How many large files do you usually upload?
How large each file is?
How much complexity did you added to encrypt your files?

Depends upon the connection speed I have. It is quite variable in this country.
With faster connections I will do things involving bigger files. It is the bandwidth equivalent of storage space, which is to say if you have it then I will find a use.

Again depends upon the speed I have. Can be anything from gigabytes and gigabytes if doing video to a couple of bytes for other projects. If it is going to take hours then most people I do stuff involving big files for I will probably go to in person. Said person may also have a fast connection I can use too -- the latency sucks never underestimate the bandwidth of a car with a boot full of hard drives.

Crypto? Most times I don't need it as I don't have much in the way of private data -- my CV is probably being sent to people as morally reprehensible as job recruiters/job agencies and my accounts say I am broke which I will tell you for free. If someone wants to intercept my video file I am sending to a client which is advertising something that they are advertising/showcasing then OK, same if they want to get a video featuring or clearly made by me.
If it is a small file under about 500 megs (though in that case it is usually more like 50) then I am OK with the passworded (maybe also encrypted file names) options of something like 7zip as I will probably be compressing the thing as it tends to be made up of multiple files anyway.

All my photos are on my unlimited online cloud storage. They take care of encryption. Each photo comes from my phone camera so it's 5-10MB a file.

How many large files do you usually upload?none, I guess. my connection is bad (80-120Kb/s upload?)
How large each file is? ~10Mb file size (USBGX release), I don't need to upload anything else. It takes hours if I want to share something bigger.
How much complexity did you added to encrypt your files? not needed, I don't upload sensitive data.

I've followed your advice on uploading files hidden inside an image to sites like wenku.baidu.com but it didn't really work for me. Mainly because I'm not chinese.
As SD cards are getting cheaper and cheaper, they're a viable solution for storage. That or just buying a cheap 1 TB WD HDD (not an advert).

But files like youtube 4K and 1080P videos are extremely large , even with my 25T tencent cloud disk that's not big enough for my super backup plan

I always upload very large files to all cloud services 24*7 But that tiny 50GB space is absolutely not enough for me

I will just upload everything on any computer to this cloud drive , like it's forever unlimited storage

Why not compress those files and save some space.

I want to store large amount of illegal contents 【for example porn,violance,warez or something bad like that】but don't want banned from the network service provider , so i need to encrypt the files carefully 【compress make the file data lost and unreadable】and avoid making obvious account activity in order to keep my illegal contents on the cloud disk for a long time

--------------------- MERGED ---------------------------

I was banned by the same internet content provider tencent more than 3 times for uploading porn contents to the cloud service
I begged their customer support to unlock my account and promise i will not upload such contents any more ,but i just keep upload such things
So over and over again i learned that encryption solve this tricky question completely without any messy situation

The first time my account was unlocked successfully and then i start upload large amount of harmful information to their cloud services
and my account was locked again in the evening around 11PM

In the next day i called the customer support for account unlock , but they refused "Our company aims for healthy internet environment , your account uploaded large amount of illegal contents that violates china internet regulations, for this reason your account cannot be unlocked"

I begged and begged my account was unlocked again!
Then i heavily encrypt / winrar absolutely all file that i upload to tencent services , no matter that file is just a simple txt/word/excel/ppt or anything
And then!No more account locked events happened any more!
I'm free with uploading large amount of illeagal content to the cloud services again!again!

--------------------- MERGED ---------------------------

I feel helpless when i can't access to my account with large amount of illeagal content since that day my account was locked
But i feel resurrection after they give a chance to me , and i fooled them i will not be bad anymore
Winrar gave me a weapon to fight for information censorship , and i just want to let everyone on any internet forums to know about it that encryption can kill all kinds of information censorship for no matter what cloud services you're using

You could also probably add an extra layer of security by not bragging about all your illegal content to a bunch of strangers on a gaming forum...

How many large files do you usually upload? I usually only upload images, and those are pretty small anyway.
How large each file is? Around 0.5-8 MB.
How much complexity did you added to encrypt your files? Why would I want to encrypt my files? ...Wait. You're that lad who wanted everyone to encrypt anything they upload anywhere, aren't you?

I don’t upload anything file wise, I’ve been looking at cctv cameras that use the cloud and local storage so that could change soon. 2mb/s needed for upload.
