I use Dropbox for my salon and it is wonderful. I have doubled my reviews both on Google and Facebook in les than 2 months. I get a ton of referral business and this is amazing!

I have been using Dropbox on Linux for a few years. I have set up some infrastructure with Linux on a VPS using Dropbox to sync between windows clients and headless linux clients. In addition, I use Zapier to store files in Dropbox, which triggers some actions in the VPS when synchronized. All those processes are now lost, like tears in rain, because of Dropbox decision to drop all file systems but one. I came here looking for a solution but I see that people is also having problems with a file image of a ext4 disk. Have you found any alternative or solution? Linux support for other cloud storage services like Google Drive or Microsoft One Drive seems to be non-existent too.
