You're talking about your connection, that's not a cloud problem exactly, but it is related.

RAR is a really old format, and by combining files you increase your risk, as one compressed archive corrupting takes out a lot more files. It also won't help much as images are typically highly compressed already.

I use 'store' no compression for photos.
I get your point about a single file corrupted will mess up whole thing; however, I have many other backups, and also splitting and encrypting folders assures me my files wont be seen nor stolen by anyone.

I've started using Multipar and the par2 file format to add 5% redundancy to my compressed files, in case of minor corruption. It works with any file type, I use it with zip.
