Hello, newb here.
I’ve been learning about MaidSafe and read its white paper and really like the idea of a decentralized cloud storage system as opposed to centralized and vulnerable cloud storage services we see today.
However, I’m struggling to see how the safe network would truly lack a “single point of failure,” as argued in its white paper. If a file owner’s hard drive corrupts/fails and the owner loses his keys, then doesn’t he lose complete access to all of his files stored on the safe network?
Also, if the owner buys a new computer, does he need to continue to use his old computer’s hard drive to access his keys? Or can they be transferred to his new computer’s hard drive?
