The flow of my work is 100% reversed from what it was 10 years ago. Used to be that I created sites on my C:, then pushed them to the server. Now I work on the server (or in a sandbox server), and download finished work back to my C: for safekeeping.
Much of my stuff is on rented servers that are, through maintained by someone else, actually mine insomuchas no random Microsoft cubiclejockey is going to be poking their nose into it.
As for 3rd party cloud storage like Gmail, Hotmail, SkyDrive, Amazon S3, Flickr, Facebook, etc - I trust the places that I store my data, because they haven't yet given me any reason not to. It's a fragile trust though.
Truly irreplacable data like digital family photos, I make sure they are burned on multiple CDR's and stored in a moisture-free fireproof hideaway
