Ok, I know this topic has probly been asked to death, but I still cant find the information I'm looking for.

What I'm wanting is is to be able set up my pi with an external TB drive and set it up as a cloud storage that I can access from anywhere.

Example: I work all night on a project on my desktop in my dorm and save it to the "PiCloud." The next day I go to work on it with a friend across town but I forgot to transfer my work to my laptop. Instead of having to go all the way back to the dorm to transfer the files I can download it through the "PiCloud."

I know I can easily set it up using owncloud, but I cant access it outside my local network.

Hopefully the example makes it clear what I want to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Isn't Owncloud + Port forwarding + Dynamic DNS enough ?

Set up a PHP cache and you might even get reasonable speeds.

if you use SSL with Owncloud, dont forget to port forward the SSL port used
