Free Cloud storage equipped with encryption, securely stored and accessible from anywhere in the world!
Cloud storage or cloud storage is nowadays unthinkable in the private and business sector. It is used daily, you hear and see it everywhere and even hear it on TV and radio. But, what is cloud storage?
You simply store your documents, photos and other data in the cloud and can therefore access, edit and send your data from any device anywhere in the world.
So it is basically an online hard drive / place where you store all the data you would like to put online and access from anywhere in the world.
The files are almost always stored fully encrypted, which means that as soon as an intruder can get to your online storage or physically steal the data from the data center, he can’t open or read it because he doesn’t have the right key to view it. This makes your data absolutely safe on the internet.
How cloud storage works is super simple. Once you install the software from one of the free companies above, you often get a specific folder on your device.
This folder is in sync with the cloud storage. In short, this means that whatever you save in the folder will also be automatically uploaded to the cloud and thus accessible from anywhere in the world.
If you delete something from the folder, it is also gone in the cloud, so pay attention to that!
Most free storage companies also have version management built into the software. Say you place a Microsoft Word document with text in the cloud folder and update it after a few days, so you could go back in time if you wanted to and restore the previous (first) version. Ideal if, for example, you made a mistake or want to bring something back in time.
Nowadays every cloud provider has written an APP or a piece of software. As a result, you can access your data on all of the following devices and often even edit or create data outside of your PC.
It is impossible to imagine most devices without it. For example, Android devices work very closely with Google Drive and store files/photos and unused data in the cloud to save space on the local hard drive.
Apple IOS does this with their iCloud solution. The iPhones, iPads,Macbooks, iMacs also do this. Frequently used files they keep locally. The unused files or photos go to the cloud to save a lot of space locally. Super efficient right?
