I keep my files backed up on a flash drive, but I recently thought an online backup would be a good second backup, so I used Microsoft OneDrive. I uploaded everything I had around January. Now my laptop is dead, so I'm glad to have backed up my data on my flash drive. I decided to also go to my OneDrive account to makes sure my data was still there. When I logged in, I got a message saying my account was suspended due to spamming coming from my account. Huh?!?! It also said I can reactivate my account by giving my phone number to which they'd text a 4 digit code that would unlock my account. I did that, but then was told it would take about an hour before my account became active again. I checked it again the next day (today) and my account was indeed active again, but it was also completely empty! All my files are gone!
So don't count on this service to keep your information safe. Mine was lost within 6 months. And yes, I used a very complicated and long password for the account, so there's no way anyone could have hacked it.
