Default Storage my clips
Good morning fellow looners,
I have a question: so I have a USB key with all my favourite looner clips, around 20GB, with many different kinds of clip (I mean even including nudity).
I'm wondering where I might storage all the clips to safe them in case my USB key would brokes, I have been thinking online storage, but I worry if they would ban me or if someone could to see my clips.
Any tips? Thank you.

If you’ve got a router at home Western Digital do a thing called My Cloud which is a 4 or 8TB storage device you plug into your router at home. You can via an app access this device anywhere in the world providing you’ve got WiFi access which is great for uploading photos to if say your travelling the world.

You could also buy an SDD caddy and put a solid state hard drive into it and format it for use as an external drive. I do this each year to store my DSLr camera’s .RAW files off my camera which otherwise eat up the hard drive in my laptop if I keep them on there.

Other than that just back up your files to second usb stick so you’ve a separate mirror image should the other stick fail.

Do you think it would be a safety space to storage my clips? Even if their content are explicit?

I've been uploading movies and photos to cloud-based dropbox.com for years. What is interesting is that old movie formats that my computer won't run without additional software, run on dropbox. I can also create share files or just mark them for me alone. I suspect other online cloud services will let you do the same. My dropbox account can hold up to 1 TB.

Do you feel safe about privacy using dropbox?

My clips are stored on multiple hard drives that I have in my PC. Also stored on a USB backup drive and DVD/Blu-ray discs. Nothing like being over cautious ;-)

A cloud service like Dropbox or Google Disk is probably your best choice. Google has 15 GB storage for free and their 100/200 GB plans are quite reasonable if you need it.
Alternatively use multiple flashdrives/external harddrives for backups. I always make sure I have my favorite videos backed up on a separate disk somewhere.

Only you can see the files, unless you give anyone else permission to see them.
