        pCloud acquisition might be good idea but it seems that they do not have yet block-level sync - https://www.cloudwards.net/review/pcloud/
        About block-level sync - https://www.cloudwards.net/block-level-file-copying/
        Overall security and privacy sounds good although using 4096-bit RSA for keys might not be good enough for today - check https://www.ria.ee/sites/default/files/content-editors/publikatsioonid/cryptographic-algorithms-lifecycle-report-2017.pdf from chapter 2.2 "Key length recommendations" and possibly already elliptic curve (e.g. Ed25519) would be expected (with higher KDF value than default 16 - man ssh-keygen and search parameter -a):

        Yep, would be a great idea,
        and at least having full securised suite to selfhost the drive and easyly link it to protonmail

        I would love to have a ProtonMail secure, encrypted alternative to Google Drive and Dropbox. Please.

        Likewise my vote for the CALENDAR, as an ongoing paying Protonmail customer, this service would be enormously beneficial for me. I would love to run my business in a proton-secure platform: email, calendar, documents, contacts. All together.

        Also important for all the benefits of bringing these features into the proton suite - integrations and the ability to share across other platforms while still maintaining the value of the security. Some secure pathways through Zapier would be amazing??!

        It's a shame they don't provide any info for ProtonDrive. I was super interested in it, but with lack of info, pricing and pretty much anything else I opted for a service from a "rival" Swiss company. Too bad coz ProtonDrive sounds like a cool idea if they'll follow the ProtonMail concept...

        I think such a feature would be great, especially to store and access encrypted password database like keepass one.
        Then I thought, why not integrating a (keepass based ?) secured password wallet/generator directly in the web app, so that the client app is not necessary anymore ?
        Thanks for your great work.

        I see the web site but can not sign up. Hay guys how about a mail-vpn-drive package deal.

      • Tristan commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        A great idea!
        I'd definitely subscribe to an all in one Mail/VPN/Cloud Storage service.
        Keep up the great work.

        ProtonDrive website is there but no active links??? When will this be functional?? NEED to get away from all Google sites!!

      • Adam commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I would like to see encrypted storage like google drive, and encrypted calendar.

      • Patrick Dassens commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This is a brilliant idea. In fact currently I am just adding attachments to draft emails and placing them in an email folder. I see that some other people do the same but a Proton type of cloud drive with all the security features as used with ProtonMail would be more convenient.

      • Arun Sathiya commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I would love to see this as well, especially when storage available on ProtonMail is not enough, and 20GB storage upgrade at 11.35 EUR is not something I can afford at this time.

      • Chip commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        How would this be superior to existing secure cloud storage solutions like Sync or pCloud?

      • pnobulls commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        it would cool, but the main issues are size for users and secure, that is 2 that I know about their is could more, the main thought is it worth investing.

      • GM commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Add a blockchain-based timestamp feature, limited in issues per month for the free version, like Geens.com (which is unclear by whom is run and how cryptography is implemented).

        Why not adding the same blockchain-based timestamp feature to ProtonMail emails as well?

      • Esther commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I fully support a ProtonDrive and would jump on it without any hesitation. I'm not currently using any online storage right now, simply because I worry about privacy.

        I already trust and respect ProtonMail, so it would be a natural move for me to use a ProtonDrive.

        Agree with Mad As. There are already solid providers of secure data storage (my preference is SpiderOak). Their plans are quite affordable and the technology is tested. Why re-invent the wheel? Secure Calendars, on the other hand, are still missing...
