Before I retired, I helped initiate a migration of billions of records of finance, HR and student data, hundreds of millions of staff and student files, a million identities and hundreds of thousands of e-mail accounts to cloud providers (mostly Microsoft).

Jumped in with both feet.

Please provide a description of your cloud backup. My present backup is to external drives. Two kept in the Roadtrek and one on the house. When traveling I have one in the Roadtrek and two in the house. I found cloud backup too slow and more hassle, but that was a few years back.

I put things that I care about in the OneDrive folder on my PC where it's automatically sync'd to the OneDrive cloud and to my other PC's, tablets, and phones.

It's not quite the same as an offline backup, but because OneDrive has the ability to recover deleted files, keeps multiple versions of documents as they are edited, can reverse the effects of a ransomware attack, and because the documents can be sync'd to multiple devices, it's adequate for my purposes.

Because it's syncing, not backing up, uploads and downloads only occur when documents change or when new devices are sync'd. Sync speed is entirely dependent on bandwidth and syncing when mobile uses your data plan, so I often disable sync when using a hotspot with limited data and re-sync when I get home.

There are other cloud backup services that are strictly for backing up data, not for sync'ing it between devices. I prefer syncing though - then all my files are available to me from any device, anytime, anywhere.

I just ran across this article about Apple increasing the amount of encryption they use.


http://https://www.cnn.com/2022/12/0...ion/index.html


They claim the encrypted information could only be accessed by the creator and the recipient. Not even Apple could get it.


Sounds a lot better than having Microsoft handle the key for all our personal stuff, if I am understanding it correctly.

Regarding local NAS and upgrading to Windows 11, for me it's been a non-issue. I have a Western Digital My Cloud EX2 Ultra NAS connected to my local network. I use it for shared disk space accessible from two Windows PCs, both of which were upgraded from Windows 10 to Windows 11 with zero effect on their ability to access the NAS.
