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
. 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.
