Windows 10: Microsoft apologizes for offending OneDrive fans, but won't restore un
Everything I have stored on OneDrive is also stored on two hard drives. One drive is a internal HDD and the other one is a USB HDD drive. I also have copies of the photos I've scanned on cd/dvd. I would never depend on the cloud as my only backup source.
You worry too much. None of that has ever happened during my 78 years.
I have a Toshiba 4TB Exteria hard drive on both my computers to back up once a week and if I put something important on them in between the weekly back up's
I do a manual back up
That is why you cancel it the day you start the subscription. You already have the time you bought, canceling the subscription right then will not remove that time. It will merely stop the subscription from renewing.
Yup, thats what I do...
I never say that it will happen to everyone and that is good, I don't go around hoping that everyone has some kind of disaster.
But you can dismiss that it will never happen to anyone. If you look there is quite lot of examples. If your profile is correct you live in Germany at least you don't have to worry about earthquakes/tsunamis etc because chance to have one over there is very slim close to 0 but not 0. There is lots of natural disasters that don't leave much time to take your data when they come. House fires although doesn't happen to everyone in their lifetimes isn't so uncommon that it will not happen to someone.
There is never enough preparation for emergency. And I'm not the type that worry too much or is paranoid. My wife insist that i don't worry enough about emergency supplies etc. in case of big earthquake and tsunami like one in 2011 Tohoku. I live like few hundred kilometers from that earthquake's epicenter.
flooding regularly happens in Germany and will continue to get worse !! so even in a sophisticated rich country like Germany you can't guarantee that the servers or your property will be immune to those sort of problems.
Like any sort of insurance it's risk assessment --depends on how valuable you think your data is and what is the value or effort of protecting it.
Some things are beyond monetary value and can't be replaced.
The little river that runs thru our town is about 50 meters below my house. I don't think it will get me. Here is a view from my living room window.
just activated it
Nice front yard Wolfgang.
It's simple folks.
One has to put their own value on their own data of all kinds.
Then one has to decide what methods to protect that data.
To me storage is cheap. Years ago 1 TB would cost as much as a car. Today it cost as much as a dinner in a good
For me Clouds are foolish.
First one has to be confident that the Cloud will be there tomorrow. Some Cloud companies have went under.
Some Cloud companies keep changing the rules.
If you decide to move from one Cloud company to another Cloud company are you really sure that all your data
is erase/deleted from the old Cloud company?
We all have been using Clouds for ever. It's called email which is stored in a Cloud. I do believe most of us know that
email account get hacked often.
I really can't think of much that doesn't get hacked once stored on a remote location. I'm thinking of bank accounts, credit card accounts, Paypal accounts, Ebay accounts, Hillary's email and on and on. They all have been hacked.
Once your date is left in the hands of someone else it is less secure.
To me my data has less chance of damage or stolen because of floods, fires or a thief than it does being stored in a Cloud.
One just has to make a informed decision on what methods to use for their data.
I personally make backups to a external drive and store it in my home.
If my house burns down I got bigger problems. If a thief breaks in, well I need the target practice.
If a government agency need to have a look all they have to do is bring fresh coffee and look until they get bored.
I told you I do thing simple.
