Oooppsss yes Jean. All my stored passwords of which there must be nearly 100 are stored in a password protected Word Doc and would go to One Drive.
It has been known for me to have to boot up an older PC used as a back up to access this doc. I think I will stay clear of online storage.

Ever thought about using a password manager, eg KeePass. Works on most operating systems and you only need to remember the one master password (just like your Word document). You can have it as a portable file on a usb stick.
And, most importantly, it's free.

Yes Gelly.
Every now and again I read in Computer Active about their recommendations for a password manager but I might be a bit of a dinosaur at times as I tend to stick with what I know and has worked well for many years. Some of these online 'thingeys' come and go apart from billions of hacks into large well known and supposedly protected sites. I also feel any USB stick can be lost, stolen or corrupted.

My Word Doc is available on my desktop and laptop plus the back up drive at all times. No internet, no problem. And now after my One Drive experience I'm even more convinced to keep everything within my grasp. Another benefit at my ages is in the event of me not being 'available' my wife and kids have access to all passwords via the protected doc.

Thanks anyway.

Depends how you set up your cloud storage. One Drive for example allows you to store on the PC and the cloud. You can set it to either just store in the cloud or on both the PC and the cloud. Doing the latter means I can still work on my documents offline and as soon as I am connected again it will update the Onedrive in the cloud. It works the other way round as well. If I work on another computer somewhere else I can sign in to Onedrive, work on a document and as soon as I switch my laptop or PC on at home it will download the new or changed document.

If you are using Onedrive and all your folders have a green tick on them like the example below then they are stored on that PC and in the cloud.

OK Baz, thats clever. All I got was red crosses. Yes I know it was because it was trying to upload too much stuff but I found deleting it all the best option.
Many times I have downloaded something only to regret later and back track. I guess I have lost some adventurous ideas.

Can you have more than one One Drive account to get more free space?

Guess it's a matter of what you are comfortable with and that's not wrong.
I don't even have a byte of data stored online!
For your family to get access to your Word document they'll need the password for it just the same as a password for KeePass.
I've got direct access to my KeePass on multiple Linux, Windows 7, Windows 10 and Android machines (excluding two USB sticks).
Anyway, if Word works for you

I guess so if you use different email addresses to sign up but I wouldnt go down that route if I were you. could get messy and its still only 5gb at a time.

When I first synced mine I did it on a customer site with really fast internet. It would have taken about a week or more to sync here on our crappy connection. That was probably your issue. The upload speed on standard ADSL broadband is much slower than the download.
