Windows 7: Microsoft Outlook, SkyDrive outages hit users worldwide

I've never had any data messed up. If it has a question which is the latest copy between my various devices it saves each version by the device name.

I don't use a cloud but do have a question.
Example:
Company Alfa is using company xxx for a cloud service. Company Alfa decides to change cloud service to company zzz.

1. How does company Alfa transfer all the date from cloud xxx to cloud zzz?

2. How does company Alfa wipe all the data that was in cloud xxx and verify that it is no longer there?

My concerns are that cloud xxx just might have your business locked up for ever because you will never know if your data with them is truly wiped from all their drives.
Now if cloud xxx somehow copied your data they would have all the time in the world to break encryption and do whatever with your data.
This cloud could be any place in the world so the laws and regulations at best would be variable and questionable.

Hi there
maybe the Mafia could even host some of your stuff on THEIR servers for NOTHING - they'd have all the time in the world to de-crypt / intercept your business data and just by siphoning off a teeny weeny bit they'd make FORTUNES before your company would even KNOW it's being ripped off --

With the speed and volume of transactions that some businesses handle every day I doubt whether a lot of accounting systems are robust enough to handle this -- even Banks who have had years of this type of stuff probably haven't a clue how much money they are holding at any particular instant - and always have a "contingency Fund" to repair errors.

The traders who get greedy on the trading floor will get noticed when a few million dollars goes "walkies" - but a couple of dollars here and a couple of dollars there removed from HUGE accounts might not be noticed for DECADES.

Cheers
jimbo

Terms of use are never really read completely by anyone,
Which Microsoft shifted the services to Word press so now you would have two terms of use to follow up on,
But I'm sure both have no liability of lost information,
And they do reserve the rights to delete/ ban.... information without notice.
So along that last line there would be the hint it has the ability to read all information stored there, Shared/ Private...
Then you enter the Hacking possibilities and also No Liability.

I would never use the cloud to store data on without a hard copy backup in several places. In my case I worked out an arrangement which puts my User folders in the cloud by moving them to Skydrive folder in its Windows app. By doing this on each of my devices I keep them synced between all devices in real time, plus have a copy on each HD.

It's all written up in Sync, Backup and Store your Files to the Cloud with Skydrive - Windows 7 Forums
which I admit I'm waiting for awhile to write up as a proper tutorial since I too consider this still experimental after over a year of using it without problems. It took a year to stop worrying about deleting something by mistake and having that sync - it's always in the Recycle Bin!

Hi Greg,
I did see your tutorial "work in progress" looks good,
I saw the other link to which your reviewing for insight,
I have to admit the skydrive folder/ sync features are not my cup of tea I prefer manual uploading but I do look forward to your updates,
Cheers.
