Well I'd say the most confidential data would be documents on my finances, such as bank account statements I downloaded, scans of lease agreements for the properties I let, and even a Word document where I wrote the log in details of all of my accounts (but not the whole password, just a hint that should allow me to remember in case I start forgetting things). I store all those on the external disk drive, I guess it's safer than Google Drive?tibbitts wrote: ↑Wed Sep 09, 2020 9:31 pmI only store my most critical documents on the cloud (Google Drive or whatever) now, but since I no longer have an office (outside my home), I've lost transparent access to offsite storage for one of my backup external drives. To some extent that should factor into whether to use the cloud vs. external drive backup. If you have very confidential data (what do you consider confidential?) you could encrypt it, the complexity and effectiveness of which varies with different cloud providers.steve321 wrote: ↑Wed Sep 09, 2020 9:03 pmI have one external disk, so I guess I should buy another? Also, I thought perhaps of saving at least the most important data on Google Drive. Is that a good plan? Is that safe and is it all right to stock confidential data?
I also put my pictures on Amazon in a space where you have unlimited storage for pics.
But for al the rest I think Google Drive should be fine, right?
