Ah, I see. It's really just a matter of "do you have enough space". Cool! I certainly do so I am glad I'm not missing anything. DP plus online backup for the MOST critical stuff like family photos and movies is just about as safe and secure as it gets!!

Yes, it's mostly a matter of having enough space to duplicate the data ... and then to "reduplicate" in the case of a failed drive.

 

Also, as I've mentioend before, the Seagate Archive drives work very well with StableBit DrivePool. Especially, if you mainly have videos or other files like that. Write performance isn't fantastic (but it's still pretty good actually!), but if it's a concern, then get the SSD Optimizer balancer and a couple of SSDs :)

And they're the best price per TB ratio on the market (reliably at least). 

 

 

 

And yes, having online backup is important as well.
