and lets not forget privacy...

At least if your files are local, even with a power cut I can get my nas hard drive plugged into my laptop and keep working.

Being reliant totally on external networks just doesn't add up, some day soon some kiddy scripter is going to do rm -rf on a cloud and possibly its backup.....

I would laugh my ass off if some hackers wiped one of the big cloud servers, and everyone found out they hadn't done backups that day.
