          Record all your data as videos then upload to youtube. Accessing it counts as views which will get you paid.

                            Yup, Microsoft used to have an unlimited cloud storage than someone uploaded 2-3 terabytes- and Microsoft penalized every user and permanently removed unlimited storage forever.

                                            Defragging back up drives is very quick. Because there is so little activity, they rarely get fragmented.

                                          One of the largest losses of data was 9/11 terrorist attacks. It had the whole tech industry rethink how backups are done.
                                          Overall a nice ad for Google Drive. All the YouTubers I know had lost their reps when demonetization hit a few years back.
