Self-Hosted

Nextcloud This is the top option for those more interested in self-hosting their cloud files. While some services do offer NextCloud as a subscription, I highly recommended going the self-hosted route with this. Free - Enterprise
ownCloud The original cloud service that actually spawned NextCloud. Arguably less feature rich and less developed than NextCloud, still a great product used by many. Free - Enterprise

Third-Party

Tresorit If you're not able to self-host, I can't think of a better solution than Tresorit. Well priced and feature rich, this will make you forget about Dropbox the first time you open it. $12+/mo No
pCloud* A Switzerland based clould storage company with zero-knowledge encryption. This is a great cross-platform solution for replacing Dropbox. Free - $7.99/mo Yes
SpiderOak One Secure, encrypted, zero-knowledge cloud file storage. Cross platform and easy to use. This is a great solution for backing up your files, but does not work as a great solution for a Dropbox replacement as the mobile app lacks features. $5+/mo No
