    Windows 10 with drive or cloud.


    I am using a cloud to hold all my files and folders. Is there a free way to back up this cloud in the event it fails. All the data is also on m phone's cloud.
    I use external drives to image my hard drive but I doubt that includes the cloud like Onedrive drive or Drive.
    Thank you

    When I use Macrium Reflect to back up my system, does it image Google Drive which is in the chrome browser?
    In other words, is the image one that will contain all the files in Google Drive?
    I ask b/c the image dos contain drive as part of the system and thought once recovered the Google files would be there by clicking on Drive.

    Google Drive, formerly Google Docs, is a file storage and synchronization service created by Google.[2][3] It allows users to store files in the cloud, share files, and edit documents, spreadsheets, and presentations with collaborators. Google Drive encompasses Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides, an office suite that permits collaborative editing of documents, spreadsheets, presentations, drawings, forms, and more.

    I keep one copy in Amazon's Cloud service and one copy local, in case I am not on the Internet.

    Some other items like reference books are on a hard copy.

    When yo say local do you mean on the offline partition in Chromebook or a flash drive. If it is a flash drive how do you do it?
    I am obviously new to Drive and have not yet gotten a Chromebook. I use the Drive which I find when I open with Chrome or with my phone.

    Yes offline can be on DVD/CD, USB stick or a Pocket drive. Some things do get saved on my laptop and iCloud, so that I have them available on my iPhone.

    sync + security


    Hello
    I used Cloud HQ to sync Drive from my PC to Dropbox.
    There is an entry that says Cloud HQ archive and if I click on it about 4 times 2 files I already have is in it. Is it safe to remove this or is this an update to the files?
    I hope not to clutter my Drive or Dropbox with redundant files and folders and do hope any changes to files can be made without relabeling them and adding more entries.

    Lastly, how secure is CloudHQ - it is in my Dropbox account as a program that knows my data. Should I remove it or will I lose the ability to sync?
    TY
    Peter
