    Storage in The Cloud

    I'm interested to know who is using cloud storage and how you are using it.
    Are you syncing your laptop or desktop contents to the cloud?
    Are you using a back up service like carbonite?
    Are you using a personal cloud hard drive like My Cloud?

    Recommendations? Problems? Security concerns?

    I had a hard drive crash a while back and lost a bunch of stuff. I bought a "My Cloud" HD and have been having a horrible experience with it.

    Then my wife got a MS Surface, and it came with 2 years of 200 GB storage on Onedrive. So I swiped that from her, and have it set up, but I'm still deciding the best way to use it.

    I use Dropbox and have done for a few years. It is very useful for business and sharing files with work colleagues. For backup, I backup using Time Capsule to a remote hard drive, and also use a secondary for important stuff as a just in case. I also use Dropbox to backup business project files that I am currently working on so that I have a quick reference if the worst happens and I lose stuff temporarily...

    I'm thinking of putting basically all my stuff (documents, pictures, videos, music folders) into my Onedrive folder. Then they would all be accessible from anywhere when I don't have my laptop with me.

    I think Onedrive and Dropbox are about the same. I like Dropbox but got Onedrive for free, and even when I have to pay, Dropbox is twice the price for some reason.

    The only reason I use D'box is because it is pretty much my industry standard, and people are used to it... it is free up to a point, but with sharing video clips and heavy graphic and CAD files, I do have to pay for it now. It is deductible tho!

    The bottom line is don't store your nude pics on the cloud.

    yeah, you're pretty safe as long as you don't put your nude selfies with any of the Karkrashian Krowd up there...
