That stinks, Jim! For mine, the only person who can decide what happens to personal files/date is the owner of those files/data. If you want files to be private or public it should be your decision, not some upstart executive's.
Sadly, a lot of software developers [cloud based included] have taken leaves out of Microsoft's, Apple's books... in laying down the law and telling users what they can or can't do instead of best catering to users wants and needs. Worse still, most software and OSes will become subscription models that are based in the cloud, not one one's PC, and while that may be okay for the modern yuppy set, it isn't what we older users want or will accept with open arms.
