Cloud computing has completely changed the way people interact with documents on computers and mobile devices. Before cloud computing reached the mainstream, people would commonly store data on disk-based hard drives or quickly lost flash drives.

By saving these documents in the cloud, users are usually able to make save states. If a record vanished unexpectedly, you could restore cloud documents readily with this feature.
Scaling based on necessity
You may be in a situation where your hard drive is completely maxed out, and you are tired of attaching USB drives to your computer. Transferring data to a bigger hard drive is a grue
