Tin foil hat;

The internet is BLAZING fast now, very hard to tell when your box is getting tapped, now a days it can be legally downloaded for the slightest reason

Use an sd card for all your personal files from now on, they come pretty big now, (as of this writing 512 gigs), or a smaller one at a much lower price 112 gigs should be fine for most people.

I would remove the card every when you leave the computer alone, however you do run the risk of losing that card so back up frequently

You just need one, keep swapping out the information to a bigger external hard drive when it gets full, I would NOT use the cloud for sensitive files either way.

Point all your files to that drive so nothing goes internally

If you're computer savvy, you can partition the ss card and dual boot when you want Linux or some other operating system.

Dual booting to an sd card is a long tutorial that's everywhere on the web if you want to give it a go, Ubuntu has no extraneous overhead do it's blazing fast even on an sd card.
