    Aah, you have only one weekend to reserve a chance to storage your personal photos and documents on our servers, thus we can read it!
    Nah, thanks.

    I use One Drive for things not personal, if you have things you don't want people to see, refrain from putting it on there, I find that sharing things not personal between computers is OK:D

    It was reported a long time ago already! This is just a reminder that the action will be done now!

    Sometimes people need reminders for to refresh their memory!

    I'm not either, because I never had used it! Have my own cloud on my own server!

    This is true, and dosn't concern only MS. All software companies just allow you to USE their products, and not to GET them.

    I did not know you needed to do this. Nor have I ever been informed by anyone that you needed to do this. :eek:

    I imagine in 2 days there will be a lot of surprised people. :g:

    not sure how long that extra space was offered but I guess it was at least one year ago or even earlier. Anyway, all with the need of that extra space should act fast or even open a dummy acc and get that space twice :D

    I imagine in 2 days those surprised people will be M$ employees wondering why response was so poor.

    50GB for free at mega.nz and anything sensitive I put there is in a .rar/7z file encrypted with 10 mixed case characters. It will be a cold day in Hell when the NSA discovers where my hidden Milk Bone stash resides.

    I use mega.nz too, it's slower. Trying to find an integrated alternative that will not be slow with syncing and will not slow the computer's boot dramatically when connecting.

    If you use mail.ru cloud service, then you should know that they are have your files even after you delete them.
    For example, i have a big (150 GB) music collection that i created by myself. It's hashsums are unique, all files decoded to alac m4a with hand-redacted tags.
    These files was on servers even after six months after deleting from cloud... you know, they are all capable to syncing without transmitting any traffic bigger than 10 mb.
    so.

    I stopped using cloud hosted storage a few years ago after I built my own mini-itx 5TB storage server that is setting in my home office. This seamed to really be the only way I could pretty much guarantee the safety of my own data. I dont trust any one. haha.

    I certainly wouldn't upload anything to cloud storage that I wasn't comfortable with whole world potentiality gaining access to.

    That's how secure I think cloud storage is.
