Never lose your files
What to do if the cloud disappears
there are so many options when it comes to hosting your data in the cloud ‚ that you could almost do away with local drives. iCloud, OneDrive, Google Drive, Evernote, Flickr, WordPress, Hotmail‚ the list goes on.
But what would happen if one of these services went offline? How much data would you lose? All your photos and emails? Months of work in an online office suite? If you think this is melodramatic, then consider this less extreme scenario: a glitch on your line cuts off your broadband. Would you be able to carry on working, or would you be cut off from your files until your service came back?
Over the next few pages we show you how to make a backup of some cloud services that, unlike Dropbox and iCloud Drive‚ don’t automatically replicate themselves on your Mac.
