Comment NAS (Synology) and offsite backup (Score 1) 680

Pretty simple solution is to get a NAS like the Synology box ( and then set up some sort of offsite backup as well. Just remember that pictures are really not a replaceable sort of thing. If I lost pictures of my kids or of places I've been there is no way I could ever re-create them. If I lose my resume, or my tax forms, or even my music collection, who cares? Pictures of my kids standing for the first time? I'll pay some extra money to have multiple copies in multiple locations. This is not the place to skimp.
