    Default Is OneDrive a safe storage for roms?

    Not sure what section this goes in but.

    I haven;t found any answers on this, but just in case some other sites get hit with Nintendo DMCA's, I started uploading some (mostly N64 and DS) to my OneDrive, I know sharing them gets you in trouble and I don't plan on that, but money is tight and I'm not allowed to get an external HDD until October.

    So is it fine If I stored them without sharing or anything until I get an external HDD?

    It should be fine. These types of sites don't normally snoop on your personal storage. It can never hurt to keep your files in a password protected rar file with an inconspicuous filename though.
    *PSA* Wii Redump collector's can now unscrub ISO files. So scrubbed games can now be verified. You can find the program to do this here

    Also as long as it's not downloaded a thousand times by different ip's per week you should be ok too
