    I heard the same thing about online shopping and banking. Today nearly everyone shops and banks online. Cloud computing/services are here to stay. Just as e-commerce is.
    For me, I couldn't do without cloud services; even run backups to a cloud backup service.
    Good luck.
    Yes, you are absolutely right. I meant for my data storage and I meant cloud storage not cloud services. I apologize for the confusion. I do bank online, though I don't have a cell phone, and I never use the internet without a VPN.

    No need to apologize

    Anyway, I am talking data storage - I keep backups in the cloud. I keep files in OneDrive. No issues here.

    I know this is getting a little off topic;

    I use a slightly different approach. I have 3x10TB NAS drives. One of the drives is plugged into a hot plug caddy and is rotated to a safe each month. It contains file/folder backups of the 10 PCs here that are taken twice daily. I also do twice daily images of each PC. These are backed up to an external drive which is then backed up to a "recovery drive" which is also stored off site, so the PCs can be restored if needed. Most data is stored on my 140TB Windows 2012 R2 server, but some stuff is on client PCs. It's all captured twice daily using Macrium Reflect.

    I find there are just too many things outside our control with cloud storage and I read places like bleeping computer, ghacks, borncity, and several others and every day I would see 10 or more stories about places being hacked. Sorry, I'll keep my data under my control.

    But I understand some people need to be able to access data from different places from different devices, and if it works for them, then all power to them.It's just not for us.

    The "the sky is falling articles" are simply scare tactics and the headlines designed to gain clicks.

    Realize nothing is perfect, but also realize you've got a far better chance of getting your PC hacked than having someone hack into cloud account. Yeah, things happen, but the frequency is far and wide. And again, there's no guarantee your PC won't be hacked.

    And I also run a NAS with cloud access.

    Regardless, I'm not here to sell you on cloud services, if it's not for you, it's not for you. I'm just simply dispelling some of the false narratives of it being unsafe. That's far from being true.

    Peace
