I totally agree, I once lost 2 years of family photos when the HDD died and I didn't have any type of backup.

My advice about any type of backup is: there can never be enough backup. I learned my lesson and now my photos and files that are on my PC are backed-up on to a RAID 5 NAS and I also use an online cloud backup service just in case something like a fire destroys both my PC and NAS. I also recently started backing everything up to an external HDD that I bring to work for safe storage. Call me paranoid but better to have and not need than to need and not have .

As to something that is as disaster proof as possible I would recommend something from ioSafe like the ioSafe N2. No need to worry about something as mundane as a fire or flood . Add 2x4TB Western Digital RE4s or 2x3TB WD REDs if the RE4s are too expensive.
