Subject description: Do you really need this digital stuff anymore? Maybe it's time to do a cleanup
 

https://www.wired.com/2017/05/spring-clean-digital-clutter-protect/

An article about digital stuff we don't need anymore but that we keep anyway.

Most people have old email accounts floating around, forgotten thumb drives in a drawer, and years-worth of crap in a downloads folder. All that stuff is a liability. Saving data that you want or that will someday come in handy is…sort of the whole point of the digital revolution, but holding on to accounts and files that you don’t actually want anymore needlessly exposes you to all sorts of risks. Your devices can be lost or stolen (or hacked) and big companies can suffer data breaches that incidentally expose your information. So the less there is out there, the better off you are.

I will opine that this sort of talk makes "the cloud" a junk-drawer waiting to be pilfered.
Unfortunately, business stores a lot of "valuable" personal ID in the same cloud.
Besides, FTP is on the way out... straight U/L or D/L with encryption (TLS1.2 256bit fs as a minimum) is the "new" way... never mind that ISP in the middle. Look for the GREEN https header, else no deal.
