I am looking for a Self Hosting Cloud Storage Software that I can just install and use to access my files remotely. I just want to be able to install it and use it straight up. I want it to have a good UI where i can see photos and stuff in folders easily. I want it to be multi platform where i can access my files.

I use icloud & onedrive (and in the past used mega).

I like both icloud & onedrive, I use them on mobile devices and windows & mac desktops they both work well once you've taken the effort to set them all up.

I have it so they just appear as another drive on my devices like any other hard storage. Of course you have to be mindful that they require internet connection for smooth use but that is rarely a problem with the amount of wifi & 4g around nowadays.

No idea why you haven't been getting helpful answers here, but Nextcloud is the de facto standard for what you want to do.

Please consider redundancy if you must go down the self hosted route. Remember, cloud storage by the likes of Microsoft and Google has the benefit of high availability and redundancy - your local instance not so much......

I second Nextcloud. Have you thought about a NAS and VPN configuration?

OP is asking for self-hosting.

For self-hosting, I think that Plex is a rather good idea. It's multi-platform and free, it just requires you to have an internet connection. Having a NAS and an app that you can access it from is also a decent alternative, but it's all up to you.

I hope this helps

Thank you very much for the reply. I have taken that into consideration and found the perfect combination for my needs. Also considered redundancy as well and have added that to make sure that is done.
