Why this game has no cloud save system?
As it is a paid game, Steam should have a cloud save like others. For example, if you install this game after resetting Windows, everything will be gone. LOL

See link above.

Cloud storage of 7d2d saves is impractical due to the large file size(s).

Many recommend making your own backups...

So don't reinstall Windows without backing up your saves L.O.L. Your data security is your own issue to deal with.

USB sticks with huge capacities cost buttons nowadays. Anyone who really cares about any particular piece of data security (edit: in the context of having a backup) will be making backups on media under their control rather than (or at least in addition to) under the control of a business that stores the data on internet-facing hardware, where it will be compromised sooner or later because online security is a low priority for most businesses.

Also, it's not possible with 7DTD anyway, as explained above.

You can laugh at it all you like, but you're just making yourself look silly by doing so. Should I laugh at you for trading security for convenience?

I still keep a few around that I use regularly in ranges from 16-64GB. Mostly use them for transferring files to computers on segregated networks or that are not network connected.

If I need anything larger than that, I've got a large SSD and an adapter.

Well yes. How do you install your Windows otherwise?

Oh I don't buy any of them. They come to me as "bonus" material when ordering other things, or from vendors.

If I were to actually go out and buy a thumbstick, it would be one of the 1TB models.

Yes, they're still a thing. They're very cheap and very portable and USB is almost universally supported, so there's still a market for them. I have two I use for smaller files that I want a portable backup of that's under my control.

Just have a look on Amazon, for example. Plenty of new thumb drives for sale.

There are plenty of people who want a quick, convenient backup on physical media under their control and who don't need >1TB of space for what they want to back up. Thumb drives fit the bill well.
