I'm trying to back up to cloud but don't think storage will be sufficient @bashCypher

Also, worst case, if I had to use the USB for backup, I could just scan the drive using an antivirus on a computer, would that work? Because I wonder how effective Windows antiviruses are in detecting android malware, though the companies for both the products are always the same. I have a Total Security suite right now that claims to run PC to mobile scans, so wondering if it could detect the USB infected with Android malware

thank you for the response. I understand wiping a SD card/USB is different from a simple format as in wipe overwrites all data and makes it irrecoverable? Could you recommend some good wiping software for all kinds of drives - SD card, USB drives, hard drives? Because I've searched online and while I found a few, I don't know which would be a trusted one and will do its job efficiently.
