    I use Google Drive, cant say I'm that concerned about security tbh as I dont have anything that important on it, mainly revision notes and a few documents.

    I use OneDrive for Business, I only put documentation and notes that I access frequently... At some point I was thinking of backing up all my data to the cloud by using a company like CrashPlan or Amazon's Glacier service. Still up for debate on that one!

    Interestingly I know of one of the very large IT companies who are starting to rollout crashplan to their users, would hope they've done their due diligence on the solution.
    Although not sure how they are using it, can it be used to backup to a non crashplan cloud?

    I have Dropbox and OneDrive, I don't keep anything on there that I can't afford to lose, instead I back it up at home to multiple locations and devices.

    Dropbox and Google drive but similar to others, nothing of anything significance so don't think too much on security. I think I'm quite boring ha ha

    I was actually thinking about this yesterday some more. Most of my data is cloud driven.. For example, all my music is in iTunes and I use the iTunes Match service so that I can access my library from Apple's cloud any time. This means that I don't have to really focus on backing up my music.

    For movies/series, again, I use Netflix, iTunes (to subscribe to shows and movies), YouTube, Plex, etc.... All of these services are cloud based, again, nothing for me to backup.

    Games, all my games are from Steam, Origin, and Uplay, again, all in the cloud...

    So when I really think about backing up my data, all I have are my documents and pictures, for pictures I can easily use a service like Flickr and for the the documents is all I have to worry about. Not much data to backup so I just use OneDrive for it.

    So in the end, most of the services are already cloud based, no need to keep them locally!

    I use Dropbox with Sookasa for encryption and I also use SkyDrive as for some reason I have 40GB of storage which I gather is not the norm, no idea why I have that much though!
