How it works

What is Cloud Storage?

Cloud storage is a global network of servers acting as one large and remote hard drive. In simpler terms, it is an internet-based ‘locker’ where you can save and access all your files, such as photos, videos and documents. The cloud can be accessed from any device that has internet connection, including a computer, smartphone, laptop and tablet. Popular examples of cloud storage services include Google DriveiCloud and OneDrive 

Microsoft’s cloud is also extremely secure. Much more than your home computer, Microsoft OneDrive is even trusted by the UK’s Police for the storage of Official Data.

We use Microsoft OneDrive to deliver our service

You can use your existing service

The elegance of our service is that we use what you already have, maximising the value of your investment.

We can help you set it up

If you don’t have an existing Microsoft OneDrive or 365 account, we can help you set one up.

The Setup

Our service works with any computer running either Windows 10 or macOS Catalina/Big Sur.

We check that OneDrive is working properly. You then share a password-protected, read-only link with us. You don’t need to remember this link. That’s our job. We keep it safe, secure and secret until it’s needed. Remember, we won’t have the password so we won’t be able to see your stuff.

It’s safe, secure and secret

Your Digital Legacy link has a password which we won’t have. This means that nobody can read or look at your content. Of course, you need to keep the password somewhere safe. Maybe add it to your will or share it with your executor?

Making sure it’s working

We really hope that we’re building a long-term relationship. Like all relationships, ours will need a little TLC, so every month we will check in, test that the link is still working and drop you an email to let you know that all is well.

You can also call us at any time if you would like us to check that you are storing your files in the right place.

Why Microsoft?

Microsoft OneDrive is the only cloud-storage solution that offers password-protection. We have asked Apple and Google to add a password-protected sharing facility as soon as possible.
