        Isn't the purpose of a backup to be reliable? I wouldn't call the immediate threat of Google Thanos-snapping your backup out of their servers "reliable"

                  @jerkshop Yeah it's a program for windows that probably has no user interface so it's controlled via console (cmd)

                  The Console "thing" is just a windows bash console (cmd.exe)

                Just poked around online and it looks like Backblaze offers unlimited personal storage with unlimited file size and unlimited bandwidth for $6 a month, or $60 if you get a whole year. I believe that's the cheapest unlimited unrestricted un-throttled storage available currently. Not intentionally plugging the company but i was watching this video for a reason LoL i was looking for a good place to store about 15TB of personal video data for cheap. Worth a look.

                                                      Wikipedia says something like micro SDUC (SD 4.0) will have a capacity of 2 - 128 TB some day, so, at a rate of times 2 each year, we are at 1 TB, 2020 we might have 2 TB, 2021 4TB, 2022 8TB, 2023 16TB, 2024 32TB, 2025 64TB, 2026 128TB on one micro SD card. I also heard of 100TB SSDs for a high price already possible.
