Backup your Cloud Storage on a Local Drive

Having all your data in the cloud is a wonderful thing. BUT, sometimes you either want the peace of mind that you have a true local copy of the data or the ability to exit your cloud provider if you feel like it.

Having an exact replica of everything in the cloud on an external drive that you can store yourself definitely would give that.

Here in this video I show you an easy way to create exactly that, with a ‘one-click’ cmd file that will update the local copy with a mirrored version of the data in the cloud. It works on both OneDrive and pCloud, but to be honest it works with any directory or service you would have.

The video shows a complete walk through of that process end to end showing a real world example.

Of course, I do support the Cloud, sometimes though I am a bit old-school and want to have a local copy I can hold!

Thanks for looking at the channel and please subscribe for more cloud stuff like this.
