I just read your article on Cloud back-up and you suggested MS OneDrive. I was wondering how do you get your documents on other devices? Also, how secure do you think the cloud is with all the hacking going on? I am just a little leery of the cloud for now.
Clair, it’s pretty easy to access items from OneDrive. If you have a Windows computer and a OneDive Account set up, it will appear as an option for saving or opening a file just like other drives on your computer.
The same is true for tablets and phones. If you want to access your OneDrive from someone else’s computer, (say a library or your work computer) you would got to OneDrive.com or to your Outlook.com account and log in. You would be able to open your files to read, edit, download or copy.
As for safety, so far OneDrive has proven to be secure. In today’s world, much of your information (bank accounts, credit cards, e-mail, SSN) are already in the cloud. But you can certainly choose not to save documents with sensitive information to cloud storage services.
