Congratulations on recovering the situation.

In my view, the terms "backup" and "cloud" in the same sentence are a non sequitur. Given how cheap external hard drives are (I've seen 2TB drives for $100), I'd go with a local backup that you know you can access. Buy two drives and alternate them, keeping one in a separate location from your home. Swap them periodically.
