@glitcher32 is that cloud storage? If so there's really no such thing. Keep your data on your devices not someone else's πŸ€“

@canony it does, but your stuff is still on a server you don't control.

You could lose access to the server.

The server could be damaged along with your data.

The server isn't as secure as they tell you and someone can see your stuff or just sit there for weeks trying to brute force your passwords to access what's there etc.

To many downsides imo to not having your data securely in your own hands. πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸ»

@Wetrix @glitcher32 You could encrypt your data prior to storing it in the cloud. Then you don't need to worry about the cloud provider's implementation.

@jj @glitcher32 good point. Never thought of that. πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸ»

@Wetrix @glitcher32 You might want to look into a rclone. I don't use it myself, but I have seen it in use and it can encrypt and decrypt your cloud backups on the fly. I personally back up to a hard drive, which is then completely disconnected and stored off-site. Storage is cheap enough that I can have multiple 1TB drives. I wouldn't rely on one backup. Just the other day I tried to access one of my backups and the drive was completely dead.
