After some time of being absent due to heavy work load and studying, finally got the time to redo some of my configurations.
One note: Both systems are secure enough for my knowledge and usage, therefore the configurations I have applied are tailored to mainly gaming. Does not impact Working From Home since for work, I use a dedicated system managed by the company itself.

Good to see you around. Almost didn’t recognize the name with the avatar change.

Use any cloud services except cloud gaming?
Cloud gaming was an option I couldn't remove. I don't do cloud gaming actually.

As for cloud itself GDrive and onedrive contain some stuff but it's mainly from my phone as I'm too lazy to connect devices etc.
