though not for Storj, but I know it has S3 compatibility), but that’s windows only. And still pricey, though at least it’s a one time purchase.

Ultimately S3 is still a developer backend, so the software built for it is usually aimed at developers as well. But if you find something that works for you, please share!


Nextcloud is S3-compatible and can be used with storj s3 gateway. I have not found a better alternative to dropbox than nextcloud yet.
