Some people don't realize or understand that when you store files "in the cloud" that just means that you're putting your stuff onto someone else's computer and hoping that the someone else will look after them for you.

I've been playing with and programming computers for over 40 years (yeesh) and it's my opinion that if you don't have your files on a system that's under your control then you really can't count on having access to them over the longer term. I have files on my computer that date to the 70's and probably a few that are older than that. I know exactly where they are, I can refer to them any time that I want to, if I decide to delete something I know that it's actually deleted and isn't a hidden file on someone else's server, and if someone goes out of business or sells out I don't have to wonder where my data ended up.

Qnap file servers are a relatively reasonable price these days; I keep one in a closet and do automatic backups to that from my various computers. You might want to consider one of those. I personally use only nfs on mine, but they natively support numerous other protocols including ftp, afp, webdav and smb if you need that sort of thing.

This isn't for backup, it's for easy access to lead sheets for practice/gigs with my band.

What happens if you're playing in a location without network access?

Flash drives come in some big sizes now; if you put your scores on something like that you won't have to worry about downloading them.
