Question by Russell S: Should I risk cloud storage on my xbox?
With the recent hacking that has been going on I’m debating whether I should transfer all of my save files over to cloud storage. If Microsoft gets hacked again I risk losing all of my progress. Does anyone know if cloud storage is safe? I mean, do they put the saved files on a server nobody knows about or is it the same one that xbox live is on?
Yes there was recent hacking on xbox live as well, there was a hacker who got into peoples’ accounts, stole their points, and left sort of a calling card by earning 3 achievements on FIFA 12 (I don’t play soccer games and never will.). So I know what I’m talking about.

First off, I’m not sure I know what you are talking about when you say “recent hacking” to XBox Live… I don’t know of any hacking to XBox Live… maybe you are mistaking it with PlayStation Network? Or maybe you are referring to hacking on games such as Modern Warfare 2 and such… if you are that is a game issue, not an XBox Live issue…
Anyways, as far as I have been able to determine, the Cloud Storage is perfectly secure. It is on a separate server from the XBox Live server itself (in the same building though) and I am yet to have any problems with it.
