Multiple copies on multiple mediums. Period.Data Stick, Memory Card, DVD, Hard Drive or ??????
This is for storage of pictures, videos, and Documents. Is one safer then another or longer lasting? The memory cards and data sticks are small and easy to store.
Must be some really huge flash drives."Redundancy is good, Redundancy is good"
Having multiple layers of redundancy is the best policy. Always assume that a drive *WILL* fail, not within the next week, but immediately after you place a file on it. Make multiple backups. I've learned this the hard way.
But to answer your question, I've had better luck with flash drives than I have with hard drives over the years.
Thanks for all the great information.
I was also thinking of a StarTech duplicator dock (SATDOCK2REU3 USB 3.0) to backup (Clone) hard drives but not sure how good they really are. There is some software that will backup and clone hard drives also. Acronis is one that many use. It would be nice to just replace a drive if the hard drive crashes without reloading the OS. I am currently using windows 7.
