    Attention Photo storage

    Hi all,

    I'm currently paying for Google and OneDrive cloud storage now my question is……

    I have web server space available so is there any web based software available that I can create my own private web based cloud photo storage saving me years of paying these fees.

    I then need to download years and years of private family pics spread over the above two platforms and there are loads.

    Then setup phones and my iPad so when a photo is taken it uploads to this new private cloud storage area.

    Just to save money.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    All our pics are stored on the plex server.
    we have backups saved to secondary ssd drive just in case.

    there are a lot of pics though I think it’s around 480+ gb
    we have a lot of duplicates of Florida as we went every two years for about 16yrs.
    then there is the dogs there’s probably 100gb of dog photos lol

    I’m back lost password so thanks to Malty for his help.

    I didn’t think of Plex as a storage means but doing that way does any phots taken get automatically uploaded to Plex?

    No they removed the ability to upload photos through plex.
    I just backup my photos to the server.

    It used to auto backup images to a folder in plex but that was dropped for some unknown reason?
