    Second this. I'm using ExpanDrive with Amazon S3 to avoid the atrocious local sync. So far, so good.

    Check bitcasa.com. That's what you are looking for.

    It seems to me that ONEDRIVE for Business accompishes what you desire.


    It does not require syncing as the only means of storing a file on the cloud.


    After a file is saved locally, one can upload it to ONEDRIVE and then delete the file locally.

    So I stumbled upon this thread because I am very frustrated with dropbox. I thought the purpose of dropbox was to work as a cloud not to sync. Just discovered syncing when I received the message that there is no room on my hard drive. Come to find out 100GB have been used by dropbox. Of course I can't reach anyone at technical support. After reading through your replies, is anyone aware if the services mentioned have apps for access from iphone or ipads? In particular Wuala? Thank you in advance.

    Gents -- as of today (May 2014) I would be hesitant to recommend Bitcasa anymore. I have it for $99/year and love it absolutely, and I currently use about 4TB of my unlimited quota. The Mac client was very buggy for the first few months but it seems to have leveled out. I have not yet tried the Linux client as it's been in beta for a while, but I am glad that they at least have it. Bitcasa support is very responsive, and they continue to build out their API. I have read (although not tested) that I could theoretically use my virtual infinity drive with PLEX so I can stream my content from the cloud, rather than mirror to local storage for my PLEX entertainment.


    However, all of that being said, in the last six months, Bitcasa has increased their annual unlimited cost from $99/year (amazing) to $999/year (holy s**t). I am fortunate since I have been grandfathered into the legacy pricing, but if I were now seeking out a cloud solution with unlimited storage, I may have to look elsewhere.

    ExpanDrive is what I landed on - spent way to much time punching in different google searches to come up with the solution, but it's installed and working like a charm! Mounts my Dropbox and Google Drive accounts as an external hard drive right in finder. Only downside they are not searcheable by finder, but I can live with that. Looks like it is $39.95.
