    Windows 10 crashes randomly.

    You can use any file sharing service like Onedrive or dropbox or google drive.

    Windoes 10 keeps crashing

    Hi,

    Thanks for your help and interest.

    Most of my work files are on Dropbox, Google Drive or OneDrive, so if the computer crashes, I can still work on other computers and access the files.

    But I will make a backup on an external hard drive, as you recommended.

    Thanks again.

    One more reason I don't use and likely never will use any cloud based service.

    Two-factor authentication thwarts this.

    I have upgraded from Windows 10 Home to Windows 10 Pro just to regain Group Policy so that I will be able to disable OneDrive. It was the first thing I did right after the clean installation of the OS.

    You can simply not use it - you really don't need to 'disable' anything. You can got into the Task Monitor, and under 'start' disable the PC client from ever booting up. But if you simply don't use it, no problem.

    That's what she said was the reason she went to 10 Pro.

    It is history on my machine. I never like it anyway.

    This^ It's even in the source. "There isn't a simple fix," he said. Although many services now offer two-factor authentication and notifications when unauthorized access is detected -- such as from a new computer or an entirely different geography -- Schulman said many people either ignore those notifications or choose not to do anything about them." Just do something about it. Turn on two step protection.

    And to further add, the attacker has to get onto your computer first. In order to get that token file. So really the sky is not falling like some want to proclaim.
