    why
    i have about 300 games installed and they take up just over 2TB, so games CAN take up quite a bit of space

    but then, keyword, 300 games

    I was able to fill a 1TB with linux isos within months and that was over 10 years ago. I archived and backed up most of it because you can't find them anywhere anymore in great quality. I thought I lost it before and was ready to sacrifice a goat to get it all back (especially when Mega went down with a chunk of my backups).

    why
    there's plenty of ways to come up with that much space for backups tbh

    for example if i had to bckup all my drives i'd have to backup about 4.1tb

    This is kinda true, as long as you only use common phrases as your password. However, password length still trumps mixed characters, it just has to be long enough. For example, use any sentence in this reply as a password and whether you use a dictionary with an extremely good algorithm or brute force, it will take an impossibly long time to crack.

    But why would either of these use-cases require strong encryption, or any encryption at all? There's no sensitive data there.

    why
    some games that require login info or something that keep it in just a normal file?

    i know minecraft used to do that, and it kept you logged in

    Not really, no.

    I understand that he chinese government may spy at you, but you don't need the longest most strong password ever made to be safe.

    I just feel angry that cloud service provider restricted my account and i can't download any files stored there

    Just password the file that provider will lose the ability of file censorship

    [BUT IF sometimes passwords are too obvious or weak , It can decrypted very very easily!]

    So... you're mad that the provider you used restricted your account because you intentionally broke their terms and conditions.

    You can also use random.org to generate you a random password. Remembering it is the problem though.

    Yes , you're 1000% right
    I just use this trick easier said than done to break through that terms and conditions
    You'll just feel happy as long as the provider cannot censor you any more just because all of your files are locked/encrypted/winrared this crazy way

    NOT JUST generate ONCE , BUT no less than 100 times
