self hosted cloud remote file access

At home I use syncthing and have for years. But I have some cases where I want to access my home pc files remotely (vacation, hotel etc)

Nextcloud and owncloud are clunky and annoying as frick. I just want to be able to browse the files after logging in remotely. What are the best open source options for this? Preferably something I can run on win10 or, if linux is necessary, a spare Raspberry Pi 4b.

I only need this file access for android and win pcs. Prefer something where you just access the files rather than some gigantic user interface and operating system like Nextcloud

        Windows ships with OpenSSH now. Just use that.

    I have been using an FTP server for this for the last 20 years

      this is honestly probably one of the most straightforward ways to do it and something I already know but can you stream video this way?

      I guess you can with like VLC on both win and android putting in the network URL? I want to stream film/tv from hard files at home thru usbc to hdmi android to tvs for example. I guess this would be doable thru VLC with netowrk address link to FTP at home?

      tbqh this sounds like the best answer because most other stuff is REALLY gay. Like it's shocking how fricking gay, lame, moronic, nerdy-for-its-own-sake a lot of this shit is. I played with nextcloud for a day or two and it's like operating a fricking website. I literally just want access to my files without really gay tech homosexual shit nobody cares about. Thanks for posting this tbh, I guess setting up dyndns etc with ftp is the most straightforward way to achieve what I want

      Thanks for pointing me in this direction

    You'll be much happier if you just stop using non-free software. Ubuntu includes sshfs which works automatically in the default desktop environment OOTB. You don't even have to set anything up just go to ssh://yourmachine or whatever.

      Linux is gay and annoying. Only interacting with it if ABSOLUTELY necessary. Mentally and spiritually related to accountants. Let those homosexuals do the work, I don't want to be involved or anywhere near you freaks. You're paid to do it, do it and leave the rest of us alone

        Why can’t they just use “dir” to show the contents of a directory?

          it's "ls" which is no big deal to learn. It's just that it breaks constantly and requires going under the hood to fix so much that you are like "aren't there pajeet homosexuals who are being paid to do this mental grunt work so I can get what I want done"

          linux makes me appreciate the whole Apple "it just works" ethos

          overall though, Linux is for homosexuals

          ssh

          I mean I'm comfortable in putty when I need to be but as far as being in android and win 10/11 PCs and just wanting to access files, as well as have media files stream on whatever favored media player I want, can I do that with just SSH hosted on a win10 pc?

            I guess you can set up a OpenSSH server.

            total noob question but can you point me to a tutorial where I can get this set up? such that I can put the addresses in the right places so I can access the home files from anywhere online

            It's not that easy. You need to buy a domain name or use some kind of dynamic DNS because you probably don't have a static IP. There are also security issues you should pay attention to.

            Windows commands also have modifiers but they start with "/". What drugs are you on?
