Hello everyone i heard about this new but not new technology, which pays you to rent your free HDD space for cloud purposes. I like to ask is there anyone which can give me some more info about this? Am planing to invest about $150 - $200 for Raspberry Pi 3 and 2HDD's with 2TB and let them run. I have readed this article which gives you a education how much will cost/earn you <link removed>. And here is the website which offer this <link removed>
What do you think, does this investment is good or money waste ?

I can see several issues off the top of my head such as

  • You may have to guarantee that your drive is available 24x7. What provisions would you have to make in the event of a failure (hardware or software)
  • Would you have to guarantee any type of backup of the data
  • Would you be held liable if the user content is illegal (encrypted or not)
  • What control would you have over the user's use of your bandwidth

I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt that this isn't just a spam post but I'm still removing the links just in case.
