    FYI, after watching this gave it a shot to back up around 40gb of files. Got a little over 1mbps upload speeds. When chatting with support about the upload speed they said, "what happens is that due to the scanning process Google Drive does to the videos before uploading them completely at a normal speed, we don't really have a way to speed up the process. For now the only option will be to wait until it finishes." I figured I could get faster speeds since in this video you guys hit a 750gb upload cap in a day. Maybe that was true a year ago. It would take 8 days to hit that upload cap now at the speeds I was getting, if my math is right.

    I use a free solution called RU-clip and then I can use something called "Google Takeout" to download the original file - It's totally unlimited with just two drawbacks

    1) You have to wait for your zipped archive to be ready to download
    2) Either all my uploaded data comes to less than 50GB OR the maximum archive size is 50GB - So whilst it's no good for Linus (unless he wants to download 14,000 50GB ZIP files) it might be good for other people who need to backup video files

    Hey Linus why Don't you build your backup data sarver in another place like outside of your office or your home or make a small safe house to just save the data on your own sarver it will cost you less you do the math

      No it isn't, that other 4gb is most likely in use already, video ram is separate from normal ram on a desktop PC

    You do realize that youtube keeps the original files? you upload and you can request to download them.
    I am not sure what purpose there is to backing up content to which is already on the cloud ie youtube.

    whoever suggested to use cloud storage.. does not know how money or tech works

    using cloud storage only makes sense for storing small amounts of data for shorter periods of times
    to store large amounts you want to setup your own storage

    it'd be like renting a car for years instead of just buying one
    renting/leasing whatever only makes sense in small quantities when you have no other options

    I am pretty sure they would love your data being given to them for free. Plus Google Drive has an awesome OCR and indexing. I had multiple receipts that I had scanned and had my printer automatically name them like "scan_001", "scan_002" etc. and using keywords, I was able to find them in seconds. I don't know about you but that's a useful feature for 0.79 per month.
