Backing up files on VW Cloud Services

Recommended Posts

Is it advisable or necessary to backup files stored on VW Cloud Services? I store all my VW files there, but how safe are they up there in the sky?

It is always advisable to keep a local backup of files stored in any cloud service.


Even though VW most likely has redudancy built into there system to safeguard against data loss you don't want to get into a situation where something goes wrong (fire, hackers, bankruptcy (not likely with VW) or whatever else) and you have very limited time to download your files or lose them after all. Even if it is just as a safeguard against temporary unavailability so that you can at least continue to work on you files (This has e.g. happened with Amazon's AWS last year or two years ago when a considerable part of their cloud was not available for several days for some of their clients, regardless of whether they were using Amazon AWS directly or indirectly because their (software) provider was using AWS for their cloud environment).
