Feedback on private, secure cloud storage / backup given to Least Authority

On my ToDo list for months has been check if i can still access my data and then re-up the subscription. I own my failings, but i suspect other humans share them. Perhaps tiers of data security in one service could be an answer? One tier, the lowest, can be recovered with a password reset to e-mail, so the private key actually stored somewhere with you.
