    My wife and son know how to get all my passwords, so that much is covered.
    How does ransomware affect One Drive?
    I back up to an external drive that I know will be toast, but also to Idrive. They assure me that even if an bad copy is put on, the previous copy will still be there. But One Drive will just have the one copy.
    Not so much how to get the passwords. Having them written down makes sure that during an event that you or your wife pass away. The very first thing that a person handling the estate is looking for the folder or papers for that information. I was the only one who knew where my next door neighbor kept her financial passwords and wills. Her own daughters were too shook up from her passing that morning, they did not even know where it was at that moment, since they had to be at the funeral home later that afternoon.

    Trust me on this. Login information with the will/trust documents, along with account numbers, addresses for financials, phone numbers, local contact person or office if there is one, same for if you have a pension and who they contact. Makes it a lot easier when things can change in a blink of an eye.

    I use OneDrive to store the data from my checking program (Moneydance) so that I can use Moneydance from any one of my computers. Just to be safe I have Moneydance set to make backups to a different folder on OneDrive and I have Easus setup to make a weekly backup to a local drive. I don't have any personal info entered so if by chance my OneDrive account was to get hacked it wouldn't do the hacker any good.

    I imagine very few people do this but a in the event of my death list is very helpful.

    It made her daughter's realize that they would have been lost if I was not there. Too emotional for them, since she had started yo go downhill rather quickly that week. Her wish was to die at home and not be hooked up to a bunch of machines.

    I only knew where it was in her filling cabinet and on her desk, since she would have me come over and fix the computer, or get her some stuff to take to where she sat in her back room.

    My wife keeps a spreadsheet with all of the login info on it printed and keeps a local and portable copy. I keep the same password on my machine as I do on my icloud, so if she does have to get into mine, it is easy for her or my son.

    I had the headache of going through all this when my mother passed away in 2015. It can be fun when you have to try finding everything. There was a couple of insurance policies I never did find. Luckily I wrote out all her checks and had the policy numbers. A big must have with the cost of a funeral today.

    Yes it is, even if it is just a family only and cremation.
