Dropbox costs $10/month for 100GB, which is $0.10 per 1GB and on Amazon Glacier it costs $0.01 per GB per month. And you don't always need to keep photos of you from 10 years ago at your fingertips, it's ok to have them stored at "grandma's basement".
Watches '_iceberg' folder of your dropbox and move all new files into Amazon Glacier (creates hidden file for each file you put into the folder with reference to Glacier Archive ID), after file successfully uploaded to Amazon, zeroes out Dropbox file (so it won't consume any space). When you need that file back, simply move it out of '_iceberg' folder (but keep within dropbox) and Iceberg would go back to Glacier and fetch contents for the file and populate it for you. (Amazon Glacier's retrieval job takes 3-5 hours to finish).
As you can tell other half of the team (design part) is in South America at the moment and it all looks ugly. :)
Creating Amazon Glacier account could take some time and effort, sorry :)
And looks like Safari doesn't like Dropbox's auth flow, so if it's the case – try Google Chrome.
ApiGee – session storage, AWS-SDK for Glacier, npm/dropbox – for Dropbox, few homemade ones (all from npm).
Voting is now closed.
Thanx. :) For me main problem that I takes as much space on my laptop.
Just wait until beta version, ok? :)
Yeah, I prefer more explicit approach, magic is good, but only to some extent. :) Thanx.
Haha :) Thanx a lot :)
Going to. Thank you.
Yes, I think later I can add more source storages. Thank you.
Yep, this is the plan. Thanx.
Tough. Thanx :)
Thank you :)

Yeah, it always bugged me why dropbox didn't introduce limited access to a certain folder. :)
