    The point is that you have nothing offsite. If you look at the old link, you’ll notice that someone lost all their history because everything was local. I’m a certified disaster recovery consultant and getting data to a second location is a basic concept.

    I totally get why one would worry about (1) reliance on a cloud provider over whom you may have no control, (2) pay fees for cloud storage and (3) not wanting to risk keeping everything at “home” ie at risk

    As I mentioned I have a Synology disc station that backs up itself...and there are many on the market

    For example, this review came out yesterday:


    If you really want to keep back ups, at a different location, why not use a friend with their own NAS? Reciprocate and then there’s no cost to either of you. Just a thought

    Agreed, local storage is good, but a cloud back-up will prevent loss if say, your house burns down, floods or if somebody breaks in and steals all your stuff. That happened to me one time. Had a break-in and they took all my electronics. Fortunately, it was a new computer that I didn't store photos on.
    I am guessing if you have 2 external drives, then your are reducing the chance of loss due to failure.

    I have been using Crashplan, but they have changed the rules a couple times. Had to upgrade to business, then it wanted me to update an old computer to continue keeping that back-up on that one. Considering looking at another cloud back-up. Considering how California seems to be burning down around me, I really need a reliable cloud service.
