Does my whatsapp to google drive count?
True. Online storage has no guarantee of recovery.it should be noted that "back up" vs online storage are technically two different things. The fact that e.g. MS OneDrive and Google Drive does versioning occasionally further obfuscates things.
Tp me a backup system means multi-versioned (albeit at some limit) file backup which is performed either on the fly or at a set period which allows for recovery. The latter rules out iCloud as a backup (try restoring something u by mistake deleted and synced the action to the cloud). Something like BackBlaze would be a true online backup service or Apple Time Machine (on a local server).
I hope for your sake you back up your google data.. if for whatever reason your account is blocked like mine was because someone claimed I was spamming (no proof so got it back 6 months later) then you will lose access to EVERYTHING.Yes,
Google Drive for documents and odds and ends
Youtube for videos
Google photos for photos
Google Music for unreleased music
Google books for ebooks from Kobo and Amazon store
Gmail for mails
Chrome sync for bookmarks and passwords (backup for lastpass).
Yes, and when you return the storage they sent to you within 30 days, they will refund you for your 'shipping' expense. We run Business Groups, but Backblaze isn't a DRaaS, where Crashplan has an advantage. If you want DRaaS, invest in it.
Not really scared. Turned it into a US account before and got a Google voice number.I hope for your sake you back up your google data.. if for whatever reason your account is blocked like mine was because someone claimed I was spamming (no proof so got it back 6 months later) then you will lose access to EVERYTHING.
And it will only be unblocked when someone with the appropriate clearance can clear the infraction. During this time you continue to pay for your subscriptions with no access and all support will tell you they can do nothing.
If you don’t use multi-platforms to back up you taking this risk
Incorrect. Many companies are misusing the term for marketing hype but it's actually multiple distributed servers with their resources pooled for immediate allocation rather than being provisioned with demand.No, it's not. Cloud is just a server that is available online. What you are describing is a third-party cloud service, while mine is a private cloud.
