things that are in the cloud can be blown away - like clouds . 

Beatrice Otter:

This isn't stuff in the cloud. Cloud storage is when someone else owns the drives and servers that the data is on, and you possess no physical access to it. Your only option to access, with cloud-stored data, is over the internet. This is a drive that you own and physically possess, so you are storing your data on your own drive and it's all yours. BUT it also connects to the internet so you can upload to it from anywhere. You don't have to connect it to the internet; that is an optional feature.
