    Me too, thanks very much for the link. Shame the title isn't "Sign up to keep your free storage" to make it more obvious....

    I would never store any data that I care about in some cloud storage that I do not control. A couple of 2 TB disks are a much better option.

    Have you got a link for a free one?

    I don't care about free. My data is worth more than the price of a few disks.

    The main reason I use any cloud storage is for disaster recover purposes. What if a fire destroys your drives? Would you be able to restore all of your data after that event? When I worked at The Travelers we had contingency plans for such events and part of it was off site storage and that's how I view cloud storage.

    But again.. to each his own.
    Just my 2c on the use.

    I was only joking really. I find it useful for synching settings and I also use it to store all my portable apps so when I set up a new Windows instance I just connect it to onedrive and there they all are.

    I do keep data there (and on dropbox as well) but I don't trust either of them enough not to keep a physical backup as well. You never know if T&C's will change or something will happen in the future (both MS and dropbox going out of business is unlikely I guess but you never know).

    That's fair enough then.

    By following the link OneDrive and signing on, I get my current Onedrive storage confirmed.

    Manageable enough to backup to removable storage if required.

    You realize it synchronizes between your PC and the cloud. It's in at least 2 places. Also, hard drives in your home may not protect you if your house burns down. (Happened to my sister). Cloud storage isn't necessary terrible. I am sure that MS does more backups than lots of normal folks.

    A bit off topic but what happens if you get a crypto virus? It will encrypt onedrive right?
