Like Google Drive, One Drive Deleted my Paid-Personal Cloud Content (tv series) – Never Happened with iCloud
My primary paid cloud storage provider was at one point Google Drive. I have lots of old classic paid-for-sci-fi series from the 60-90’s that I like to rewatch and had ripped these TV series into files to store in my personal (non shared) cloud storage so I could re-watch and always have as a back-up digital file.
Anyways, Google Drive began deleting my TV series – no notice, no emails – they just disappeared. I tried again – disappeared again in a week. By that time, I had already changed both my phone and laptop to iPhone and MBP and started to use a paid iCloud subscription – I did the same thing and placed my TV series in my personal folder that I do not share with anyone – it’s been there since day #1 untouched.
I ended up purchasing a Office 365 subscription for school/work and ended up doing the same thing with the same series. Just to see how it would compare to iCloud – I basically mirrored what I had in my iCloud. Not even two weeks later, my TV series were all deleted again. I tried again yesterday and they were deleted yet again within 2 days.
I thought I would share this with you because I find it absolutely ridiculous that both Google and Microsoft have the ability to delete my personal content and snoop into my files [example twilight zone classic or dvd rips tales from the crypt, etc.) (perhaps this is an automated system?), meanwhile Apple does no such thing and leaves my content alone.
Anyone else have this happen?
