If you're using google you get what you deserve

They deleted 2 years of video content of mine, including a second "mirror" channel that I thought would protect the files.

There were about 50 videos and all 2 hours+ and I was living out of a backpack so SSDs hadn't become cheap or even available yet.

My first name last name google account is still nuked and I'm not even allowed to go to youtube dot come if I'm logged in. If I make a new account they recognize my birthday.

Evil bastards. Learned my lesson.

Ok but who else are you going to use? We can’t go back to emailing documents back and forth

Drop Box, Mega Upload, there's a ton of file sharing sites out there

Real ID Computer login, where the government can wipe your hard drive at the slightest of provocations.

Don't be naive enough to think that those companies won't be proselytes for the control grid when this happens.

None of them let you update in real time the way drive does, especially not for free. I haven't used dropbox But box literally takes you into a google drive doc before returning to Box when you make edits

You're right though in that there are other cloud storage providers, just nobody that does real time updates, and nobody who does it nearly as well as Google

Dropbox does do document sharing now but fuck it’s clunky to use.

with Google drive (i even do the following on my phone)

you need to rename files with a code that only you understand. or even better yet, compress the file with a password as well as renaming, then store it on Google drive.

rename it nscvdtstay (nursing covid death state)

Ahh yes best to use a service that openly states they look through your documents and is proudly owned by the enemy and happily preemptively collaborates with the socialist government.

Why not?

Because if Phil Kerpen, for example, had been using email there's no way he would have been successful enough to have ever been noticed. There's a reason companies like Gab started off by getting deplatformed from everything imaginable even though it was obvious from the start this would happen; it's because if Torba had to stand up his own servers and support software from the start he would never have been able to build Gab in time to be anything interesting.

What does using email have to do with getting noticed. He kept his data in the cloud and now it's gone.

This is why you should host your own stuff or put it up on blockchain https://akord.com/

If you're going to use file cabinets, it might also make sense to learn how to make a card catalog so you can still find shit after the lights go out.

Evernote folks, use Evernote.

If they haven't nuked it, you might consider getting OpenOffice and copying the data into it. (I'd say LibreOffice but its spreadsheet program has unacknowledged formula-breaking bugs).

Maybe rename it?

Malware? Appeal it: the document isn't a virus, it merely talks about one.

Malware "and other similar malicious content," obviously meant to refer to "disinformation."

I feel like we accepted that certain combinations of words are especially dangerous without ever testing whether they are.

Why are you using cloud services? You don’t own your files once you do.
