First, I can't say this is a flawless system because so far, I've not had to depend on the cloud backup I use. But, I have a two disk "mirror RAID" set up in my PC. I have had to replace a drive more than once but the mirrored drive is still unharmed. Because I could have a catastrophic computer failure or something could happen to my house, I also use Crashplan. The cost of an unlimited cloud backup for my entire household is cheap considering that constitutes 2 PC's, and 3 laptops. That way, in a worse case scenario, I won't lose much. Now, I keep meaning to also do periodic backups on an external HDD (belt and suspenders) but I honestly am not as reliable on doing this as I should be. I thought about an NAS (Drobo or another) but worry that this, too, would be lost in a catastrophe like a house fire unless it is off site.
